Core skills programme

The essential skills needed in any consultancy business

Our core skills programme covers the essential skills needed in any consulting business. There are three key tasks in a consulting business: selling the work; delivering the work; and managing the business of consultancy.

Typically these tasks go with career progression. New consultants will be wholly engaged in delivery. With increasing experience, they will take on selling responsibilities; then they might go on to take a role in managing the consulting business.

Our core skills programme consists of three courses that support consultants every step as their careers progress. The Core consultancy skills course provides training in delivery; Selling skills for consultants does the same in selling; while the Managing the business of consulting equips consultants to address the particular challenges in running a consulting business.
