The Society of Professional Consultants

Helping Solo Professionals Develop and Grow Their Businesses and Effectively Serve Their Clients

The Society of Professional Consultants (SPC) is a professional development organization for consultants, solo professionals, and entrepreneurs. We offer networking, mentoring, and education for our members. The SPC facilitates virtual networking and workshops for both new and experienced consultants from around the world.

We encourage our members to collaborate, share best practices, and learn from each other. The SPC is not a referral network and we don't require our members to refer business to each other.

The SPC welcomes and encourages participation in our community by consultants of all ages, backgrounds, and identities. We are committed to promoting and sustaining a culture that values mutual respect, tolerance, and learning. Our standards of conduct page has more information about our policies and member responsibilities.

Virtual Workshop - Wednesday, May 18th at 3:00 p.m. EDT

Beating the Broken Cookie EffectTM

Do you wonder if you’ve ‘paid your dues’ or 'proven your worth' yet? Do you believe your pricing is ‘what the market will bear’? Do you struggle to grow your company with more revenue, not necessarily more work?

These are all symptoms of a bigger problem: ‘The Broken Cookie EffectTM’. In this interactive workshop, you’ll learn about:

    • The secret ingredient for effective pricing
    • The critical difference between an ideal buyer and an ideal client
    • The good news and the bad news about building value
    • How building value impacts your sales
    • How you can generate more revenue with less stress

Since 2006, Patty Block has been empowering women business owners who are experts in their fields. Her advice is gender-neutral and is not limited to women consultants.

She teaches her clients how to turn up their power to price, sell, and run their business on their own terms. This means fine-tuning their operations and scaling their revenue for strategic growth.

By forming a partnership of unbiased accountability, she helps consultants position their companies--financially, operationally, technologically--for game-changing results.

There’s no charge for this workshop.

About Our Speaker:

Patty Block teaches women business owners who are experts in their fields how to turn up their power to price, sell and run their business on their own terms. This means fine-tuning their operations and scaling their revenue for strategic growth. 

As their trusted advisor, she brings a unique perspective, having experienced and solved many of the same complex issues women face, as leaders, moms, daughters and sisters. 

Forming a partnership of unbiased accountability, she helps women position their companies--financially, operationally, technologically--for game-changing results.

Patty has approached each step in her career with an entrepreneurial spirit: from successfully operating a business as an independent lobbyist and political consultant, to serving as the Legislative Coordinator and the Charitable Foundation Director for First Interstate Bank of Texas, to adeptly filling multiple leadership roles at a leading international school, including Director of Operations and Development.

Patty raised three fantastic kids, all of whom are business owners and also work in Patty’s company (she essentially raised her own workforce!)
