Thanks for the positive feedback Mark, but you would get much more if you paid for this advice.
For $10,000, each member of your board of directors would get a 95 cent presentation folder with the proposal printed on high quality paper, the consultant's secretary would have read the proposal for grammatical errors and it would have been spell checked at least twice.
For $100,000, the consultant and the secretary would attend several of your board meetings, they would each be dressed in very expensive clothes and they would make the members of your board feel very good about themselves. ; )
