Consulting Showcase 2012 – Frameworks

Consulting Roundtable

September 27, 2012: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The basis of our consulting practices is to offer clients our professional and expert advice in various subject areas. Our uniqueness is derived from the frameworks we each use to improve our clients' situations. You are invited to a special Consulting Roundtable event where four consultants will reveal their frameworks for peer review, which will be provided by you! Reminiscent of business speed dating, each consultant will only have 15 minutes to present their framework and field audience questions and comments. Come out, learn about what your peers are offering, and help them improve through your feedback.

Speaker Profiles

Bill Burnett (Speaker), THNK

THNK provides the client company the Behavioral Advantage tools necessary to put this science based method in place.
