Senior international development leader Yvette Gonzalez joined Devex to talk about her experience working as an independent consultant with clients such as the United States Agency for International Development. Gonzalez, who served as a regional coordinator with the agency before establishing her own consulting business, Gonzalez Global Solutions, has now worked on numerous USAID-funded projects, including in Haiti, Burkina Faso, and Niger.

In this webinar, Gonzalez shared tips for establishing and maintaining a brand as a consultant — including face-to-face interaction, publishing accomplishments to social media, and building an online presence. She also discussed how consultants can calculate their worth — and recognize when to say no to projects.
