    Hi all,

    I'm off to a local SW consultant opportunity event this Sunday.

    Was wondering if anyone had been to one, and if so, what sort of things happen there?

    Many thanks x

    Hi Maria, I've been to a couple. I've been a consultant now for about 18 months so anything I can help you with just give me a shout.

    They'll basically tell you everythin you need you know about the job including the pay structure, what you need to do to promote your group, the admin side of it etc. The great thing about them is they're very involved in that they give you soooo much info but there's absolutely no pressure at all. After you've heard it all you get the choice whether you want to walk away or get a follow up call.

    Sounds good, like the fact there's no pressure on you, I do tend to buckle under pressure :D

    Do you know roughly how long they go on far? Also, I have no clue what to wear, whether it's smart or casual or a bit of both! lol :)

    I went to one a little while back & whilst it is quite expensive to buy the franchise I think the support offered is great.

    I was in a position where I could have been redundant & would have needed to find something to do part time, as it was I was redeployed so panic over. But my biggest concern was that you are effectively paying to start a new business venture, which would normally be no problem, but in the current economic crisis I thought it was a bit too high risk. As we al know the media have scaed the country into not spending any money!! I also have a commercial banking background so would probably be a little more cautious at this present time.

    Hope this helps.

    My advice to you is go to the event, take on board what they have to say and make up your mind from there. There's a lot of info to take in so you don't have to make a decision immediately. If it helps at all I went to the event, was very undecided so left it a few months and eventually went into group seven months later so you don't have to rush it.

    It lasts about and hour and a half and you can wear what you like x
