As president of Women in Consulting (WIC), one of my responsibilities is to work with Jen Berkley of The Inside Advantage to prepare WIC’s annual best practices and compensation survey. This is my first year doing the survey, while Jen has done all nine!
As part of the process, I make myself available to bloggers and the press who want to discuss the survey. I had the pleasure of talking with Christine Oneto with GirlsinTech.net, who featured the survey in a recent blog post: “Ninth Annual WIC Compensation Survey Shows Increased Revenue, Optimism.”
Jen and I will be reviewing this year’s results in a WIC-sponsored webinar on November 3 at 11:00am: “WIC 9th Annual Compensation Review: Gain Insights into Consultant Compensation and Best Practices.”
I hope to “see” some of you there.
Traditional and Online Networking Among Top Advice for Business Success
San Jose, CA – September 20, 2010 – Women in Consulting (WIC), a collaborative community of professional consultants and small business owners, today announced the results of its ninth annual compensation survey. Key findings indicate that consultants are optimistic about their consulting practices. Almost half (49 percent) of the respondents reported their revenue increased last year, while 69 percent expect revenue to increase this coming year. Moreover, the vast majority (84 percent) are long-term consultants with no plans to stop consulting.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Chip Camden, an IT consultant and blogger for the TechRepublic, who was writing a post on the lack of women in the IT consulting field. The timing was serendipitous, as Women in Consulting (WIC) was in the midst of compiling our (I’m WIC’s current president) annual compensation survey results.
The results of that interview and Chip’s additional research are presented in his post, “Where Are the Women in IT Consulting?”
