Event Details

What's an effective response for an entrepreneur facing a pressing, significant challenge for which his firm is short resources and talent? Or for a business founder concluding the latest venture and looking for the next best opportunity in addition to serial entrepreneurship? And in both cases, to have confidence that the performance one needs or can deliver will be appropriately rewarded?

This month will feature an accomplished, longtime practitioner of interim management who founded and leads the global professional association that helps systematize best practices of this emerging executive role. His experience will provide the basis for insightful discussion of considerations on calling upon these specialists, their underlying value proposition, the processes of their assignments, and how entrepreneurs can most effectively accelerate the development of their enterprises.
