If you are itching to launch your own business after your time in the corporate or business world, then this course is for you. "Consulting" can feel like a broad, nebulous thing, and you can have many consultants in a room who are not actually in competition with one another.
What is the product? How do you describe it to your prospects? How do you connect with people and expand your reach?
This course shares a method to define what your particular skill and expertise is, and how to take that to the market. We will also get you ready to present yourself to the world, and then build a network of contacts that will keep you in business for the long term.
This course will get you - the independent business consultant - up and running so you can focus on client growth right from the start.

I liked the pace of the course. It was more like a conversation and reminded me to think of a lot of things I wasn't thinking about. I believe I will revisit this several times before I launch my business because it has value before you start, during your planning, and once you've launched.
Rebecca was really great, she clearly knows her stuff. I hope to keep in touch with her, as I feel like she would be a very good resource!
Some interesting insights throughout the explanations. However, the course is a mix and match of different presentations at different moments, which reduces its perceived value. There's a mix of useful information but also repetition. It is worth for the discount price.
