I love the variety that you get with being a consultant, however there are downsides. You are forever on the lookout for the next project and obviously until you are well established life can be a little precious. However the good mostly outweighs the bad with yesterday being a good example. I had an early start as I was due in London to meet a fellow consultant to talk about how we might collaborate and help each other out. Whilst driving to this meeting I worked my way through my call list and took part in a WhatsApp meeting with the SayLaLaLa team, I also had my daily catch up with the Gravitas team.I then heard that my 4pm meeting with an old friend was postponed which was disappointing but given how much he has on his plate I’m not talking it personally.
I then had a call with a perspective client before a meeting with another potential client. In amongst all of this I had some good news regarding a project which I’m goin going to take part in for Changeplease.
The day ended with a series of calls with the GJC team as we have a number of projects in various stages.
I’m sat writing this drinking a coffee and catching up on admin work before heading over to SayLaLaLa’s London office to meet with the senior team.
