Create a profile

Sign up

It all starts with just signing up. You will receive an email after registering for an account that will take you to the next step.

Set up your profile

Answer a couple questions about your organization. This will help Kingdom Consults (KCs) connect with you. And you can always come back and update your profile as needed.

Browse the catalog

Once your profile is set up, you can immediately access the Switchboard catalog of topics for conversations with Kingdom Consultants. Begin browsing to find the help you need.

Request a conversation

When you've found the topic you want to discuss, you can submit a one-off request or create an ongoing virtual role.  The connection request will be sent to multiple KCs who have made their expertise available on the requested topics. The Switchboard system will match you with the first available KC to help you.

KC & GCO Introduction

Both the KC and GCO are sent an email so they can coordinate how they want to have the conversation.

Connect for a conversation

You and the KC have a one-hour conversation focused on the topic you requested you move the mission forward together. If it's a virtual role, you can choose to continue working with the KC on an ongoing basis.

Continue making an impact

After the conversation, the KC and GCO receive a survey to provide feedback to help Switchboard continue hosting impactful conversations.

After you initial conversation, you can choose to stay connected with the KC. It's up to you and them.

The journey continues as you can come back and request as many conversations as you need.

Conversations

Provide expertise in an initial short connection to help GCOs move the mission forward. Conversations are currently available in several categories.

Looking for a topic we don't currently have?

We will update the catalog in two primary ways:

1. Wider breadth of categories

As we hear needs from Great Commission Organizations, we will add new categories that will contain various specialties.

2. Deeper stock of specialties

As we hear from our Kingdom Consultant community, we will expand the specialties offered in each category to better represent the value they can bring to the Great Commission.

Help us grow the catalog.

If you have ideas for categories or specialties, please share them. We want to hear from you as we grow the platform.

Your message has been submitted.
We will get back to you within 24-48 hours.

FAQ's

Everything you need to know about connecting for conversations.

Can I seek multiple consultants for different aspects of my organization?

Absolutely. Here's how we suggest you make the most out of Switchboard.

Connect with Kingdom Consultants to help your mission, your organization, or you/your family.
Our KCs are gifted in all sorts of areas, meaning that they can directly support the activities of your organization, help you run a more effective organization, or even help you and your family directly. Check out this article to learn more about how our KCs can provide three-fold empowerment to those serving the Great Commission.

Create multiple requests at a timeWe don't limit the number of requests you can create. Go ahead and create a request for some marketing help, some business coaching help, and some website design help. We can start recruiting and help you assemble a team in no time!

What happens if a matched Kingdom Consultant is not suitable for my needs?

First, let us know at your earliest convenience. The easiest way to do so is to send a message to concierge@globalswitchboard.io. Our concierge is copied on all of the connections we make via email, so you should always be one click away from our concierge.

Is there a fee for using the platform's matching service?

Switchboard is completely free for all Great Commission organizations using our platform.

How long does it usually take to get matched with a Kingdom Consultant?

At present, it currently takes an average of 45min to get connected to a Kingdom Consultant after creating your initial one-hour consultation request. For virtual roles it can take longer to find the right fit for your role.

Can we browse the catalog without creating a profile?

Yes! You can check out the catalog on our website to learn more about the kinds of connections you can create on the platform.

I work in a “Restricted Access” country and have security concerns. How does Switchboard handle this?

If your organization works in a high risk or sensitive context. Please consult your organization’s cybersecurity department about using online services and communicating with other users on Switchboard.

You can also review Switchboard's security recommendations for GCOs.

Is my personal information secure when I create a profile?

All user information is stored in encrypted databases & transferred using encrypted internet protocols.

Does the organization or individuals make requests on Switchboard?

It can be either. When an organization is large, we find the greatest impact often comes from supporting those in the field. But the experience and skills available at Switchboard are also very applicable to those leading in organizational roles.

Can you help me identify the roles I need help with?

During the registration process, you will see questions to help  you assess what roles you may need.

If you're still not sure you can schedule a conversation with an operator who will walk you through a discovery session to explore where you can find the most help.

Can a conversation become a project?

Many times a simple conversation or task reveals a broader issue that requires more time.

Sometimes the KC from the initial conversation is able to work on the resulting project. But other times, they may not have the time or expertise needed. 

But don't worry. All you need to do is make another more specific request now that you know more clearly what you need.

How does the scheduling work?

You will initially direct messages through the Switchboard, where the communication will evolve into possible emails or texts.

Once connected, you can coordinate schedules and communication methods.

Can I request multiple conversations at a time?

You may request several conversations at the same time, but a better question may be, how many KCs can you juggle at a time?

We suggest starting with big things first, those priorities with the greatest impact on your day and/or organization, slowly increasing your bandwidth.

Remember, you can return to the Switchboard at any time to submit additional requests and make additional connections.

We're in it with you for the long haul.

What if I need more than an hour?

The conversation is just the beginning. Many requests can be solved within the hour. Others, not so much.

If there is more work to be done, finish the conversation by identifying the next steps.

At the end of the conversation, the GCO and the KC may mutually decide to continue the connection with a follow-up or a project if more help is needed, but this should not be an expectation.

What is a conversation?

It's just a one-hour conversation around a specific topic. It could be done through a video conferencing tool, WhatsApp, or any number of other ways to connect.

This initial connection between the GCO and the KC is not necessarily to solve all the issues. Just make a connection first and discuss the topic or task at hand. If that task can be solved or a resolution plan layout within the hour, great.

At the end of the conversation, the GCO and the KC may mutually decide to continue the connection with a follow-up or a project if more help is needed.
