3 ways to get the most out of a consultation
When you have an idea, but you’re not sure how to take the next step or what you need to do to make that idea a reality in the end, it’s beneficial to attend a consultation. Totem Learning offer consultations (unique in their approach) for clients and organisations who have an idea but would like advice on a course of action. We are specialists in gaming, serious games, gamification, VR/AR/MR/XR as well as how to give your business some leverage using immersive solutions.
1) Research the consultants
Are they the right people/company to help you?
Are they easy to get in touch with?
Are they going to challenge you enough?
2) Have an open mind
Don’t be defensive about your idea, learn from them and take advice
Don’t go in with a fixed idea because they might point out flaws and tell you to take another route to get a quicker and better result
3) Be prepared to answer questions
In order to gage the scope, you will need to provide some information on budget, target market/audience, logistics, expenses, future of industry and so on
It is good to have lots of questions and to be able to make it a two-way discussion
It is important to be positive in these meetings because that means communication will be easier and a good working relationship can be carried out from the very start.
