Every consultant needs a short bio that s/he can use for brochures, websites, directory listings, speaking engagements or in an introductory email.  In fact, this bio is often the factor that determines if  a consultant gets the  call for a particular project.  Whether you’re starting from scratch, or honing your current profile, please join the IEEE Consultants Network and Barbara Bix, to discuss what works, and then develop a bio that anticipates and addresses prospective clients’ needs.  We’ll also discuss special considerations for particular venues—online and off.
