Women In Consulting (WIC) Launches "Consulting 101" Course

Ten-Session Online Series Aimed at New and Prospective Consultants; Enrollment Is Limited

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - April 09, 2014) - Women In Consulting (WIC) today announced the launch of its "Consulting 101" online series designed to help new and prospective consultants succeed.

WIC is a collaborative community offering professional consultants and small business owners a powerful resource for building strong businesses. The organization helps consultants throughout the U.S. be successful by providing a way for them to collaborate, share referrals and resources, and stay abreast of best practices.

"Consulting 101" will consist of interactive webinars, practical assignments and online "office hours" about topics such as how to define a market, select a business entity, and deal with contracts and finances.

Participants will complete assignments about each of the topics, and post them for review by a small group of peers. In effect, they will have access to the expertise of the instructors and the opinions of their peers. To assure participants get the personal attention they need, enrollment in the online series is limited.

"We believe the combination of pertinent information, practical applications, and 'community' feedback will be of great value to people who are interested in a consulting career, or have just gotten started," said Kristin Baier, president of Persuasions Distance Learning who spearheaded this WICademy course. "Participants who really take advantage of all the course has to offer will emerge with an actionable plan for starting and enhancing their businesses."

Dates and Fees

"Consulting 101" will begin Thursday, May 1, and run almost weekly until Thursday, July 17. The sessions will be at 12 pm PT.

The fee is $199 for WIC members, $299 for non-members. A refund of $100 of the course fee will be given non-members who become WIC members during the course.
