SCP May 2024 Town Hall Meeting

May 28, 2024 6:00-7:00 EST We invite you to attend a monthly one hour Town Hall via zoom hosted by Marc Sokol, our 2024 SCP President. This is an opportunity to come together as a professional community, to share your experience and discover that of other SCP members. Each month we will start with a topic of interest featuring some aspect of our society. We will then open it up to wider discussion of any topics those online wish to bring up. 2024 Town Halls meetings will feature an array of topics including: How did mentors shape the progress of your career? How can peer coaching raise your game as a consultant? Best consulting practices from a member of our Financial Psychology Special Interest Group Consulting to the United Nations and how you can contribute How consulting to a family business is different (we have a Special Interest Group for that!) Do you want to publish a professional book? Tips from our Consulting Series editor. Presenter: Marc Sokol, SCP President Our May Town Hall Focus So, you’d like to write a book? For all of the different ways we might brand and showcase ourselves as consulting psychologists, having a published book (or two) seems to be of special value. What makes it worth the work? And if you choose to write a book, what are the key decisions to best develop your ideas? At our May town hall, we will compare experiences of book editors, authors, and those who are contemplating whether this is the right way forward. Joining us is our esteemed colleague, Rodney L. Lowman, who is not only the author and editor of multiple professional books (21 to date!), including the editor of SCP’s book series on Consulting Psychology. Come join us for a discussion about the writing process and for our focused networking conversations. You just may find the insight you are looking for regarding your next book. Rodney L.
