Ask the Expert

Ask The Expert™ is a service that enables senior executives access to industry experts on short notice to answer specific questions. Performed via telephone conference call, a senior executive and his team simply can request a date and time to speak to one of TriMark's subject matter experts (see below) and be billed by the hour. No contracts. No subscriptions. Just answers to specific questions fast and accurately by world-class experts on a pay-as-you-talk basis.

Ask The Expert™ works like this:

  • Identify in the email reservation form (link below) which Expert you wish to have a telephone conference call with.
  • Specify what your main questions will be for The Expert.
  • Indicate the date and time you wish to have telephone conference call.

Upon receipt of your reservation request, a TriMark representative will contact you to: 1) confirm The Expert's availability, 2) obtain your credit card information, and 3) provide you with the call-in access number and password code.

Billing is at a flat-rate of $450 per hour for one person to speak with The Expert. If more than one person will be on the telephone conference call, each additional individual is billed at $100 per hour. For example, if three senior executives are on the call with The Expert for two hours, the cost is $1,300 (i.e., the first person at $450 per hour + two additional people at $100 per hour x two hours speaking to The Expert).

There's a minimum of one hour of The Expert's time. If the call exceeds the allotted first hour, half-hour increments are charged. All calls will be billed based upon the call's entire duration (including wait times) and recorded on MP3s (unless specified otherwise by the customer). MP3 files of the call will be made available to the customer the following day. Cancellations will result in a one-hour assessment fee of $450.
