The UNPITCHD Model
Pay for the skills, not the overheads
While large consultancies continue to charge lofty fees for project work, strategic talent has become increasingly independent.
Our model strips out fixed costs to double down on what matters and help you make the most of your hard-earned budget.
We use data to identify the best-in-class deliverables and create tailor-made teams of independents consultants.
At the heart of our model is an extensive mapping of the skills required to deliver a strategy project to the highest standard. We 'hoover up' publicly available data to create industry benchmarks and create tailor-made teams of independents.
Have a look at what we can do:
How does it work?
Frame your strategic challenge
Scoping your project and requirement is a critical step for any challenge. Consult our offer page for guidance, or simply get in touch. We're always happy to discuss and help you define your needs and desired outcome for your project.
Compare your options
Still on the fence between a traditional agency or a group of independents? We'll send you a shortlist comparing the highest-rated consultancies and independents for your challenge. It is free of charge and includes critical data points such as client testimonials & budget estimates
Receive your team & project proposal
A senior independent will be designing your proposal. They are responsible for the quality of the work and the management of the team. The proposal includes a recommendation for the ideal team of independents and their skills. No one-size fits all: the size and skills of the team vary with each challenge.
Get the work done... and give us your feedback
Data is the lifeblood of our model. Towards the completion date of your project, we'll be back in touch to help you assess your consultant(s) and provide feedback. We never publish consultant reviews but they are available to potential clients.
Our fees & philosophy
Reward the doers
90-80% of a consultant's rate goes directly in their pocket. The remainder is used to design the work, pay for business insurance and manage the network. By comparison: large consultancies only pay their consultants between 10 and 30% of the rate they charge to the clients.
Free, unbiased information
Our shortlists are based on information picked up by our algorithm. We'll send it to you as it is, for free.
Feedback as currency
Our recommendations are free. Your feedback is the currency that helps us continuously improve our services.
