The Society of Professional Consultants

Networking, Mentoring, and Education for Consultants and Solo Professionals

The Society of Professional Consultants (SPC) is a professional development organization for independent consultants, solo professionals, and entrepreneurs. We offer networking, mentoring, and education for our members. The SPC facilitates virtual networking and workshops for both new and experienced consultants from around the world. Our membership is limited to solo consultants and business owners.

The Society for the Advancement of Consulting (SAC) has closed effective January 1, 2024. The SPC is continuing SAC’s mission of Growth by Association. We’ve created an expanded community where you can share best practices and gain new insights with professional consultants from around the world.

We encourage our members to collaborate, share best practices, and learn from each other. The SPC is not a referral network and we don't require our members to refer business to each other.

The SPC welcomes and encourages participation in our community by consultants of all ages, backgrounds, and identities. We are committed to promoting and sustaining a culture that values mutual respect, tolerance, and learning. Our standards of conduct page has more information about our policies and member responsibilities.

Virtual Workshop - Wednesday, April 17th at 3:00 p.m. EDT

Find Your Focus: How to Define and Deliver a Message that Resonates

The SPC and PICA: Professional Independent Consultants of America are partnering to bring you this workshop.

Iyour message not getting through?

Do people nod along as you speak then hesitate to take the next step?

You’re not alone.

So many consultants get overlooked and lost in the crowd because they can’t capture audience attention.

It’s frustrating when your efforts go unnoticed, especially when you know you have so much to offer.

Let’s change that narrative! Join us for a transformative session that will bring laser focus to your business messaging.

In this dynamic and interactive workshop, you’ll learn:

  • Clarity and Precision: Craft a focused messaging strategy so you’ll be clear and concise and eliminate the rambling that dilutes your message.
  • Effective Networking: Harness our natural and conversational approach, which opens up more opportunities to meet the right people and get better leads.
  • Immediate Insights: Participate in small discussion groups to get real time feedback and unlock the secret of what resonates with your audience.

While others spin their wheels casting a wide net and endlessly tweaking their 30-Second Elevator Pitch, your new focus will fill your calendar with meaningful conversations that lead to business growth.

Join us to find your focus and stand out from the crowd!

There’s no charge for this workshop.

About Our Speaker

Andrew Winig is a renowned Elevator Pitch Coach who blends his improvisational, musical theater, and business backgrounds to make his virtual and in-person programs fun, entertaining, engaging, and practical.

Andrew noticed that people’s eyes glazed over and he got zero leads whenever he shared his conventional 30-Second Elevator Pitch. He thought “There must be a better way!” So he spent the next 8 years applying his engineering mindset to identify and test new skills in search of a simple approach that works consistently. His ground-breaking book “Elevator Pitch Handbook: The Step-by-Step Guide to Starting Conversations” condenses what he discovered into 51 readable pages that will forever change the way you talk about what you do. Andrew wants you to get better leads from your Elevator Pitch and shares his unique and effective techniques through email newsletters, virtual and in-person workshops, private coaching, and keynote speeches. You can sign up for his weekly Elevator Pitch Tips Email Newsletter at
