If you're thinking about a new business, I'll assess your concept and its gaps, weaknesses, strengths and value proposition, and give you frank advice about what I see as the opportunity and what the next steps might be. I also work with existing business that are looking to expand, diversify or scale.
I've learned that catching up for a coffee and a brain pick as is so often requested ends up in 8 hour days of free coffees. My advice is dispensed on a fee-for-service model which is charged transparently at $130 per hour + GST, you will be given a quote for the work based on an initial email exchange where you have to pitch the idea in 500 words or less.
Depending on the scope of work, fixed rates and discounts may apply for larger projects. I charge in $AU not rupees. Types of projects I take on include:
Go-to-market strategy for new concept or product
Business planning + refinement
Brand development + strategy
Investor pitching training
Value proposition authoring
Crowdfunding advice + campaign planning
Digital + Social Media Strategist

Doctor Digital, one of my blog avatars.
I'm the original word shaker. Superfast, superfly and superfun to work with. I know a little about a lot of industries from all the clients i've worked with over the past 10 years. I get your target audience and what words grab their attention.
From web site content, annual reports, magazine and newspaper articles, to press releases, blogs, advertising copy and tweets - if you say it, i'll spray it. More importantly, I like to listen to what my clients want, and then give it to them. Imagine that!
I charge by the word, hour, or job, depending on what suits you and me. If you need design and branding or digital tools as a package, I work on your brief with a suite of talented peeps who will bring the whole shebang together.

I'm an experienced board member and Chair and am always open for interesting paid board appointments (I undertake no more than 3 volunteer board positions and they are currently full). My areas of expertise for boards are in commercialisation, business development, marketing, PR and digital communications. My board work spans governance, operational and crisis management for a range of organisations, and I hold an AICD graduate qualification. Plus i'm a woman, and as we know there are precious few of those on boards, so i'll help you achieve gender in balance too.
