To drive growth you need people with the proven Sales and Marketing expertise. But they are hard to find, usually expensive and there’s a question mark over how they’ll fit into your business. The cost of rectifying hiring mistakes can be high and extremely disruptive.

That’s why more organisations hire interim experts to supplement a team or to build capabilities a business doesn’t have.

it’s not about filling gaps, it’s about buying expertise to drive growth.
