About the programme:

As the world recovers from massive unemployment levels due to COVID-19, early trends show that the new world of work is shifting away from full-time jobs to short-term contracts and multiple gigs.  In a world where freelancers and "gig-ers" continue to replace permanent jobs, how can you stand out and be successful?

The Johannesburg Business School brings you an exclusive Management Consulting programme to help you navigate this emerging world of work.  It is designed to give you contextual understanding as well as the mindset, technical skill, and demeanor required to be an outstanding consultant or freelancer.  You will learn how to:

  • Identify and define the services you will offer
  • Engage clients and win work
  • Deliver sustainable results
  • Establish good practice and long-term relationships that ensure repeat business
  • Avoid common problems
