Helping Solo Professionals Develop and Grow Their Businesses and Effectively Serve Their Clients
We have expanded our series of lunchtime meet-ups! Join us for lunch at Bertucci's, 5 Cambridge Park Drive at the Alewife T station in Cambridge, MA, on Friday, September 29, at 1 p.m.
As in Burlington, there is no need to register in advance, and there’s no fee to attend other than the cost of your meal. Just show up at the restaurant and ask for the Society of Professional Consultants table.
The restaurant is at the Alewife T station at the end of the red line. Bertucci's has their own free parking lot so you don't have to park in the MBTA garage.
When you turn off of Route 2 at the Alewife T stop onto Cambridge Park Drive, the Bertucci's parking area is on your immediate left when you get to the stop light. There's a sign for "ExecuStay Apartments," and another sign nearby for Bertucci's Parking. Take a left at the light followed by a hard left into the Bertucci's parking area.
Remember: No registration is required!
SPC members have long expressed an interest in an additional channel for unstructured networking and just plain schmoozing about their business triumphs and trials. We launched our Meetups a while back, and have received very positive feedback from those participating ... and so we’re pleased to announce our next Lunchtime Meetup, to be held Friday, October 13, at 1 p.m.
For those who haven't yet participated, here’s how it works: You just show up!
No need to register or pay a fee.
We push tables together until there’s room for everyone. Find yourself something appealing to nosh on, settle at the cash register, and join the group.
We’ve picked 1 p.m. on a Friday as our start time to avoid the crush and let people take as much time as they feel they can afford…and maybe start a new conversation they can pick up later!
How Consultants Can Thrive in the Face of Adversity
Adversity is a normal part of consulting work. Bill Singer knows that the success or failure of our consulting practices often hinges on the way we perceive and respond to challenges posed by common setbacks: unreasonable client demands, failed communications, scope creep, collections issues, and constant time pressures.
And the challenges we face aren’t just those specific to consulting. We’ve got to pay attention to the larger world around us, and today it’s a VUCA world— volatile, unpredictable, chaotic, and ambiguous. That makes resilience a key skill to employ when you face inevitable obstacles.
Participants in Bill’s workshop will learn to identify early warning signs as well as tools and techniques to bounce back from adversity quickly and to persist with confidence and energy.
The key is to learn how to cultivate a mindset that makes you unstoppable. Bill can show you how.
