..if you had all the business systems and consulting tools in place you need to get started in your consulting practice.
..if you spent less time worrying about ‘how to’ run your business and had more time to enjoy the challenge and reward of your technical work.
..if you were clear on your ideal consulting practice. Imagine intentionally targeting and winning more work with clients that align with your values and purpose. This means wasting less time writing proposals for work you won’t enjoy.
..if you had a healthy consultant mindset and solid negotiation skills under your belt. You would spend less time under-charging and over-working and more time doing great work for which you are valued. You would have a more sustainable and stable income stream.
..if you had concise writing and presenting for impact tools in your pocket. You would spend less time hair-pulling on unwieldy reports and presentations. And get more great feedback from clients who receive your message clearly.
Imagine how you'd feel to be increasing the impact you seek.
We're Janet and Helen
We want to help women connect, share and improve how to show up as consultants.
We transitioned to work as independent consultants over 5 years ago. Before that, we worked in and for consulting firms and NGOs for over 30 collective years.
We have a solid track record of finding, developing bids for and winning great pieces of consulting work. We have fun working together on work that we choose to go for. We work with motivated and engaging clients.
We are intentional about finding pieces of work where we believe we can add specific value to the development space.
We remember all the questions we had when we made the leap. We also remember it was not easy to find answers and support.
Get Started in Consulting is an 8-week programme with your peers.
You will learn and take the exact steps you need to get started and flourish in your consulting practice

We promise to show up consistently, with honesty and integrity as we accompany you on your journey.
We developed our own consulting systems and tools to help improve our consulting practices. This is what we want to share with you. The step by step process that you can make your own.
We continue to learn and work on our consulting mindset and practice. And we love the journey!
We want to work together to have a bigger and better impact on the social impact and development space.
