Consulting services

The Navigator Consulting Group takes a different approach to consulting as opposed to most other consulting companies. The traditional method is where a consultant comes in, works on a short term project, and is soon gone, usually leaving a never-to-be-read report behind.

The Navigator Consulting Group seeks to partner with its clients with a mutually renewable one-year agreement. We do this to ensure the overall health of the client’s company.

They will come in, diagnose the problem, prescribe a solution to the problem, and then work with the client to see the process through step-by-step.

Dr. Charles A. Parrish is the Navigator who can help you, your business, your organization, your industry find the right course, stay on course, and SUCCESSFULLY reach the right goal and destination.
