I have been doing Management Consulting with our realising it. I now know how to market my services and solutions to my clients. I loved the concept of on-selling. I just realised that I have not been exposing all our service offerings to our clients so they may not know how we can help them better achieve their goals.

"You need to know how to translate what you know into business value" - Peter Alkema. It was great to hear about the consulting world straight from the horse's mouth. I urge you to take this course before you consider consulting as a profession.
