Dulles Board pay 'change' guru $173K

Posted By Michael A. Gallo, Monday, June 18, 2012


From today's Washington Examiner.

"The airports authority in charge of the $6 billion Dulles Rail project paid an expert on "change" about $7,000 an hour to lead authority members' discussions at annual board retreats, theWashington Examiner has learned."  

See full article:http://washingtonexaminer.com/local/transportation/2012/06/dulles-board-pays-change-guru-173k/736271

The article describes how Airport Authority paid $173K over a three year period for consultant support at board retreats.  The article's author calculated that the consultant was paid an average of $7,000 per hour.  I suspect that the consultant put more hours in both pre-retreat preparation and post-retreat follow ups, so I think it's a bit unfair to compute the consultant's rate based only on the hours expended to conduct these retreats.  But hey, it's nice work if you can get it (and your client values your work!)
