Consultancy & Research

Fees vary with the nature of the work. Our consultancy rates vary from £250 to £400 per day depending on the client and the length of the contract. Charitable organisations and projects may be quoted lower fees.

Research projects that may take some months to complete are charged according to an agreed results programme, not on a daily rate.

We operate on a self-employed basis, though will consider other arrangements where appropriate.

We normally operate on commercial terms though we do undertake some voluntary work where appropriate.

Media

Fees vary with the nature of the work. Writing projects are charged as appropriate to the publication and its circulation/readership, whether printed or online media.

Photographs are available at commercial rates. Charitable organisations and projects may be quoted lower fees. Photos are usually sold for one-time use only and may not be re-used without permission.

Website fees vary according to client and requirements. Please contact us for details.

Media appearances

Jonathan is usually happy to be interviewed and to help/contribute to media events, projects and programmes, though we do request reasonable notice - asking for an interview 'tomorrow' is not usually practical!

We expect a fee when there is significant contribution and advice.

Reimbursement of expenses (travel and subsistence) is always expected where appropriate.

For talks we have rates varying from £100 to £300 plus expenses, depending on the client and venue. Charitable organisations and projects may be quoted lower fees.
