How do we do it?
As a substantial cadre of most experienced professionals and subject experts, as trusted colleagues we bring many decades of executive, assignment and project experience to share. Packaged up experience as short briefings or calls without charge, through more formally scoped briefings, reports and events.
Normally we can answer any question or request in three working days on a simple membership model – no contract – no commitment.
We have most information for the United Kingdom, USA and the European Union, though can cover most countries.
We are providing Expertise as a Service (EaaS).
Some questions we are unable to answer by local law or statute in which case we will let you know as quickly as we can and suggest alternatives.
If you want marketing specific content then please go to our partner service at Marketing Compass.
If you want something with specific relevance to you organisation we provide paid-for briefings, cohorts, or whatever you need, to manage your challenges or assist with personal needs.
What are the costs?
Notes and published briefings are generally free of charge, scoped briefings, specific research, workshops, formal legal advice and similar are charged for by prior arrangement.
