At Business Talent Group, we’re continually impressed with the talent in our marketplace—not only for their abilities, but also for their drive to roll up their sleeves and provide hands-on solutions that improve both our clients’ business performance and the lives of their customers. In recent days, we’ve received a number of exceedingly generous offers from talent interested in pitching in with discounted or pro bono consulting services for companies and organizations working on solutions to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and related business problems.

In the interest of supporting critically important and possibly life-saving projects, here we are showcasing talent who have made such offers. We will continue to update this post with new pro bono consulting resources and special offers as we receive them.
