Testimonials

The (New) Career: Consulting! What is it? What does it take?

“This past week I had an extremely valuable experience of attending Laura’s seminar on Career: Consulting. The program provided a clear overview for those considering a career in consulting. The presentation was clear, concise, and provided concrete direction and advice. Laura has empathy and a depth of experience that is critical for anyone considering a career. (Decided to give consulting a try and still consulting today.)”

Decided to give consulting a try and still consulting today.

“I am currently at a crossroads in my career. Continue with “corporate life”, which I have done very successfully for 35 years or pursue a life of Independence in a consulting role. While I have hired 100’s of consultants in my career, I didn’t know much about what it took “behind the scenes” to be successful in consulting. I attended Laura’s seminar called “The (New) Career: Consulting! What is it? What does it take?”. It was spot on what I needed.”

Decided to remain in the corporate world and continued to look for a new position.

“I attended Laura’s recent seminar “The (New) Career: Consulting! What is it? What does it take?” after she was highly recommended by a trusted friend in the consulting space. Over the last couple of years, my career has been focused on project-based work and I was seeking guidance to define next steps. Laura successfully presented a clear outline and definition of consulting successfully, and facilitated thought- provoking discussions within our attendee group, which consisted of a great mix of people at pivotal points in their career. I would highly recommend Laura’s future sessions to anyone who is thinking of a future in consulting or looking to elevate their current consulting career.”

Continued to be her own boss as a consultant.
