|What is a WISE-licensed Consultant?|
While many WISE members employ the administrative principles solely within their own business or profession, some want to show others how they too can benefit from this technology in their businesses and professions. These people are called consultants. To become a professional consultant, a WISE member must be licensed by WISE to use L. Ron Hubbards name and the other words and symbols associated with his administrative technology.
WISEs licensing function is critically important for ensuring the integrity of these trademarks and service marks. By licensing only qualified individuals and organizations, WISE helps safeguard against unethical activities. Because of WISEs oversight, the business community can be more assured of both the competence and high ethical standing of anyone offering business services under these marks. They know, for example, that any WISE-licensed consultant has completed a course of study in administrative technology and is skilled in helping others apply it.
WISE itself does no consulting. But individual WISE members who are professional consultants can produce spectacular results when called to help. They have rightly earned a reputation for their ability to resolve situations that others, lacking their know-how, have been unable to crack. For the technology they have at their fingertips can correct even the most difficult organizational problems.
