Services & Pricing
Discover the power of our concise workshops!
Our workshops are not about abstract theories or impractical business jargon. We focus on concrete outputs: Real, actionable tools and processes that you can put to work in your business immediately. We understand the high cost of traditional consulting services can be a barrier for many organizations. That's why we've worked diligently to design our workshops as cost-effective alternatives. Without sacrificing the quality of the service, we've managed to offer expertise, insight, and practical support at a fraction of the cost of a conventional consulting firm.
All workshops include preparatory calls, three-hour workshop sessions, and follow-up calls. Each workshop comes for 3000 EUR (excl. VAT).
