Gerson Lehrman Group (GLG) is a large platform connecting professionals with expertise in many sectors (including medicine and surgery) with their clients which include businesses and nonprofits in the industrial, technology, life science, investment and financial fields.
Currently, professionals such as physicians sign up to be “council members”. Council members include over 650,000 professionals from many fields including former C-suite executives, academics, scientists, policy specialists, former public sector leaders, and subject-matter experts on almost any topic.
Registered council members are offered to participate in consultations that are tailored to GLG’s clients’ specific needs, ranging from phone calls with experts to live roundtables, to
surveys and quantitative insights, to packaged insights and reports. Council members can set their own hourly rates for consultation (usually between $100-$200 per hour), although some consulting offers come with set compensation (e.g. $500 for an in-person consultation, $50 to fill in a survey in your area of expertise, etc.)
