The Global Consultant: How to Make Seven Figures Across Borders
by Alan Weiss and Omar Khan
(John Wiley and Sons, 240 pages, hardcover)
The only book of its kind to prepare both new consultants and veterans for successful global work, including multi-national organizations, local organizations, alliances, electronic media, virtual presence, branding overseas, diversifying markets, and much more. In turbulent economic times, it’s vital to create as many potential consulting engagements and relationships as possible. These two authors, who have collectively traveled to over 70 countries and conducted projects for hundreds of organizations all over the globe, provide a systematic and pragmatic guide to worldwide work (including how to get paid rapidly and lucratively). They even provide their favorite clubs, restaurants, hotels, and recreation spots, and ideas to best turn international travel into the experience of a lifetime.
