Pampering chef consultant costs are on the rise, as a number of companies are charging a consultancy fee for “cultural specialists” training.
A study by the consulting company Blackstone found that fees for cultural specialists training had increased from around $1,500 to more than $1 million, and it says the fees are often “outrageously high”.
“It’s not just for consultants, it’s a whole range of consultants who are trying to do the same thing,” Dr Tim McBride, head of consulting at Blackstone, told ABC Radio New Zealand.
The fees vary from $1.25 million to more $3 million.”
It’s a lot of people who can’t do anything but come and get a bit paid.”
The fees vary from $1.25 million to more $3 million.
Dr McBride said the consultancy fee was usually used to “cover the cost of an interpreter”.
“If you’re doing the translation, the interpreter can make it into $2,000 to $3,000, that’s an extra $1 to $2 million,” he said.
The study said the fees for consultants training varied from $500 to $1m.
The consultants’ training costs include:• $500 or more for interpreters• $1-1.5 million for an interpreter training program• $250,000 for a consultant-led training programFor more information about the study, visit the ABC’s website.
