If you are thinking about starting or further developing an independent consulting practice, consider registering for the Introduction to Independent Consulting Workshops with Matt Feldmann. Matt has presented several abbreviated versions of this workshop to CEA as part of our speaker exchanges. Participants will work independently and in small groups to create a business plan that will form the basis for an independent consulting practice. Matt leads the weekly Independent Consulting Chats, is the president of the St. Louis evaluation affiliate, a member of CEA, and co-edited the New Directions for Evaluation special edition on independent consulting.
