Our Client Success Guidelines
We work hard to bring our members quality opportunities from companies serious about hiring best-in-class contract talent and boutique agencies. We ask clients to use us when the need is immediate and they are ready to hire.
When clients are open about their budgets for a specific project or retainer, everyone wins. Consultants who charge higher fees don't waste their time pitching and clients don't waste their time communicating with consultants who are out of budget.
Minimum Engagement Fees
Our members have a minimum engagement of $5,000. For smaller projects that don't meet our minimum, we are happy to suggest other resources for you to explore.
Our members are truly best-in-class, with impressive pedigree, testimonials, portfolios, and proven results from their work with reputable companies. Their ideas and processes are extremely valuable and are not included in proposals. However, terms, deliverables, scope, pricing and legal jargon are all included in proposals.
