Strategic Planning for Independent Consultants and Graphic Facilitators


Growth Management River Trip℠ Virtual Workshop

Using a fun river-rafting metaphor, you’ll work as a team with a small group of other consultants during a series of facilitated Zoom meetings, to develop or update a growth plan for your independent consulting practice.

Positioning your practice for the Covid Era involves tradeoff communication decisions about what services you offer, to whom, and how you work. You'll make these decisions, update your portfolio of services with a client-focused trial offering and identify the most promising members of your professional network.

Your plan will be concrete and ready to implement, with resource needs identified. And it will have the forward-looking scope of a strategic plan, built on the success of your current services and reputation.
