External - Cambridge Enterprise Ltd: Consultancy 101

Mon 8 Oct 2018


Are you considering becoming a consultant? Perhaps you are already consulting, but want to learn more about how to work more effectively, get the best price for your skills or simplify admin work? 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.

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 in how to manage consultancy projects effectively, sharing expertise on best practice, tips on making life easier and trouble-shooting for some of the key issues faced by consultants.

This workshop is designed for all levels of experience and we welcome applications from anyone who is currently employed by the University.

  • This workshop is designed for all levels of experience, whether you are already acting as a consultant or are considering doing so
  • Further details regarding PPD's eligibility criteria are available
