Title: Never Search For a Job Again - How to set up your own consulting practice

Speakers: Avani Doshi, Principal, A. Doshi LLC, and Sandy Petty, Chief Financial Officer and Managing Partner of Executive Financial Partners, LLC


Sandy Petty & Avani Doshi came to The FENG the "normal" way - during their job searches - but neither of them expects to be in transition ever again! One by accident and the other with intent, they both founded their own consulting firms and have found it to be highly rewarding, albeit with its fair share of challenges. Against the backdrop of their respective journeys, Sandy and Avani will discuss the pros and cons of independent consulting as a career choice. 

Sandy and Avani will adopt a fire-side chat approach for the meeting and welcome questions about their experiences.
