SRA CONSULTANCY SKILLS
One-day workshop – 22 April 2010
I’m Simon Haslam and will be running a one-day workshop on Consultancy
Skills for the SRA, on 22nd April, and I thought I’d take the opportunity
to tell you a little more about it.
We will be covering the skills and techniques necessary to operate as a
consultant, rather than as a researcher, and is therefore open to people
working in a variety of different fields. These techniques are equally
applicable to those working as an internal consultant and those with an
external commercial client base. I ran a similar workshop for the SRA last
year which was very well received. Topics that I’ll be covering include
consulting; their preferences relating to this and how this can be applied
successfully within organizations by studying the frameworks that govern
I’ve been working as a consultant for the past twenty years, with the last
ten being as a Certified Management Consultant. My areas of specialism are
marketing and strategy and most of my clients are in the public and third
sectors. I’ve worked on a self-employed basis, as a non-equity director of
a consulting firm and now as a co-owner of a social research and
consultancy business. During this time I’ve had the privilege of seeing
first hand what methods and approaches work better than others.
A ‘techniques toolkit’ has been prepared for each participant and, given
the current commercial environment, we’ll be looking at the consultancy
competencies around relationship building and winning work. Hope you are
able to come along.
