Our experience and motives
• building relationships with colleagues and potential partners, requires a structure such as a specific platform. Most networks are too extensive, not sufficiently specific or customer-unfriendly.
• collaborations start with helping others, sharing and finding joint business opportunities. In short; it is investing in relationships, but unfortunately most networks primary act in terms of “what is now in for me”, remain impersonal and lose attention in the follow-up.
• a professional, global network / platform for independent / self-employed consultants focusing on specific services are rarely available. Possibly because often such an initiative lacks a purely commercial basis.
All things considered and assuming that our respected customers would be better served with a global network of BD professionals and to counterbalance the large consultancy firms, we are making day by day the investment in GBDA.
We emphatically state, GBDA is not a franchise nor a MLM, but a private initiative and we provide like-minded independent consultants with a similar approach in profession and entrepreneurship an ability to connect with one another.
