Description

Consultancy Skills development seminar
- enhance your personal capabilities, consultancy engagement opportunities and create impact

We would be delighted if you could join us at the inaugural consultancy skills development seminar. This is the first in a series of events designed to assist all academics, researchers and other staff with their external engagement and more specifically personal consultancy work.

Through the updated External Work Policy (effective from 1 June) the University has restated its commitment to the many benefits of external work and particularly where it has potential to demonstrate impact.

Keynote speaker
Steve Watts has kindly agreed to share his professional experience of working as a consultant, including contextualising the expertise you provide and fulfilling clients key drivers.

Steve worked for over 20 years at PA Consulting Group, a leading technology development and management consultancy firm, and recently formed CambridgeIQ, to offer flexible and integrated services to clients from start-ups to multi-nationals. He combines a deep knowledge of technology innovation with business design to deliver real commercial benefits to clients.

He is the consultancy advisor to Cambridge Minds, a model for providing technical expertise from Cambridge University’s cohort of Post Docs and is passionate about optimising the bridge between academia and industry. Steve is involved with several Universities in different capacities including as a mentor at the Ingenuity Lab at Nottingham. Read more here: http://bit.ly/IL17SteveWatts
