Details

Sometimes the scope or complexity of a technology project demands a third hand, a particular expertise, and/or an objective eye. In these situations, a good consultant can make the difference between a successful launch and an embarrassing failure. But how do you know when you need a consultant? How do you find a good one? And, most importantly, how do you ensure that your consultant adds value, advances the project, and doesn’t break the bank?

It’s a PDXTech4Good Smackdown-- Client vs. Consultant! We joke, but join Tim Wilson, Executive Director of Western Arts Alliance (http://www.westarts.org/), for the client perspective, and Ash Shepherd, Project Strategist at NPower Northwest (http://www.npowernw.org/), for the consultant’s inside scoop. It will be a fun, informative, and fast-paced talk on the essentials of working with expert advisors.

As always, come early to mix, mingle, and enjoy tasty refreshments from Foster & Dobbs (http://fosteranddobbs.com/)!
