Engage With Orviss Consulting 

Before any work can commence we would need to have a discussion (free of charge) to clarify your needs and how Orviss Consulting can best support. 


This would give you unrestricted access to me for general advice, suggestions, ideas – basically acting as a sounding board, tapping into my considerable commercial expertise and well known pragmatic approach. The scope of the Retainer could also include high level review of documents – the specifics of your needs will be taken into account when we agree the pricing for the Retainer.

The Retainer isn’t where we implement specific projects – those would be the subject of a separate arrangement – but it does secure access to me, whatever your question. This means you don’t have to make an investment decision every time you may need some help.


Project Based Fee

This approach would be best utilised where you have a specific need and we would need to discuss and agree the scope of the Project, timescales and level of input required. Only once we are agreed on a fee will work commence.
