    Fair-fee approach

    Fees vary according to the number and frequency of sessions, plus your honest selection of a place on the fee scale which is fair for you and your circumstances and that is equally affordable and workable for me. The fee scale seeks to accommodate women who are on high, modest and low incomes - and those who are self-funded or sponsored by their organisation.

     

    I have allocations of space in my diary for specific rate bands - and can be offered when the fee zone you have selected on the scale, becomes available.

     

    When engaged in the development of potential of an organisation or product, together we look at how best to attribute the value of the work we do together, and agree that a part of an investment package.

     

    Briefs for projects and commissions that require clarification and development prior to a proper timeline and budget being feasible to assess and plan, will be charged at an hourly rate.

    Sessions

    Almost all work is completed from my small studio in rural East Sussex - in the forest where Winnie the Pooh was written.

     

    I use Zoom and Skype for customer meetings and sessions. I venture out to customer sites occasionally, subject to availability.

     

    In the past, have set up studios in corporate and business offices in support of specific projects and series' of initiatives. This can be explored if appropriate.

     

    Almost all sessions take place over Skype or Zoom and are arranged at mutually convenient times - either ad-hoc or in a series or rhythm.

     

    Personalised journeys and retreats currently take place in rural East Sussex. Alternative geographies, landscapes and venues can be considered, subject to availability and workability.

     

    I work with women on a one-to-one basis for journeys of 3, 6, 9 and 12 months.

    On Retainer

    Providing ongoing support on a project or to a leader, limited retainer arrangements can be explored once we have worked together over the course of a series of sessions and/or journeys.

    Commissions - Licensing

    The industry standard in this area of work is that a commission for the design and making of an artefact will involve the payment for the work completed to research, design and make it. The work is licensed to the commissioner or end-customer - for an agreed period, subject to terms such as above the line or below the line use, global or national use and length of the term of the lease. The designer retains the copyright. Upon the end of the term of the lease, the licensee can extend or fully cease all use of the licensed product.

     

    I've been through this process many times with commissioners and customers - and it's very straight forward and easy to understand. It's research, design and materials time plus a separate license fee.

     

    There are rare times when a commissioner or customer wishes to - and can afford to buy the copyright for a designed and produced artefact. This is an option should you wish to explore it.

    Design Input to Licensed Products & Programmes

    Where design input is given to the design / development of a leadership journey or artefact, please expect to explore IP rights as part of our discussion.

    On-site engagements

    On the occasions where on-site work would radically improve the process or outcome(s) we are working on, I may work on-site, subject to availability.
