Ideal Profile

What is an ideal client?

A funded start-up, scale-up or SME. A clear business need – often involving growth, funding, strategy or exit. A lack of experience or expertise in the top team – we provide part-time or interim Director-level people who have all scaled businesses. A lack of external and objective advice – our teams have many NEDs and Chairs.

Who makes an ideal Ambassador?

People in professional services firms such as accountants, lawyers, consultants, bankers etc., who already advise owners or Directors of funded start-ups, scale-ups or SMEs. Professional sales or business development people who already have a portfolio of services and can add part-time/interim Executive or Non-Executive Directors. Internally, Regional Directors and Advisors are often Ambassadors as well.

What is the commitment?

There is no cost commitment, and no time commitment. Many Ambassadors are reactive to opportunities as they come up and just pass them on to us, in which case this take only as much time as it does to have a brief conversation with the prospect and then send us an email. Some Ambassadors are pro-active and approach their own clients or prospects via newsletters, emails, phone etc and this requires a little more time and effort, but can be financially rewarding. A few are dedicated Ambassadors, some just for us, others for more than one company and have a portfolio of services they can introduce.
