Gerson Lehrman Group (GLG), Vista Research and six or so other companies have assembled communities of experts across all industries that anyone (GLG originally targeted hedge funds) can pay to call to discuss market outlook, receive due diligence, etc. An interesting adjacent business model from Techdirt leverages bloggers as experts. GLG has around 150K experts and 600+ clients. LinkedIn has around 8.5 million members and has recently launched a low price point competitor to these expert community incumbents.

I would be cagey about discussing anything about my former employers on a commercial arrangement.

From a business ethics standpoint it sucks.

Its dicey ground. They may well want to know specific strategic initiatives - it reeks of competitive analysis - and I wouldn't do it. Too much risk.
