Consultant specializing in profitability and executive development. If you're running a company with revenues, I can help you get more of it. Fanatical love of operations, marketing, sales, systems, and strategy.
If you're buying freelance or contract services, the most important thing is the preparation you do beforehand. Getting a very clear scope and very clear requirements does two things -- first, it lets you know if you can afford to go cheaper (for instance, outsourcing to Eastern Europe or the Philippines) or if your requirements call for someone who is top-notch at what they do. Second, and more importantly, any freelancer/contractor much prefers working with someone has a clear set of requirements and knows what they want. When you're very clear and come across easy and pleasant to work with you, you can get preferred rates. I've got a lot of experience both as a buyer and seller of contract/freelance services, so do follow up with me for a call if you're interested in fleshing out a gameplan for your particular situation.
Tremendous value! Focused, substantive, I have direction and action steps, just from the short time we spent.
Lots of great insights from this call. I thought I came in with a pretty solid business plan, but Sebastian was able to open my eyes to things I hadn't even considered. Several of the suggestions he made will undoubtedly increase sales tremendously. I've already scheduled a follow-up call with Sebastian on Clarity for one month from now.
Great call with Sebastian. We worked out a plan for my business and he left me with clear action items. Most importantly, he is holding me accountable to my plan. I cannot recommend him enough.
I was impressed with how quickly Sebastian got to grips with my business model, and quickly found issues and solutions that I can start working on.
I will certainly call him again to get more insight, and a plan for execution, let me just digest first... ;)
In just 20 minutes, Sebastian helped me zero in on what I was struggling with and gave some really useful advice/insight on how I can move forward with a better sales process.
I joined the call with tough questions. . . Sebastian listened, thought hard and then turned around actionable feedback and reference material. I expected a lot from Sebastian but I left the call with more value than I thought could fit in the timeframe.
Excellent first call, and I will be doing another with Sebastian in 3-4 weeks time. Something important that he pointed out (which I didn't see from my perspective) was how strong my current position actually is and to leverage it instead of giving up. He gave concrete examples of what I could do to improve my situation. What we discussed will return value at least 10x to me in the next month alone as I implement it. If you're considering doing a call, go ahead, it's more than worth it.
Sebastian brought gamechanging insights to our staff, helping us overhaul and upgrade our systems for volunteer management, sponsorship, key partnerships, brand leverage, and strategic planning. His approach was extremely professional, yet also very humanizing. He struck rapport and inspired trust with those with whom he interacted, and left our entire staff excited about valuable next steps (already put into motion through his conversations) to improve our operation. Sebastian is one of the most talented and poised analytical thinkers I've ever worked with, and would be a huge asset to any organization and any team. I cannot recommend highly enough Sebastian's ability to inspire, activate, and bring clarity to groups of people on missions to build amazing organizations.
