Anyone work with expert networks before as an “expert” (e.g. GLG, AlphaSights)? Would also like to understand the experience of people who’ve used these “experts”

I’ve used them before in consulting and in my time as an intern for a medical device company. What do you want to know?

OP, I use them extensively. They give you a list of names with bios and you can choose who is the best fit to interview. Find it helpful everytime

Some experts were really great, some were quite disappointing. We still work with those companies on a few cases and I typically find their insights useful.

I use them all the time. They’re usually very helpful especially in trying to get an understanding of an industry or product that we don’t know much about. For good quality experts you have to know who you’re looking for, what type of title is most helpful for you. the networks can also send the expert screener questions to help you figure out if they’re good fit (for example asking about their familiarity with product/company/whatever you need them to be expert on)

Whether it’s worth it or not depends. If it’s relatively easy to find experts in the field we’re looking for we use LinkedIn and compensate the expert with gift card which is 5th of the cost through the expert networks (there have been times where the experts I found on LinkedIn were provided to me by the networks) I would say biggest benefit is the time saved, they do the scheduling and the looking you just have to read through a profile and say yes or no

Let me share a counter opinion here. I use expert networks fairly frequently for commercial work. Many of them can be great, but there are a few that will be duds. You may not always get 100% value for 100% time, so I would recommend doing at least 2-3 on even the smallest project

I actually did my first gig as an “expert” last week so I’m trying to better understand what companies are looking for. I found it odd that I was selected given I only had 1 YOE in the space they wanted to discuss however I was still able to provide insights. Would also be interested in hearing perspectives on what to charge
