compact advisory package

 

We often receive requests from clients who require specific, ad hoc, strategic advice or research, but do not want to establish separate projects every time this occurs. Our report customers often wish to follow up, to obtain more in-depth understanding and advice on specific issues and markets.

In order to help deal with difficult questions that would benefit from independent, expert advice, but do not merit a complicated, external consulting project, RBR offers a compact advisory package.

 

 

The principal benefits of the package are…

  • Advisory days to be used at your discretion
  • No time limit for use of days
  • No minimum size of request
  • Access to sector/country experts

Typical advisory requests include…

  • Ad hoc requests lasting from a few hours to a few days
  • Internal client workshops/presentations
  • Independent reviews of strategic plans and business cases

 

  • Expert advice and opinions on client strategies
  • Access to interim findings from RBR research prior to publication
  • Setting up meetings and interviews with selected institutions
  • Independent perspectives on competitor activities
  • Unbiased views of market shares
  • Bespoke analysis and case studies
