Pitching a Project with a Senior Advisor

Partnering with an Expert to Pitch and Execute New Business


A project team from a consulting firm was bidding for a project in the citrus oils space in Brazil. They were pitching a project to evaluate the client’s opportunities and risks of expanding further into the value chain. They needed a subject-matter expert in citrus flavors and fragrances to bolster their project team.

The GLG Approach

GLG sourced the former VP of global strategic development at an international fragrance company to partner with them as a senior advisor. The expert agreed to include their bio in the team’s pitch, and the firm won the project.

Once the project was awarded, the expert continued to advise, helping the client better understand the dynamics of the market, the main players, CAPEX and cost drivers, and tech and skill requirements.


The expert partnered with the client for more than 30 hours during the three-month project. Drawing from the expert’s experience, the project team applied the insight they gained to validate their findings and provide high-quality recommendations to their client.
