Why should we engage a Consultant?
Generally, organisations engage a consultant for three main reasons: if they do not have the necessary experience or expertise internally; if they require professional, independent advice ; or because you don't have the time or capacity to meet a need.
We are operating on a limited budget but need some expert assistance. Are you flexible with your fees?
Four Rivers has a sliding fee schedule which takes into account the complexity and time urgency of the task, the capacity to pay and customer loyalty. We offer an obligation free consultation for the not for profit and corporate sectors. We also commit 15% of our billable hours each year pro bono as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility.
