Free, all are welcome – bring your lunch!
1.5 CES LUs
Our first Professional Practice Forum of 2015 will explore some of the pros and cons architects and design professionals may encounter in a consultancy role and/or when hiring a specialized knowledge consultant for a project.
What sorts of specialized expertise are available for architects to utilize? What risks are there for the firm or the consultant? When do the lines become blurred between being an employee and a consultant?
After attending this roundtable, participants will be able to:
- State two advantages and two disadvantages of being a consultant and/or hiring a consultant.
- State at least two risks of being a consultant and/or hiring a consultant.
- State three key differences between consultants and employees.
- State ways a specialized knowledge consultant can help you win the next project.
