Find an Industry Expert

Self-service expert identification

Without paying a ‘hefty’ commission to the middleman.

 

Most other companies act as the recruiter. They find the candidates (experts), and charge up to 50% of the experts' fee as commission. They typically won't tell you how much the expert is charging.

Goodman Lantern offers expert shortlisting service (the most time-consuming part). This allows you to have thought leaders and industry experts at your fingertips!

You will know what their consulting fee is and how to contact them. You can then choose to engage directly, or get us to make the introduction.

Either way, you don't have to pay Goodman Lantern a % of the expert's fee. We only charge the time (p/h) spent on research, making 'expert sourcing' up to 50% cheaper.
