There is a sense of intrigue when you hear someone say, "I am a Consultant." In the I/O realm, we have so many questions like what line of consulting they do, which companies they work for or have worked for, etc. CIOP and RIOPA are hosting this interactive round table discussion to meet practitioners to get the behind the scenes look of the Glitz & Glamour of Consulting. We would love for you to join us.
