Event Details

Arrive at 6.45pm for an 7.30pm start.



As independent consultants we are running small businesses and need to have a clear plan to follow if we want to be as effective as possible. One tool that has been widely used for SME’s is the Business Model Canvas, helping to identify customers, channels, resources, partners and revenue streams.


This session, run by Peter Thomson, will use the model to illustrate some of the key decisions needed when running a consultancy business. Once the model has been introduced it will be used as a catalyst for participants to discuss aspects of their own work. Everyone will have the opportunity to leave with a partly completed canvas and will be encouraged to continue to use the tool in the planning of their own business.

This interactive session will tap into Peter's experience of running an HR consulting business for 25 years but will also encourage the sharing of experiences by everyone in the room.



Our speaker:

Peter Thomson, Director - Wisework Limited

Peter Thomson is the Chairman of the Consultants’ SIG and has been an HR Consultant for 25 years. He specializes in flexible working and has co-authored a best-selling book on the future of work. He regularly speaks on this topic at conferences.
