What SMEs & Corporate Bodies in Cameroon look for Before Hiring a Consultant?
I am doing this short write up for rising young consultants. I think they get many things wrong as they try to build their careers because they do not understand these things.
In my 10 years of training and consulting in Cameroon & 12 other countries here is what they look at. They look at 5 key things
- High professional knowledge & expertise
- Facilitation skills – the ability to facilitate the process that lead to success
- Practical experience in your industry – No one wants to work with a consultant who is not succeeding in their own industry. Theoretical consultants do not last
- Extra knowledge and experience in other industries
- Business owners & executives like consultants who have walked in their own shoes
Truth is business owners & executives do not just select consultants out of excitement but they go through a thought process.
