Connect with outstanding expertise, focused on your business.
Delivering an uplift in business performance involves multiple skills and solutions. Whether it's insight to help shape your thinking, additional consulting and delivery skills to help design and implement new systems and ways of working, or simply a brief talk with a peer who's already been on a similar journey.
The HiveMind Network was born out of the recognition that many of the very best people no longer want to work for the old-school professional services firms. Instead they're setting up entrepreneurial small firms and becoming independent experts. Our goal in creating the HiveMind Network was to be able to bring this collective ability and entrepreneurial flair to your own business, as and when you need it.
Outstanding talent, working together to support you and your team, at a fraction of the cost of traditional consulting companies and with continuity, flexibility and quality assurance that the recruitment/resourcing firms simply aren't structured to provide.
This is what you're tapping into as as a client of the HiveMind Network.
Join, contribute and call upon our Communities of Excellence - our "Guilds"
Guilds are the HiveMind Communities of Excellence from which our members draw talent, insight and experience. The guilds work as guardians and promoters of our knowledge, expertise, standards and shared collateral. They ensure clients and delivery experts can be confident in our commitment to quality and professionalism.
Delivery experts and micro-firms wishing to offer services as part of a Guild must evidence their abilities, have outstanding client references, be interested in furthering the professionalism and reputation of the guild and above all else share our values.

How can I be assured that my information remains confidential?
If as a client you choose to post a requirement this is done via a secure data entry form and only distributed to the nominated guild champions, if you require additional further confidentiality you can also create a blind requirement brief where no client identifiable information is entered. HiveMind will never show your company information without you specifying this as allowable in the requirement brief. As a further precautionary measure, you can list the requirement as "private; for nominated invitees only". This ensures that only delivery experts who are invited to review the requirement have access to it.
It's also important to note, that as part of our Terms of Service, delivery experts are bound to not disclose confidential information.
