Attend a virtual meeting with members of the SPC and the Association for Consulting Expertise (ACE) from Maine.
It’s a new world for consultants. We can’t meet with our clients in person until later in the year. Some of our clients have suspended projects or temporarily closed their businesses. We’re quickly learning how to run virtual meetings, work from home effectively, and network remotely.
Join us on Wednesday, April 22nd for a panel discussion with members of the SPC and ACE. You’ll have the opportunity to talk about your new challenges with a network of experienced New England-area consultants. We’ll share what we’re doing to get through the crisis and recommend potential solutions and resources to help you through these tough times.
Some of the topics we plan to discuss are:
How Do I Apply for SBA Loans? The CARES Act made loans available for consultants and solo professionals. Robin Hamilton will review PPP, EIDL, and other SBA programs so you can apply for economic relief for your business.
How Can I Use Online Talent Platforms to Find New Clients? Online services like Catalant and Business Talent Group match consultants with projects. Gina Abudi will share how she’s found new clients through these platforms and share her best practices for success.
How Can We Manage Our Reactions to Stress-Related Client Demands? Under stress we don't behave as we normally do...and neither do our clients. Join Theresa Peek as she explores this topic during this time of stress.
How Can I Pivot My Business Focus as the Economy Changes? The world has changed - and it continues to change. How do you pivot amidst the changes to keep your business healthy? Join a conversation with Terry Johnson to discuss innovating your business.
