Interim Development Taster Session

Last month VMA GROUP hosted our very first Interim Development Programme Taster Session, alongside highly experienced interim CMO David Moore.

David provides guidance and counsel to senior marketers seeking to develop a similar interim career. Having been an interim CMO and Marketing Director for 18 years, delivering across a diverse number of sectors, David developed his Interim Development Programme; a one-to-one personalised programme providing advice to those wishing to develop their interim proposition.

It was a dry Thursday morning, and a room full of top tier talented CMOs and marketing leaders gathered at our London office in Holborn, keen to learn, network with likeminded individuals, and develop their interim proposition.

Across a 90 minute session, David shared his wealth of knowledge and expertise with those considering committing to the path or contracting, interim or a fractional career.

What was covered at this event?

  • Analysis of the Interim Sector

  • Day Rate calculations and IR35 implications

  • Drafting a compelling Interim Proposition

  • Developing your Personal Brand

  • CV structure and drafting for Interim Sector

  • Set up requirements for Interims

  • The role of LinkedIn

  • Creating a partnership with an Interim Service Provider (ISP)

The feedback from all was extremely positive!

“David gave great direction and raised so many points I hadn’t previously considered, especially the importance of marketing myself effectively. It was a wonderful morning of soaking up knowledge!”

Another marketing leader expressed how comforting it was to meet other talented leaders with a thirst for personal development, yet who were in a similar quandary and looking for direction of how to do so.

“It has been great connecting, not only with David (who I’m meeting next week for a 1-on-1!), but also the other CMOs who are looking to develop their interim proposition. The methodology David walked us through has given me the foundations to put my best foot forward. It was so refreshing to receive such expert advice and connect with some sensational people – thank you VMA GROUP!”

We were delighted to have David join us and share his guidance to those looking to explore the interim world, setting them well on their way to secure their next contract.

We are excited to be hosting the next sessions of our Interim Development Taster Session on Thursday 30th May, and Thursday 6th June.
Be sure to keep an eye out on our website and LinkedIn for more information, coming soon!
