Consultants Learn to Weather the Economic Storm at Consulting magazine's Consulting Summit 2009

PETERBOROUGH, NH--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - Consultants nationwide are signing up now for the "Consulting Networking Event of the Year" -- Consulting Summit 2009, May 6 at the Union League Club of Chicago. There, they will connect with their professional peers and explore today's urgent theme: "Practical Solutions to Today's Market Pressures."

The spring Consulting Summit 2009 offers a rare and invaluable opportunity for Consultants to network with, and learn from, the profession's top leaders. One such noteworthy speaker, this year, is Doug Lattner, Chairman and CEO of Deloitte Consulting. In his eagerly awaited keynote, Mr. Lattner will share how, in the face of the new economic reality, he is leading Deloitte's business (an ever-prosperous model of consistency) differently today than even just a year ago. He promises to share the new levers he is pulling and the management actions the firm is taking to preserve and strengthen its business and more.

Consulting Summit 2009 offers a full roster of Consulting experts, eager to share equally critical knowledge and provide attendees with the insight they need to weather the volatile economy in 2009; insight unavailable anywhere else. Amongst the exclusive faculty at the spring Consulting Summit: Brad Smith, COO, Kennedy Information and EVP, Kennedy Consulting Research and Advisory; Brent Neiman, Assistant Professor of Economics, Booth School of Business, University of Chicago; Dean Fischer, President and Co-Founder of West Monroe Partners; Mark Hargis, Managing Director and Co-Founder of The Claro Group; Cary McMillan, CEO and Co-Founder of True Partners Consulting; Bob Potter, Managing Principal, RA Potter Advisors; and Michael Travis, President and CEO, Hitachi Consulting.
