External - Cambridge Enterprise Ltd: Consultancy 101

Wed 23 Mar 2016


This course is for University staff only. Students are not eligible to attend and any student bookings will be cancelled.

Consultants use expertise gained from University research in order to provide services to external organisations. Any University researcher can undertake consultancy work, but it can be challenging to manage and administrate alongside University teaching and research commitments.

Cambridge Enterprise is delighted to offer this free workshop to University Staff in how to consult effectively which will share expertise on best practice, give tips on making life easier and trouble-shoot some of the key issues faced by consultants.

This is an ideal opportunity to develop your skills, providing a refresher for academics already acting as consultants or an introduction for those considering consultancy in the near future.

Target audience

University staff only. Students are not eligible to attend.
