I have read last week's postings about consultancy networks and, coincidentally, attended a presentation by the Institute for Independent Business last Friday.
Unlike most of the users of this forum, I have no experience with a global consultancy, just years of trouble shooting and internal consultancy within several large blue chip organisations, the latest of which has recently offered me a generous redundancy package.
An organisation like the IIB seems to offer a good way in to consultancy for people like me, who work outside the areas in which welive and, in an effort to restore some work / life balance, want to become consultants in our home areas.
Any thoughts about this? Are we all crazy or can some of these organisations actually deliver something useful for people in the start-up phase of consulting? If so, which netweorks (if any) would you recommend?
