A message from Modwenna at Pitching for Management
Pitching for Management


Dear Reader

Last night I heard from Mike Rhodes of Allerayde that he has just found a COO/FD as a result of working with Pitching for Management. He joins George Frangou of Massive Analytic and Matt Cooksley of Make Positive in achieving recent success from working with us and joins the roll call of companies that have succeeded thanks to making a pitch. See a selection of our STORIES here.

We are now proving repeatedly that Pitching for Management works and we really want to get you involved.

All investors and even debt providers are more concerned with the quality of the management team than with any other single factor in a business. Not just before a funding, but afterwards too. We even help people hand over their businesses to new teams when they are ready. I am very proud that we are effective and that we offer very good value.

Next week we are holding events in SouthamptonBristol and Exeter. Why not come along and see for yourself what we can offer you – if you are a company we can find you the people who will take away the headaches. If you need or want to work in something where you will make a stunning difference – we will reinvigorate your life!

All the other events until Christmas can be found HERE.

Why not try us out? You can call me anytime to chat it through on 07736 676 212 or feel free to email me

Following an afternoon learning how to embark on a Non-Executive Director career, the first cohort of the Executive Transitions Non-Executive Director programme were introduced to six organisations who between them were looking to fill over 20 Non-Executive or Trustee positions.This innovative event, held at the Future Inns Hotel, Bristol on Wednesday 18 April 2012 provided a unique opportunity to bring together experienced executives looking for their first Non-Executive appointment and voluntary organisations with Board vacancies to fill.
Non-Executive Director (NED) positions are increasing in number across sectors, but with a large pool of applicants per position, it is a very competitive marketplace and often you cannot be a NED unless you already are one - so how do you get started?Education, experience and reputation are key to success, but a viable career development strategy is also vital to anyone looking for a NED career.The half-day course runs in conjunction with the Executive Transitions' full-day NED Course, but can also be accessed separately by people wishing to gain new tools in NED career development and marketing.  The course gives an in-depth insight into content marketing, social marketing and media, application processes, job creation, CV building and job sources to help delegates develop a strategy that gives them a sustainable route to market.
The course, delivered by Edward Lobbett (seen in the picture above) is aimed to help delegates:

  • Build their reputation through on and offline content
  • Network more effectively
  • Develop their CV and experiences to make them more attractive as a candidate
  • Assess more effectively the type of NED positions available
  • Understand how to convert contacts into NED roles
  • Develop an overall approach to the NED market
The taught part of the course was followed by an informal NED Careers Fair where representatives from 6 voluntary and not-for-profit organisations were on hand to talk to delegates about the live opportunities that are available.Executive Transitions runs NED courses and careers events on a regular basis - check the course and events pages on our web-site to book your place on the next course or event.
