#3 UPDATE Employee

Growthink Business Plan Inquiry

AUTHOR: Growthink management - (U.S.A.)

This is a response addressing the aforementioned accusations.

Growthink and Mr. Stokes led the client through a vetting process to evaluate his business opportunity and specific objectives and to determine where Growthink could provide assistance.  During the process, the client sent over his materials for review.  After multiple conversations with the client and a thorough review of his materials, we were able to properly scope out a work engagement for the client to help develop his offering package (business plan) and advise him during his fund raising process. We presented the client with a work proposal but he decided not to move forward.  The client requested that his documents be returned at which time Mr. Stokes promptly sent the package back to the client.  

Unfortunately, in this case, the client's reaction to our proposed work assignment and fee terms was extremely over the top and unprofessional.  We spent quite a bit of time thinking through this potential engagement and allocated resources to work with the client on a preliminary basis.  We added value during our conversations and provided the client with strong advice.  As a good faith gesture and a response to our front end efforts, we ask the client to remove his post immediately.
