An easy-to-use platform

Operator manages your inbound requests for advice, meeting appointments, and calendar invites so you or your team do not have to. You can edit your profile at any time, review meeting requests on the go, and receive calendar invites and video meeting links directly to your inbox.

A customized experience

Each expert creates a profile that includes their work experience, areas of expertise, and meeting rate per hour. Adjust your calendar whenever you want, according to your availability. You’ll have the option to accept or deny meeting requests if your availability changes or if the client's meeting scope is not in line with your area of expertise.

A community that gives back

Operator is all about enriching the world and giving back to the community. You will have the opportunity to help teach and influence individuals and brands, sharing all the knowledge you’ve acquired during your career. Your impact does not stop there. Once meetings are complete experts receive payment via Stripe. All experts can opt-out of being paid directly and instead donate their payment to a good cause.

Expand your network

While Operator was created to democratize access for individuals to meet with executives and to help streamline meeting management, we are also creating a community amongst our Operators. High-level talent can meet new people and communicate in confidence.

I love the idea of a "Fiverr for domain expertise." Sometimes you just want to float ideas or brainstorm outside of your company -- and it makes a ton of sense to build a network for this use case.
