I appreciate the feedback so far- thanks! I am sure is a stringent approval process and evaluations of prospective consultants may be reviewed by one group and if it satisfies their criteria, then I`m sure it gets handed to a team for financial approval. I may also mention that I do have a very good relationship with my former HR manager (low level) and maybe I should exploit that before attempting another strategy.
Thanks again and I appreciate your suggestions!
I am trying to market a service (in a consultant capacity) to my former employer. Although I worked for the company for over 12 years, I was non management and had very few contacts in mid or upper management. This is a huge company with many layers of management and they have gone through many mergers resulting in many "shifts" in personnel. Although I have the CEO`s email address and physical address, I am not sure if it would be appropriate to contact him. The CEO is a lawyer and I did work with the legal department from time to time so I don`t know if that would be of value as an icebreaker of introduction..
I truly appreciate any suggestions or advice. Thanks!
