I'm the author of The Super Searchers on Wall Street and contribute to Searcher Magazine and other information industry publications. I developed a one-on-one email-based training, The Mentor Program, for business researchers in corporations and independent research professionals who are starting or wishing to expand their research businesses.
My goal is to team up with other CI specialists who require training or assistance in the development of strategic information.
