Recruiting a Commercial Director is a key decision for any business, it can take time to identify the new hire and then sit around whilst they serve their notice period.

This can be frustrating as it leads to delays in implementing plans and moving the business forward.

A high performing Commercial Director’s salary can prove prohibitive for many businesses, those Directors with the best track records are usually heavily rewarded and work within large organisations with numerous benefits.

This can be an issue for smaller businesses who have high aspirations and are looking for the best in business leadership but do not have the budgets or profile to attract this talent.

If your business is in either of these positions, we have flexible outsourced options and a ‘consume what you require’ way to help.

The Consultancy Bureau provide a ‘hands on’ business development service that works alongside the business owner and their team.

In essence we become your Business Development Team, working under your brand.

Our flexible model enables businesses to hire our services for as long as required to support and lead businesses of all sizes in various disciplines from direct sales to e-commerce, marketing, strategy, process and more.

Typically our contracts are for 1 or 2 days a week for a period of 6-12 months. 

We also offer corporate interim leadership to manage complex key projects, sales drives or cover for maternity and employment gaps. Contact us today to discuss your business leadership requirements.

Lawrie Procter, Managing Director of Mediaforce

I had the immense pleasure of working with Tony for almost ten years through a period of unprecedented change for the publishing industry. Tony’s incredible ability to bring together, motivate and lead teams to achieve the company’s objectives is second to none. Tony restructured the sales teams and product offering, converting the sales effort to a structured series sold solutions-based presentation including a myriad of digital solutions. These changes dramatically increased pre-booked revenues enabling the business to be managed in a structured way, leading to a prolonged period of success for the business.
