    About This Role:

They must: 

    • Partner with sales reps and other business development partners to identify prospects for these consulting offerings based on analysis of clients and prospects who attend Forrester events and workshops, request analyst inquiries, or read research reports.
    • Develop sample deliverables and associated marketing materials for repeatable consulting offerings based on our published research.
    • Achieve personal revenue targets on a quarterly basis by delivering research-based consulting projects, including conducting intake interviews and analyzing client data using a published methodology to evaluate client inputs, synthesizing conclusions, and developing recommendations.
    • Develop high-quality, well-structured, and user-friendly Microsoft PowerPoint, Word, and Excel client deliverables.
    • Present or co-present findings and recommendations to clients.
    • Establish and manage client expectations on timelines and deliverables, ensuring adherence to project commitments.
    • Identify opportunities for new research streams based on feedback from clients and trends in our engagements with clients.

    • A combined minimum of 10 to 15 years of management consulting experience and experience in support of technical professional services delivery efforts supporting marketing, sales, and customer service business objectives.
    • Demonstrated ability to develop consulting offerings, scope and price projects, and close consulting deals, in partnership with sales professionals.

    • Ability and desire to work on multiple strategy projects concurrently — balancing the needs of each to achieve superior client satisfaction.
