How did you come up with the name Tribe Twenty?

We are glad you asked. The name came to us about ten years ago when we first came across a research paper that stated 80% of people were disengaged with what they were doing for work. So, only 20% spend their days truly engaged and energized by what they do. Our aim with Tribe Twenty was always to create a community or ‘tribe’ of the ‘twenties’ - a tribe who are all engaged and energized by what they do.

 

Do you work with existing businesses or startups?

Both. We are really interested in helping all businesses that do not otherwise have access to the senior level support we can provide. Small Business and Startups have their own unique challenges and we have extensive experience  working with both.

 

I need financial and legal advice, can you help?

Although we offer a broad range of areas we are able to advise on, we are not qualified lawyers or accountants. We encourage you to always consult your legal and financial advisors for that type of advice.

We provide guidance, education and consultancy all of which is as accurate and up to date as possible. We cannot be held liable for how you choose to use this information. Need to paraphrase this.

 

What sets you apart from other business advisors/strategists/consultants?

To put it simply, it comes down to time. Whilst most consultants and coaches charge for their time, we have chosen a model where time never gets mentioned. We have long held the view that pricing on the value that you provide is a much smarter way to price that by the time you spend. Work smarter, not harder. In a changing world where everyone is trying to figure out how to gain balance, the time based pricing model becomes less relevant. The only way to make that work is to continue to increase hourly rates which is just not sustainable as most businesses cannot afford the rates.

We find that small businesses and startups have lots of questions, need lots of support or second opinions, advice and guidance. These companies are agile and need that support on demand. We chose to work in a way that allowed these small business and startups to ask the questions when they arise, not wait until they have an hours worth of things to discuss or until their monthly appointment comes up. We provide advice, guidance, education and support when you need it..

 

What are your payment terms?

Our membership is a yearly fee, paid at the time of membership commencement.

Our online courses are paid at the time of purchase. Our workshops and consulting services are split payments of 50% prior to commencement and 50% within 7 days of completion.

These payment terms were developed to keep things simple and manageable for us as well as our members and clients. If you are really interested in working with us but would prefer to discuss the payment term we are happy to have a chat to see how we can accommodate you.

 

What if I don’t want to work online with you?

We do more traditional consulting for those that prefer face to face work. We are based in Melbourne, Australia but happy to travel to you depending the consulting project. All consulting work is custom quoted so get in touch and we can have a chat about your requirements. Any member of Tribe Twenty is also eligible for a 20% discount on consulting services so it is quite common that members will also engage us to more in depth work with them and their or businesses.
