The New Idea
Through his Asesores para el Avance Social (Consultants for Social Progress), Juan Gerardo provides small citizen's social organizations a broad range of assistance to enable them to face the current reforms of the country's economic and political structure. His teams of consultants offer: analysis, evaluation, technical training at various staff and management levels and strategic planning. To avoid dependency Gerardo generally will not offer his services to a client for longer than three years.Although Gerardo's group is headquartered in Mexico City, it relies heavily on a growing body of 29 associates who live and work in many of the country's states. These associates are highly respected professionals in their respective areas: biology, economics, accounting, business administration, etc. The group then calls on the associates as need and opportunity arises.
