OUR BUSINESS MODEL
It has always been the aim of this organization to be streamlined and efficient. We have no physical space, just virtual. Our “associates” are seasoned experts who have been assembled to solve a problem, a team of specialists selected especially for your particular challenge. The make-up of the team assigned to your project or account may be different depending on a particular assignment. Andre selects and conducts each team, orchestrating all members on a strict plan of operation. Andre conducts briefing meetings, extracting information from each client to best understand each challenge before selecting the team best fit to the assignment. In all cases, Andre plays a major role in the leadership and management of your project.
