How I can help you

I can help you start or improve a service business, especially consulting, and develop a business plan. I created and teach Effective Consulting: How to Start or Improve Your Consulting Business, an all-day class taught throughout the year in San Francisco and the East Bay. Through my own consulting practice and as part of a management team for a local firm (we grew the company from 2 to about 150 people over 15 years), I have seen consulting approaches that work - and that don't - in a wide variety of industries, organizations and cultures. These lessons have been invaluable and can be articulated and shared. And these lessons apply across client industries and across types of consulting.
