How Does it work?
Not all consultancy interventions require ongoing face-to-face interventions.
We keep in contact using a variety of technologies. For example we
offer regular monthly coaching calls by telephone or if you like we
can include the use of online conferencing, or video conferencing.
Various web based project management systems can be used to bring
together groups to enhance collaborative working and learning. Surveys,
research, literature reviews and other work can be carried out behind
the scenes and reported on in virtual conferences.
What are the benefits?
- Reduced costs with increased value for money. The reduced
costs come from less money spent on consultant time as well as
significantly less time spent in face-to-face meetings with associated
- Increase in value comes through the long term relationship
built through the ongoing intervention through regular calls. Virtual
consultancy enables the drip-feed of support for transition processes.
- Just-in-time support can be provided for tricky change and
development processes. Consultants can be available by telephone,
email and online conferencing when you need them.
- Coaching for specific projects is a key task for many virtual
consultancy clients. We provide high level and challenging mentor
support for project leaders.
- Need a one-ff plenary speech for your conference but prefer
not to pay large travel costs for the speaker? We have experience
in providing these and in managing the conference dynamics virtually.
- Training at a distance is possible and we have developed
interactive materials designed to support virtual learning. These
hands-on products enable high quality learning to take place.
We have a number of years experience of virtual consulting, of introducing
and using the technologies and in finding ways to structure and build
the relationship dynamic in a virtual environment.
