I received a call from someone today who is looking for
a consultant to come in and tell them how to improve their
layout and writing, but not do it. "Them" in this case
is a group of PhD chemists and engineers, so the consultant
needs to know how to handle this type with tact and authority.
So far, I've thought of Comtech as a possibility. Any
More background: The organization performs consulting of
risk analysis for the petroleum industry. My contact did
not provide a budget range. He envisions the consulting to
be short term. They are located in Oklahoma.
