You can schedule a number of different types of meetings with us:

If you would like to discuss a data problem or opportunity with us, then please feel free to book a 30 minute introductory call to go over this and work out next steps.

2) Consulting (Existing agreement)
Schedule: 30 minutes | 60 minutes (existing billing arrangements)

If you want to schedule a call under an existing consulting arrangement you have with us, please use this link. Billing will be as per the terms of the agreement.

3) Consulting (Pay as you go)
Schedule: 30 minutes | 60 minutes (from £150 + VAT per 30 mins)

If want to discuss specific issues in greater depth, or to get detailed advice about something data-related, but don’t want to set up a formal consulting agreement, then please book an ad hoc consulting call. These come in chunks of 30 minutes and are on a pay as you go basis.
