I treat any discussion with potential, current or previous clients as confidential. Confidentiality is maintained throughout a project and indefinitely unless disclosure is required for legal reasons.
Dr. Bonarius Consult works with a range of companies and reserves the right to simultaneously work for competing clients in areas that do not directly conflict. If there is any doubt that a conflict of interest may arise, I will discuss this with the concerned parties while maintaining client confidentiality at all times.
Listen and learn: I am happy to discuss your project in confidence and with no obligation. Following discussion to fully understand your requirements and processes, I will provide a quote for my services at no charge.
Sometimes a short preliminary analysis or work may be necessary to clarify next steps or strategies. In such cases a fixed fee will be agreed beforehand. Following that, I shall provide you with a proposal for the full project, and you are then free to accept.
By Time: per day or hour on an agreed professional rate. The total can be capped by agreement, avoiding surprises.
By Project: an agreed fixed fee, depending on the nature of the work and the size of the project.
By Retainer: allows for continual services over a period of time. A retainer fee is agreed and invoiced regularly and you can draw on Dr. Bonarius Consult as needed, up to an agreed limit.
