COST

Costs are based on the time required to deliver the services. For example, a short report identifying potential distributors can be delivered from £500 upwards. A detailed, cohesive, and comprehensive document, on a number of activities in different markets, may cost more than a simple one-page report.
In some cases, the quote may suggest additional costs which you may need to cover, such as venue hire or catering for an event. Costs will be identified and agreed upon in advance before any activity begins.
