Econsult is the obvious solution to the challenges presented by the Covid-19 lockdown.

Pre Covid-19 it was often necessary to call in a consultant who could introduce a fresh perspective to your everyday business challenges. That need for you to consult has increased due to Covid-19 because you are moving into uncharted territory. Many of the challenges facing your business are new and may need new insights in order to overcome them so who better to turn to than the global experts. They have dedicated time and energy to understanding the consequence of Covid-19 and may come up with solutions that will keep your business viable.

However, due to the stringent regulations of the lockdown, face-to-face meetings are no longer advisable and you need to look for other options. It is Covid-19 that has driven us to use the technology such as Zoom and other remote platforms that can deliver a range of affordable solutions. We are now able to consult with global experts without the financial and health costs of meeting in person. 

We have a growing panel of consultants each an expert in their field. Many have developed a topic to suit a variety of challenges, while others are able to tailor make a solution by working with you and your team in order to understand the issue before offering a suggestion.

Either way the interaction between you and the expert consultant can easily be set up. Once you have identified the expert who best suits you we can share your brief with them and give you a quotation detailing what they can be deliver. Upon acceptance of the quote we will set up a meeting on Zoom (or other platform) that can be facilitated by Speakers of Note. During the meeting you can interact or just listen, questions can be asked on the fly or you can "raise your hand" to clarify a point. The meeting can also be recorded and supplied to you for later reference.
