Internationally acclaimed consultant Dr. Alan Weiss, FCMC, known as "the consultant's consultant" will be the keynote speaker at Consulting Conference 2010, the first management consulting conference sponsored by the Institute of Certified Management Consultants of B.C. (CMC-BC).
Weiss, the author of more than 30 books about consulting, headlines a slate of prominent speakers who will lead workshops and panel discussions at Consulting Conference 2010, which will be held May 28 and 29 in Richmond, B.C. at the River Rock Casino.
"We've adopted the theme 'Charting a Course to Value' and have designed a program that will provide value to management consultants, their clients, business and to society as a whole," said Mary Colak, CMC, president of CMC-BC.
In addition to Weiss' keynote address, Consulting Conference 2010 will offer a choice of workshops and panel discussions on topics including: change management, quality management, client engagement, project management, corporate social responsibility and technology and social media trends. A networking reception will cap off each day's activities.
Participants may also elect to register for an additional day-long workshop May 30 called The Consulting Assignment Solution Framework. Led by long-time management consulting trainer Kevin Schwenker, FCMC, this workshop will cover the diagnosis and action planning stages of the consulting process.
Early conference registration discounts are available through March 31 for both CMC and non-CMC members. A student rate is also available. CMC-Canada members will receive 15 professional development credits for participation in the conference and an additional 10 credits for the consulting framework workshop May 30.
