Goodlucklumu saidFunny. Jackbone Tx, I agree with you that its possible I may have overestimating the number of people in the position I asked about. I was of the notion that we have many professionals doing great stuff in this group but the topic as Jerred mentioned was off......Thanks guys.
Jack is right; you were asking specifically for people who were already established and successful in your own specialized profession. Nothing wrong with asking, but it may have been wishful thinking. You may want to lower your expectations a bit and ask more universal questions that pertain to a broader range of experiences if you want a useful response here. Alternatively, you could explain a little more about what it is that you do and/or want to do, since "international consultancy" doesn't really reveal much.
I don't know what you're looking for specifically, but if it's along the lines of social networking and research to bridge the gap between professional communities you know and those you don't, perhaps you could try linkedin.com (if you haven't already)? If nothing else, it might help organize your efforts a little. Just *DON'T* give them your e-mail password; they will try very hard to trick you into doing so!!!
