Find True Consultant Love: Picking the Right Match for You

This will almost certainly happen when considering how to optimize your CRM. There are lots of great consultants out there, but only some are actually great for you. How do you figure out which one to hire?
In this session, we’ll talk with the DC Bar Foundation as a case study into what truly makes for a great consulting relationship. We’ll discuss how to find a consultant who matches YOUR level of expertise and understanding, so that your consultant doesn’t trap you in the weeds or float you uselessly in the clouds. We’ll also focus on great consulting relationships as ones that model the optimal system functioning or staffing arrangement you need. They don’t just tell you want to do; they do the work with you.
