We want to provide a community in which consultants can interact on a regular basis. We want to share ideas, maximize cost benefits available to small groups and to benefit from our interdependence on one another. We intend for the network to foster a deep sense of trust among its members that will be greater than the sum of its parts.
We anticipate that this model will help accelerate new relationships which will create benefits like: faster concept to proposal to project timelines; consulting engagements whose fees continue to grow; and access to some of the most experienced health sciences consultants available today.
Business interactions must create a strong sense of trust among network members and ensure that appropriate resources be available to members who secure contract work. Through our shared intranet, members will have access to industry best practices, templates for improved business efficiency, and educational programs that will expose them to areas of expertise they may not have in their own practice.
Over time, this network's revenue stream will rival that of a top-tier consultancy and will have an operating margin of a small company, thereby ensuring that its members receive a profitable return on their initial equity investment.
