please read my Tips guide: PGS_Tips_On_Hiring_Consultants

I hope it helps you find just the right person.


Basic Strategic Planning Sessions – $4-8K


    • My clients gather key performance data on their company according to my specs (takes 2-4 days)
    • I review all materials sent by the company for topline and bottom-line trends
    • I conduct a half day of online and in-store market research to prepare a high-level competitive POV on the client’s offering

Pre-Session Dinner

    • I always have dinner the night before our sessions not only to establish rapport, but to learn more about the personalities I’ll be communicating with the next day. I always tailor the pace and manner in which I consult to each team
    • You pay for the dinner!
