Enhance Your Consulting Relationships

by on

Whether you’re brand new to consulting or have been in the industry for 20+ years, the ability to successfully manage client relationships is a critical skill. It’s one that can make or break your career. As consultants, we’re expected to constantly develop and hone our skills in managing relationships with new and existing clients. We all know that this is no easy task when also trying to juggle the delivery and management of multiple client projects and teams, the negotiation of contracts, fees and rates, and everything else that comes with a successful consulting career.

Have you ever wondered how others in the industry tackle the issues that you’re faced with on a daily basis? How do successful consultants apply their experiences to each project they work on when they are all so vastly different?

For many, the utilization of available tools and resources, like CRM software for consultants, is the key to keeping track of numerous client relationships. Are you currently leveraging a relationship-tracking tool to grow your connections? How do you maintain your relationships with clients that you have worked with previously, but are no longer working with?

While day-to-day responsibilities vary widely across different projects and clients, there has to be a way to leverage successful practices that others have identified, right? In turn, you’ve worked on a multitude of successful projects yourself, so there’s no doubt that others can benefit from learning about your experiences. But how do you share your insights with others in the industry?

Now for the good news! Bullhorn and TheConsultantLounge have collaborated to bring together consulting experts from leading firms like IBM, Centric Consulting, Point B, and SEI for a webinar on September 25th. These experts will share their insights, experiences, and tips on how to build and manage client relationships in the challenging yet rewarding world of consulting. There will also be time for your questions so that you can identify which of the experts’ insights are most applicable to your professional situation.
