Since 2007, John has utilized various models for engaging with organizations, including:

  • Project/Initiative-specific engagement wherein John’s services are contracted for a specific project outcome. If properly scoped, the project can be contracted for a fixed fee. Alternatively, a daily or hourly rate can be established if scope is uncertain.
  • Ongoing part-time leadership of an organizational function such as CFO, COO or Head of Corporate Development, at an established monthly, daily or hourly rate.
  • Interim full-time leadership of an organizational function such as CFO, COO or Head  of Corporate Development, at an established monthly, daily or hourly rate.
  • Ongoing part-time engagement wherein John’s services are contracted for a variety of projects or initiatives, at an established daily or hourly rate. This is the model under which most of John’s engagements have fallen.
