IEEE-USA Consultants Workshop - Charlotte
The IEEE-USA Alliance of IEEE Consultants Networks Coordinating Committee (AICNCC) and the IEEE NC Council invite you to attend a full day Workshop that will cover a range of topics on consulting. This Consultants Workshop event is designed for those who are considering consulting as a professional option – either now or in the future and practicing consultants who want to improve their networking and marketing skills.
The slate of expert speakers will include nationally recognized leaders from the IEEE who are successful consultants themselves as well as local professionals especially relevant to the Carolinas.
Topics will include; HOW TO DETERMINE IF CONSULTING IS RIGHT FOR YOU, SETTING UP YOUR CONSULTING BUSINESS, IMPROVING YOUR NETWORKING SKILLS, ACHIEVING PROFESSIONAL SUCCESS THROUGH PERSONAL GROWTH, A full FINANCIAL WORKSHOP FOR CONSULTANTS, and special information about consulting in NC and SC.
We’ve worked to keep the registration fees low, after all the IEEE is non-profit. Included with your registration we’ll be serving continental breakfast, lunch, and afternoon refreshments.
We welcome non-IEEE members and students to come participate.
