Presented by Harry Cummings and Donald Murray
Harry Cummings has been doing consulting with a focus on evaluation for 50 years and this webinar draws on that experience. He is joined by Don Murray who has worked with Harry for the last 20+ years.
The webinar covers topics such as: what skills do you need, how do you get started? How do you find new clients? Client communications; the important elements of a proposal.
Most importantly, we will give you the opportunity to ask all the questions you have thought about but have not had a chance to answer.
The webinar should be of interest to those with experience and many unanswered questions as well as those just starting.
