"Your bill rate strategy is one of the most important components of your business plan," says Zaino. "During this economic downturn, it's more critical than ever to accurately value your services and know for certain exactly how low you can go if necessary. In addition to the conventional wisdom, we will also explore new pricing approaches that put more at risk up front for you, and help clients get started quickly. We’re thrilled to be able to offer this free educational session, especially when so many talented consultants are out there bidding for new work."
