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 (, for the client perspective, and Ash Shepherd, Project Strategist at NPower Northwest (, 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 (!
