Also the maximum time we will wait will be 15 minutes in case you haven't arrived yet. We do not offer reimbursement for cancelations or arriving late to our meeting or technical issues due lack of experience in using skype, MSN or collaborative software or deficient broadband capacity from your connection point (please avoid using wireless connection as the sound emission/reception could deliver bad quality). We use landline high capacity broadband for deliverying distance learning training therefore we are enable to use skype, MSN and collaborative software with an excellent sound quality. We use only sound and not video. Remember that you are paying for a defined slot of time with a specific limit for starting and ending. It is under your responsibility to arrive on time and know how to use the software for delivery of consulting services if you want to make full use of the consulting services time you have contracted. We are very strict on this aspect as we might have other immediate appointments following the meeting we have with you. It is under our discretion to continue our meeting 5 minutes more beyond the end of your slot time in case we consider necesary and if we don't have immediate appointments with other customer.

8.We might ask you more details of your needs in case your description of needs is not very clear when you requested the consulting service. Therefore is very important that you provide a good description beforehand our meeting so we can focus on answering your questions instead of asking you for more details of your business or needs during consulting time. Remember that if you have new questions you can raise them during our consulting time. We will try to answer them as clear as possible within the time limit. In case we consider that further time is needed to answer your new questions, we will let you know so you can contract additional time in another date.

Things to do before the "food startup advice" or "catering business ideas" consultancy service meeting

Please verify and test in advance before our meeting that your microphone and speakers are working properly. Check that you are connected from a landline point and not wireless. We cannot provide advice on technical matters related to software or hardware used during the session. We expect you have a good quality broadband connection and that you know how to use skype and MSN. In case we use our collaborative software to share or show documents, we will provide you with a self-learning quick tutorial before our meeting, so you can practice and learn how to use some of the features we will need with enough time before starting our meeting.

How the consulting service meeting is organised?

We will startup describing your problem (for example, your food business idea or catering business ideas )as we understand it according to the description you provided us in advance. Also, you can contract the service for providing you with a plan of activities, timing and budget of future activities needed. Please let us know if you require us to sign a confidentiality agreement if you would like us to see your recipes. production process or formulae.

After your confirmation that our understanding of your needs and/or plan of activities is correct, then we will proceed to clarify or answer your main question and subquestions. Also we might add additional information we consider is relevant for you either explaining it or showing power point slides or documents (if we are using our collaborative software). Also we might add additional information into the chat or during our visit to your premises if we consider necessary to clarify details.

During our session we will ask you to confirm that our explanation is clear and you understand the information we are providing you. In case there are doubts, we will provide and explain further examples and clarify your specific doubts within the time limit of your slot. In case more time is needed to clarify further specific question, we will advise you to contract another slot for a different date. Unfortunately because each case is different we cannot advise on the time you will need for receiving the information you need, however, the plan of activities give us a closer approximation. A good starting point is purchasing 30 minutes and try our services, for example "Providing me with Plan of activities and Outcomes before technical consultancy (before contracting other consultancy services)". If you consider our consulting service is relevant and is within your budget, then you can buy additional time so we can complete the plan of activities.
