Would you like a consulting assignment in the South Caucasus? The South Caucasus is the location for the delivery of one of Exponential Training’s most exciting and unusual assignments.
Commissioned by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Exponential Training will be delivering a consulting skills training course for aspiring and actual consultants in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia.
The course aims to develop core consultancy skills and professional ethics for Business Consultants in the South Caucasus. The longer term aim is to contribute to the development of sustainable local business consultancy markets and formation of an association of consultants.
I envisage working closely with both EBRD and the Institute of Consulting (IC) over a sustained period. This is an interesting part of the world and I believe there is a real opportunity to help with the development of a thriving and quality consulting sector. I have already spoken to my colleagues at the Institute of Consulting and would like to think we can establish a South Caucasus branch of the Institute.
The entire Exponential Training Team had to admit that it had to look up on a map to find out precisely where the training was to be delivered. Having established the training is to be delivered in Georgia’s capital city, Tbilisi, the team has since been researching the region. This is one of the rewarding aspects of working international. Learning about different cultures, business systems and political environments can be daunting and throw up unexpected challenges, but it helps to keep you on your toes!
