TriCountyCommunity Network’s (TCN) monthly meeting will feature a presentation on “Demystifying the Consulting Process” by Lori Moffa, Consulting Director for the Nonprofit Center at La Salle University’s School of Business. A consulting project is a major investment for any business or nonprofit. Being well-informed about the
process can make the difference between a successful project that achieves the desired objectives or that gets mired down in disappointment and unmet expectations.
Ms. Moffa will objectively present the key components that comprise a consulting project, from making the decision whether to undertake one, to hiring a consultant, to the clarification of roles, sample RFPs, and contract negotiation. Participants will leave with the ability to exert greater control over any future consulting project, confident that they are following best practices that provide greater assurance of success. This presentation will be relevant to attendees and their companies or organizations, whether their interest in hiring a consultant lies in strategic or business planning, fundraising, finances, or some other aspect of organizational management.
