Senior Leadership Support FAQs

What is senior leadership support?

At Firestarter, we treat senior leadership support as any combination of services necessary to support either an individual business leader or an entire senior leadership team in the achievement of their organisation’s sales objectives. We provide senior-level sales, marketing and business development experts to identify what needs to happen in order to create more sales, and then work directly with senior leaders to make it happen.

How do you deliver senior leadership support to businesses?

While every project is different, we typically work with clients for a period of at least six months. You will have access to a team of senior-level experts in in sales, marketing and business development for the duration of the project, with activity usually delivered as a blend of in-person and online, subject to your specific needs.

Do you provide senior leadership support in-person or online?

Both – while much of our work can be completed remotely, there are often times when in-person sessions deliver additional value throughout the project. We will advise on how we see our support being best delivered in your specific case at the proposal stage – please contact us if you’d like to learn more.

Will your senior leadership support help my business grow?

Our senior leadership interventions are based on one of the central components of our approach – we always start by asking what must happen in your business to create more sales and achieve your growth plans, and we are extremely experienced at rapidly identifying the challenges that need to be overcome and what work needs to be done in order to make this a reality. We do this by removing the internal dependency on business leaders, and by getting stuck in and working directly with you and your existing team.
