Fluency with contracts and their associated legal concepts is essential business knowledge for 21st century consultants. It calls for a different skill set from the technical work consultants train for, and yet it may not be covered in degree courses at all.
The challenge of managing and negotiating contracts can be reduced by familiarity with some key concepts, backed up by good systems and resources. In this free one-hour seminar, Risk Managers Wendy Poulton and Natalie Sullivan will draw on their experience reviewing consultancy agreements to share tips for easier contract management, and recap some fundamental knowledge for any business.
What should you include in a checklist for reviewing client contracts? Do you know how to quickly check if AS4122-2010 has been amended? How can you respond to the client who says you’re the only consultant who won’t sign their terms?
Our last webinar for the year will provide a good grounding in contract fundamentals, and hopefully even some useful take-aways for the very experienced negotiator.
