TorqAid offers services in three main areas of Global Development, namely consultancy, training, and resources. In focusing in on consultancy, the main difference between advisory work and consultancy per se, is that the former is largely built around an ongoing relationship with the client in question, whilst consultancy is more about ‘one-off’ contracts with individual clients. Mentoring is much more of an ongoing one-to-one relationship with the Global Development Practitioner (GDP) in question.
