APDO’s Ask an Expert scheme is available to members and non-members alike. An experienced professional organiser offers support, guidance and expertise and acts as a sounding board. Choose:
- a general call to cover some of the basics of entering the industry or
- a more targeted call on a specific business area you want to develop or discuss
If the topic you’d like to know more about isn’t listed, please let us know and we’ll do our best to locate an expert among our training and mentoring team.
Calls by phone/Skype/Facetime last one hour and are scheduled at times that are mutually convenient. A call can be booked through our contact form.
Mentoring calls (for members) and consultation calls (for non-members) have proved hugely popular and are a real boost wherever you are in your business journey.
- APDO members: £60 inc VAT
- Non-members: £75 inc VAT
“I have always loved organising things and had heard recently that was a whole industry out there doing what I love and getting paid for it. I took the opportunity to have a consultation call with someone from the APDO team and they explained fully what to expect, what kinds of clients used the service and the pros and cons of becoming a Professional Organiser. The best market research I could have done. Money well spent!"
"I had so many ideas going around in my head I was lacking focus. I booked a mentoring call and it was so helpful for me to pick the brains of someone who has worked successfully in the organising industry. I now have the focus and motivation to drive my business forward.”
