Admittedly it seems unlikely that a grizzled old veteran can help you energize important initiatives, but I have never failed to produce. The challenges we'll tackle involve fundamentals that I understand. Communication skill is high-level, honed for a lifetime. The fruit is hanging lower than you think.
Our goal is to help your vision and ideas come to life. I don't pretend to have the wisdom to bring whole new ideas. I do bring a combination of energy, focus and new angles that combine with your goals and savvy to lead to results. We will include your other team members -- internal and external -- in solution development.
Personal compatibility is important, of course. Our initial discussion can explore fit as well as high-potential priority subjects. I will have done initial research but will listen more than speak. First-impression thoughts provided if requested.
We will tailor our working arrangement, but this pattern has been typical:
Initial research and session: n/c
First project research/recommendations: $500-$2500
Initial monthly retainer: $2500-$10000 (3 month minimum)
Ongoing retainer: negotiated
