Dialogue - our interim conversation grows
I am pleased to see we are getting some excellent engagement with our blogs. We are having some great debates with our clients and interim managers so would like to thank all of those that have been involved. Please continue to support the blog because we are really interested in your views and want to hear from you. Whilst we deliberately write our blogs from a certain viewpoint – to encourage response and have some lively debate we certainly don’t want to offend. I look forward to hearing from you!
We have not had as much traction with our IP Community Forum. We set this up to allow our interim managers the opportunity to post questions and receive answers from other interims. Candidates can post questions in the two boxes on the candidate home page. This is accessed with your profile details when you log in. One box is to ask us a question the other is to ask the interim community. Currently most of the questions we have received are asked privately to us and not our community. Therefore I am interested to hear some feedback from you. Is this part of our website a good idea? Is it unnecessary as you can post questions to interims on other sites such as LinkedIn? Should we continue with only the “ask us” part as this seems to be working. Is it a case that we have not promoted it enough? If you would like to pose a question to another interim please visit the IP Community Forum page. If you have any views on our site please share them with me.
We are also pleased to see interim managers engage in other industry blogs- sharing their views and promoting interim management. I am convinced social media will change how we network, identify new clients and engage with more interim managers. However building direct relationships will also be at the centre of what we do. If you are an interim manager and are new to our business please visit our meet the team page and identify one of my colleagues who works within a sector that best describes or is related to your experience. Give them a call or arrange to meet them. If you are a potential client and would like to hear how interim managers may help your organisation please contact me.
