Three excellent reasons to make contact with me.
If you’re thinking of contacting me for any of the following reasons, please do!
1. You’ve landed a complex/large order for Commercial EPCs or DECs with an established, solvent business (e.g a local authority) and you want somebody reliable, experienced and capable to take some of the heat off your back. There are no shady middle men involved and invoicing is transparent and direct with invoices paid by the name on the note within 14 days.
2. You want to discuss my rates for mentoring or consultancy work. You’ve read my profile and are familiar with my skill set. You have a clear set of objectives that you wish me to deliver, you understand the remit (and limitations) of a consultant and are not confusing consultancy services with other types of professions such as business development, account management or selling stuff.
3. You own or manage a building within my region that requires a Commercial EPC or DEC and you want a quote.
If you’re thinking of contacting me for any of the following reasons, please don’t!
1. You’re selling stuff, or want me to sell stuff for you.
2. You’re a recruitment agent and are trying to build up your database by harvesting personal data on the back of fabricated contract opportunities.
3. You’re a narcissistic sociopath masquerading as an as yet undiscovered entrepreneurial genius and want to convince me to ‘partner’ with you, take on your risk and work for free.
4. You want unlimited free advice/access to my client book, but instead if being honest about it, you pretend that there is a ‘load of work’ happening in a few weeks.
5. You want to put my website on the 1st page of Google. Well, it’s already up there mate (if you’d bothered to even check before spamming me).
Unless we have an established, long term working relationship I generally charge up front to keep things simple. For consultancy work I charge a fixed day rate plus travel expenses, for survey work I quote an all inclusive price for each job separately depending upon location and complexity.
