for EXPERTS

GENERAL

ExpertConnect Asia is “the industry expert’s knowledge brokerage platform” with focus on growing South-East Asia. We help corporations to make better business decisions by connecting with our vetted industry experts who can share domain knowledge, insights and perspectives in emerging markets.

Our clients include and are not limited to, professionals and business leaders at the world’s leading companies including industrial, technology, and life science corporations; investment and financial firms; professional services firms; start-ups; and non-profits around the world.

Our experts include ex-corporate executives, ex-government agency officers, academia, business managers, sector specialists and more. Typically, they have at least 10 years of proven track record in their subject matter. If you would like to know South East Asia intimately, you can rely on our experts and our platform.

Whenever clients approach us, we serve each of them with a dedicated ExpertConnect Asia representative who will get to understand their needs. We then contact relevant experts whom we believe can serve our client’s best interests and arrange an interview (face to face or phone) with both parties. Upon the successful completion of the project (See successful project under Interview), an honorarium will be paid to the expert for their time.

We continuously grow our membership of experts by recruiting top professionals from around the world for specific project needs. If you have subject-matter expertise and wish to apply to become a member, you can do so on our website.

ExpertConnect Asia is the first company to establish its focus in Southeast Asia and offers the gold standard of our industry. We operate with a deep sense of purpose, and from the belief that connecting professionals with experts puts the world’s knowledge to work in a way that leads to smarter, better outcomes for our clients and our communities. We embody that commitment every day with our rigorous focus on excellence. We are working towards a better business environment and sustainable business ecosystem for all.

PAYMENT

You will be asked to provide your hourly rate upon registration. If you do not have or know your hourly rate, we will be willing to provide suggestions based on your experience, level of expertise and position. The client’s project budget will also be taken into consideration.

All payment will take some time to be processed, and you should expect to receive payment for services rendered at the end of the next month. (E.g. if services are completed on 25th Jan, you should receive payment by Feb 28th). Please note that payment is only given to successful completion of an interview (See successful project under Interview).

INTERVIEW

Topics are dependent on client projects. Whenever a project arises that we believe you can advise on, we will provide more details. Examples of topics include general market research on the specific industry or sector. To streamline this process, please register on our website.

Whenever a client approaches with research needs, we will then contact you with details to participate in a short 1-hour interview. It’s typically done over the phone. However, depending on the client’s needs, face-to-face interviews may also arranged. The interview date and time will be based on both the clients as well as your schedule.

A “Successful” project is a fully completed interview between you and the client. There is a 10-minute buffer at the start of the interview for the client to assess the interviewees ability. Should the expert be unable to answer client queries, the phone interview will end.

If all goes to plan, and the 1-hour interview is completed, an honorarium will be paid based on our payment terms.
