“Consultants shouldn’t waste marketing dollars on advertising and brochures that merely assert their competence,” says business book author and conference organizer Henry DeVries, founder of the New Client Marketing Institute. “The best proactive lead generation strategy is to regularly demonstrate your expertise by authoring books and giving informative and entertaining talks in front of targeted groups of potential new clients.”

According to DeVries, the quarterly summits cover the following top ten places for independent consultants to find or create a perfect audience:

  1. Small-scale seminars and group consultations that the consultant hosts with four to eight in attendance
  2. Public seminars that consultants or others promote and charge admission to attend
  3. In-house workshops that pay consultants to present to one company only
  4. Local and national association meetings where consultants are a break-out session speaker, panelist or a roundtable moderator
  5. Radio and television shows that interview consultants for how-to advice
  6. CEO peer group meetings like Vistage (formerly TEC), Inner Circle and Renaissance
  7. College courses and extended education programs, like the ones offered through university extension programs
  8. Public workshop companies like The Learning Annex that pay consultants a percentage of the gate
  9. Chamber of commerce events, from monthly breakfasts to special workshops and seminars

10.  Teleseminars and Webinars that consultants host or where others invite consultants to speak


The April event is held at the oceanfront La Jolla Shores Hotel near San Diego and the May event is held near Times Square in New York City.
