You should only complete this Consultant Profile Form (CPF) if you are an Accredited Associate, Executive, or Senior Consultant at Appleton Greene and after your application has been completed and verified by the Accredited Consultant Department. If this is the case, then you will have received an authorized email communication from Appleton Greene inviting you to complete the Consultant Profile Form (CPF).
The purpose of this application form is to provide Appleton Greene with the content required for your Accredited Consultant Profile. This profile will be published on the Appleton Greene web site and will be distributed throughout the Appleton Greene global client network. The Consultant Profile constitutes a brief executive profile summary and as such the content that is allowed within this form is purposely limited. You will have an opportunity to provide much more information later on when developing your Accredited Consulting Service (ACS) Client Information Guide.
The application form will only take you approximately 30 minutes to complete . Please complete all parts of this application form without exception.
Please insert your answers in lower case apart from when starting sentences and proper names. Do not use upper case or capital letters where it is not appropriate to do so. Applications will be automatically declined if you do not adhere to this requirement.
Please ensure that your content remains strictly within the designated content limits for each individual section of the Consultant Profile Form (CPF). For example, if a particular section asks you to restrict your content to 2 words and you insert more than this, then our administrative team will either just insert the first 2 words provided, or your form may be declined altogether and you will then need to complete another Consultant Profile Form (CPF).
Please think about your answers carefully when completing your Consultant Profile Form (CPF). Once your Consultant Profile Form (CPF) has been approved by Appleton Greene, it will be published and distributed throughout the Appleton Greene global client network within 30 business days and you will be notified via email when your Consultant Profile has been activated. Once your Consultant Profile Form (CPF) has been approved by Appleton Greene, you will not be able to amend or change this content until a period of 12 calendar months has expired.
Once you have submitted your Consultant Profile Form (CPF) to Appleton Greene it will be scheduled for review by the Accredited Consultant Support Team (ACST). You will be informed whether your Consultant Profile Form (CPF) has been approved via email usually within 10 business days after your proposed start date (not including weekends or public holidays).
Please provide us with a professional photograph that we can upload into your Appleton Greene profile because professional photographs are now compulsory. Inserting a professional photograph does have the effect of personalizing your profile. Photographs must be provided in JPEG format and be of a file size which is 100kb or less. Photographs must also be in Portrait format with a pixel size of (Horizontal = 150 Vertical = 200). Your photograph must be professional and your appearance should be business-like. Casual photographs will not be accepted. You should also ensure that the photograph contains an image of you alone. A passport photograph would be ideal for this purpose, but please make sure that you are smiling. As they say, a picture speaks 1000 words, so please ensure that you look friendly, welcoming and approachable. You can forward this to us as an attachment to your email.
Once your Consultant Profile Form (CPF) has been approved by Appleton Greene, it will be scheduled for publication on the Appleton Greene web site and for distribution throughout the Appleton Greene global client network. This means that your Consultant Profile will be activated at some point during your proposed start month, as long as your Consultant Profile Form (CPF) and your professional photograph have both been received and approved by Appleton Greene on or before your proposed start date. Once again you will be notified via email when your profile has been published and distributed. You will need to allow a period of up to 30 business days for this process (not including weekends or public holidays), because profiles are only activated once each month. Your designated annual membership period will not commence until such a time as you have been notified that your profile has been activated, so you need not worry about this.
Once your Consultant Profile Form (CPF) has been approved by Appleton Greene, you will then be required to complete a separate and more detailed Accredited Consultant Service (ACS) Client Information Guide Form. This form will then provide Appleton Greene with the content required for your (ACS) Client Information Guide. You cannot complete this until your Consultant Profile Form (CPF) has been approved by Appleton Greene and a separate email will therefore be forwarded to you regarding this, providing more information at the appropriate time.
It may also be prudent for you to ensure that you add the email address firstname.lastname@example.org to your safe email user or white list for both the primary and backup email accounts that you have provided within this application form. This will ensure that you receive all Appleton Greene email communications safely, without them being inadvertently diverted to your spam email folder by your internet service provider.
