Your business is growing or flat or worse, losing market share and it’s time to bring in more experienced people to help you keep it in the road to growth, but, you just don’t have the money or time to invest in finding the right people. Someone recommended hiring an interim or fractional executive; however, you’re not sure how to go about it? How do you find the right person? What are the steps you can take to making that decision?

Kristen McAlister, President of Cerius Executives, Joins me, your host and fractional CMO Angelo Ponzi for an in-depth discussion on when to hire a fractional or interim executive vs a full-time person and the steps you need to take to ensure you’re putting the right person on the bus!

We’ll explore influences, barriers, challenges, and opportunities with experts from a wide variety of disciplines that can, directly and indirectly, impact your growth strategies and offer insights and actionable steps you can incorporate into your business.
