      1. A surge in unplanned expenses and additional strain on the operating infrastructure with COVID-19 means companies are trying to do more with less. They are trying to manufacture more cheaply and faster, while increasing overall productivity. If an operations strategy can mean so many things to different people, how does a company decide what to do. In this study for a fictitious company, we follow the steps to help them understand what they could, should, must do to improve their operations and become more competitive. A key part of this study, like all our studies, is preparing for implementation.

What does each proposal contain?

Elite firms can, and usually do, produce simpler proposals. The brand recognition of the firm typically leads to the sale, not because the proposal is unique. Our proposals are different because we have many boutique firm clients who need proposals with distinctive methodologies to differentiate themselves from larger firms. Therefore, where possible, our proposals contain:

  1. A distinctive approach/methodology
  2. Timelines
  3. Suggested pricing/resourcing based on a premium practice in the US

If you are applying for access to SLIDES, please let us know what your top priority releases are from the list above.


The cost for access to SLIDES is $6,500 per year per member for qualified and approved FC Insiders. Selected members must have an active FC Insider status throughout the duration of SLIDES membership to access SLIDES.

This price does not reflect the value and ROI potential. What is the value of securing a seven-figure engagement? What is the value of being promoted ahead of your peers? What is the value of enhancing your firm’s reputation and brand? What is the value of growing your firm versus closing your firm? What is the value of skyrocketing your career versus being counseled to leave as a weak performer?

However, we are trying to make this accessible, specifically for FC Insiders who are based in developing countries.

There will be a 50% discount (Special cases only. Very few discounted spots are possible given the cost we incur to offer this opportunity) for a small number of spots if one of two conditions are met.

CONDITION 1: A 50% discount is applicable for FC Insiders who have participated in FC Insider documentaries.

CONDITION 2: If you have not taken part in FC Insider documentaries (referring to documentaries with Nerses, Daniel, etc. where FC Insiders share how FIRMSconsulting help them in their career), you may qualify for a 50% discount by taking action before the deadline and while spots are available, and provided you have a strong track record of supporting FC. Special cases only. Very few discounted spots are possible given how valuable the intellectual property that is available to SLIDES members.

The pricing for either condition is $3,250 per person / year. Very few discounted spots are available. Only rare cases.

The standard pricing of $6,500 may go up for SLIDES members who will miss this SLIDES intake.

If you need access for your team (at least 5 people), please contact [email protected]firmsconsulting.com for pricing and eligibility information.

Limited Spots

Access to SLIDES is not available for application/purchase year-round. We will be allowing access for new SLIDES members ~2-3 times per year. If you are eligible and miss the launch period, you will be placed on a waitlist and emailed when a new spot becomes available.

We have limited spots for this opportunity for two reasons:

  1. This is our internal knowledge management system, which gives access to slides and tools we have used over the past decade and that we continue to use. We are only admitting our most loyal and most supportive members to access our internal knowledge management system.
  2. It is an expensive system to build, maintain and continue investing in, and our costs depend on many variables, including the number of annual users. This means we will have limited spots available.

Selection Process

SLIDES was created for our hard core most loyal and supportive FC Insiders. Those members know the value of our intellectual property and the potential ROI it offers their careers and organizations, if they put in the work required. First, we are looking for FC Insiders who have a track record of supporting FC via:

  1. Book reviews
  2. iTunes reviews
  3. App reviews
  4. Referrals
  5. Comments on forums
  6. Comments on social media
  7. Purchasing access and books for their teams
  8. Years of continuous membership
  9. FC Insider documentaries

Second, we are looking for FC Insiders with a track record of good intentions and professionalism who are focused not only on building their careers and making money, but on making a positive impact for their organizations and the world through their work. We believe every role allows that opportunity.

Reserving Your Spot

Not an FC Insider? Apply to join here as SLIDES and FC Insider annual member.

Already an FC Insider? Email [email protected] informing us that:

1) You would like to pay to become a member of SLIDES.

2) You have read and accept our terms and conditions.

3) In your email, please include a short, paragraph-long description of how you have supported FC (including links to any activity where you supported FC (eg via reviews) to assist our team in reviewing your application), how you intend to support FC going forward, and how you intend to use SLIDES to help make a bigger positive impact through your work for your organization and beyond.

Payment is required for us to review your application as spots will be allocated quickly, on a first-come-first-served basis. To make the payment please email information above and ask [email protected]com to send you an invoice.

We will try to approve every request from FC Insiders in good standing who have a track record of supporting FC and a track record of good intentions and professionalism.

We will review all applications and inform all approved FC Insiders.

We Want to See Your Success Story

This is a significant step for us to share our powerful intellectual property with some of our most loyal members. But we feel we can do something unique. Think about us spending this amount of money, time and effort each month building out SLIDES. There are much easier ways for us to generate a lot more revenue. The full disclaimer here: we want to see your success story. We want to see what happens for you. We want to show it to a marketplace: if you have the right toolkits, playbooks, templates look what these people can do. And so, we are doing this also as a highlight community. We want to see you become very successful and we want to highlight you and your organization across our platforms. We also want to see you making a meaningful impact for your organization. We want to see this group to grow and succeed even though it makes more sense for us, from revenue generation perspective, to invest in other initiatives like coaching 7 figure CEOs and building out businesses within our private equity portfolio.

What does it take? Hard work, discipline, and showing up. We can’t guarantee your specific results. But we can guarantee that we will show up and deliver. SLIDES offer access to intellectual property that can help you really stand out, to help you grow your career and business. You will have access to advanced strategies to make the next 12 months your year of growth.

Get yourself signed up ASAP. I believe if you can step into this opportunity, this new reality of 2021, get somebody credible who can guide you, get access to full studies, proposals, if you get how huge this moment is you got to have access to SLIDES.

This is going to go fast. We would love to see you in there.

So, apply right now: email [email protected]com.

Kindly note that our standard terms and conditions apply for this new service and continuous access to SLIDES is contingent upon remaining an FC Insider in good standing.
