What is a global expert network and how do they work?

A global expert network connects clients with highly qualified subject matter experts from across the world in a matter of hours.

Today’s world is changing, whether it's new technology disruption or increasing globalisation. Bain’s new study shows that disruption will continue at the same pace, just in new forms. Businesses need constant information at regular intervals to survive in today’s challenging environment and they do so with the help of global expert networks.

An expert network is a service provider that matches clients with experts who are remunerated for sharing their expert insights through phone or video consultations. This is typically in the form of 1-hour interviews. A global network not only helps in matching but also oversees scheduling the interviews or calls.

Our platform offers unparalleled speed in connecting clients with contributors who have the expertise and knowledge needed to correctly evaluate business initiatives. Check out our How It Works page for more information.

Ways in which a global expert network works 

Generally, the expert network begins with recruiting experts on LinkedIn or other social media platforms. This process is automated by artificial intelligence and then the chosen experts are vetted. You can hire experts either on a short or long-term basis. Contracts can also be arranged on a case-by-case basis i.e. for a certain project or a freelance agreement. If you don’t want to go with a network, you can also choose to work with individual experts. These experts are not associated with a network and set their own rates. 

However, if you do decide to go with an expert network, the process is very straightforward. First, the company determines that they are in need of a global expert network. That is because they either need it for a project or because they want to achieve a competitive edge. Then, they submit a list of requirements to a global expert network that matches them with a relevant expert. These requirements can be their job role or number of years of experience. Finally, the expert network connects the firm with its preferred expert.

In the next section, let's look at some of the advantages of expert networks.
