How to be a consulting historian

  • The Cinema Room @ The Hub at Docklands 80 Harbour Esplanade Docklands, VIC, 3008 Australia (map)

Join us for this essential event for new members, aspiring consulting historians and seasoned professionals alike. We will hear from a panel of PHA (Vic) members with experience in the field, who will offer advice, ideas and lead a discussion based on their own experiences.

Come along and join us as we ponder questions such as: what are the things to consider when establishing and operating your own professional history consultancy? How can you get started? What are some of the pros? What should you watch out for?

Registrations for this event are now open. Book online now to secure your place. 

Following the event, members are invited to the Wharf Hotel, 18-38 Siddeley Street, Melbourne, for an opportunity to continue the discussion over a drink and a meal.

If you aren’t available to join us in person, the event will be recorded and made available as a podcast through the members only section of our website.

We hope you can join us!
