To study business consultancy is with the aim to become a professional, who in turn has the ability to give expert advice to a business or organisation, in many areas such as security, accountancy, law, human resources, management, finance, engineering, science any other specialised fields!
A consultant will usually be an expert in one of these specific fields and is seen to have a plethora of knowledge on the subject matter. The role of the consultant can fall under one of two general categories: internal consultant and external consultant.
An internal consultant is someone who operates within the organisation itself and is available to be consulted on in areas of specialism by other departments and/or individuals.
An external consultant is employed externally by a particular company. Their expertise is provided on a temporary basis, usually for a set fee. This form of consultancy is seen as a more freelance/self-employed method and generally engages with multiple clients.
Invaluable assets to have if you are looking to become a business consultant are time management, judgement, communication skills, team player, expert knowledge, responsible and a respected reputation.
On the other hand, another way to help progress your business is through grants. Small business grants are available for those looking to lower start-up fee costs and grow their business rapidly. These are rarely given by the government, and when they are, the main aim is to boost the economy and generate new jobs. Grants vary from soft loans, direct grants and equity finance. Seeking a grant is a risky venture, because at some point you will need to pay it back, and relying on your business is a gamble you’ll be taking.
