Here’s the FAQ on consulting.
Sometimes, it helps to have an outsider come in to speak to a staff, or arrange some training, or discuss management issues relating to the shift to new media.
For that reason, we’ve set up a “Speaker’s Bureau” of folks who are willing to travel and help you where needed. Each of these individuals has different strengths they can bring to a workshop session or boot-camp for your students and fellow advisers.
If you are interested in arranging for one of these folks to come speak on your campus, please contact them directly to make arrangements. While we are providing this service, we do expect that any such arrangements would include funds for travel and lodging for the speaker.
