PATCA Member Testimonials
Our members’ accolades affirm how PATCA can help enhance your expertise, to keep you consulting ahead of the curve with enthusiasm, efficiency and effectiveness.
PATCA is more energetic, plugged into Silicon Valley. With like-minded colleagues, you can avoid pitfalls, by learning from more experienced consultants.
The primary benefits to me are a combination of staying current in my field, networking, obtaining leads and referrals, and continued education in managing a consulting business.
This is our water cooler.
Leads from PATCA have more than paid for my dues over the years, primarily from clients finding my listing or the link to my site in the online directory. The website equals self promotion to a wider audience than on my own; I’m visible to others doing a search.
I learn so much from other consultants. PATCA is a premier educator of consultants.
One value of PATCA is in finding other consultants there who could help me. If I didn’t know someone to do a job, I would go to the directory online and ask others about someone I found there, to see if they say he/she is reliable. Working on a Committee or the Board is better, as you meet and know and see if they do what they say they will do. For me, all of that was extremely useful starting out; extremely helpful; later I was coaching others.
The Post A Project referral service allows me to tailor my pitch to the client’s needs. If I can tailor my response to suit their needs, I usually am able to close the sale.
