Big Oak works on a retainer basis with a small, select portfolio of professional services firms to help them in a variety of ways with their Go to Market strategy and execution. This arrangement allows me the professional flexibility to act as a strategic advisor to Portland business leaders when they’re reaching outside their organization for various resources in operational areas like finance, IT, supply chain, HR, and procurement. I’ve worked in professional services in Portland for 20 years, and know the business community in those functional areas well. This allows me to give my longtime end clients the best counsel I can about the resources available to them, both inside and outside my portfolio of client partners, and to do so on a cost-free basis.
