GLS Kick-off™

Analysis of the key issues in your project

The Problem

A major deal has come in - you need to know what you don't know.

Related challenges include:

  • going ahead “in the dark” is not an option
  • not knowing the pathway dilutes your ability to negotiate strategically
  • doing research to get up to speed will take time you don't have
  • you do not have much/any capacity and your team is permanently stretched
  • there is limited budget for external support and briefing them is time consuming

You know that the expertise you need is out there but you cannot access it.  Do you really want to rely on Google?

The GLS Solution

GLS Kick-off™ is all about delivering pure "bottled” project insights - the aggregated and collective wisdom of the GLS team leveraged to help you get ready for a new project. 

In terms that are easy to understand and implement, GLS Kick-off™ briefs you and your team on what to expect from your new project.  The insights that are delivered are what you would expect from the most experienced specialist project advisors to help you easily navigate a successful project outcome. 

At a fraction of the cost of Big Law, GLS Kick-off™ removes time and cost as barriers to you accessing detailed, timely and practical project briefings.

Problem solved.
