Consultant Profile - The Intota expert network is divided into four broad categories. The first category consists of professors, scientists, physicians, and researchers from academic institutions, national labs, and research facilities in North America and Europe. The second category includes top retired professionals from a wide variety of technical and business disciplines. In the third category, there are experts currently practicing medicine or currently employed in industry with an authorization from their employer, if necessary, to participate in the expert network. The last category consists of independent and experienced consultants in a wide variety of technical, scientific, medical, and business disciplines. Experts typically have advanced academic degrees and twenty or more years of practical experience in their area of expertise. Many have patents and publications in their name, and have consulted on their own for many years.
How It Works -Clients submit an expert request via an online form or search a directory of experts. Once the expert(s) have been identified, the network schedules a free conversation so client and expert can evaluate the opportunity to work together. If both the client and expert agree, an agreement documenting the arrangements is signed, and they begin working together.
