Running a Drupal consulting firm requires much more than Drupal development or design skills. You need excellent customer service, sales, project management, operations, accounting, recruiting, human resources — the list is huge! So how do successful Drupal firms make it all work?

We'll look past Drupal for an hour and focus on what it takes to run a successful consulting firm. We've assembled a top-notch panel of Drupal firm owners and managers to discuss what works for them and why. Addison Berry of Lullabot will moderate the discussion, and the floor will be open for questions.

Panelists include:

  • Todd Nienkerk, Four Kitchens
  • Aaron Stanush, Four Kitchens
  • Thomas Barregren, NodeOne
  • Vesa Palmu, Mearra
  • Matt Cheney, Chapter Three
  • Liza Kindred, Lullabot
  • Eric Gundersen, Development Seed
  • Tiffany Farriss, Palantir

This panel was inspired by DrupalCon San Francisco's excellent Best practices for managing a Drupal firm session.
