Do you enjoy variety, a new challenge and making change happen?

Then life as an independent executive may be just what you are looking for. These roles suit the type of person who likes challenge and variety, enjoys delivering high-impact change and then moving on, or the type of person who gets easily ‘bored’ of managing steady state.

If this resonates with you, then a career as an independent executive could be a great choice. It offers variety and challenge as well as being financially rewarding and gives you greater control over your work/life balance.

Demand for independent executives is at its peak during times of change and turmoil. The current Covid-19 climate and 2021 predictions indicate slow economic recovery in the UK, which may not pick-up until 2022/23. In parallel, the predictions for the future of work indicate an increased demand for independent expertise. These two factors point to a speedier recovery and rising demand in the market for independent executives.

This webinar will help you decide if the career path as an independent executive is right for you and what you will need to do to succeed.

The webinar will cover:

  • Likely work trends and skillsets required in 2021
  • What the life of an independent executive is REALLY like and the qualities of those who are successful
  • Where clients need help and the interventions they need from you
  • The process of delivering results at speed
  • Where to start in creating a powerful personal brand
  • How to win work and grab the attention of potential clients and interim providers/agencies
