When asked why she chose to go into business independently, Sharon commented, “In the middle of the Global Financial Crisis, I was offered the opportunity to assist a Consulting Company with strategic growth. I started as a Business Development Manager (BDM), and soon took on the challenge from a General Management perspective, leading the company end to end in NSW. Impacting all areas of the business, the team achieved 55% growth in the first 12 months – well above expectations.
If all elements of your strategy, culture and process are aligned and optimised, then hiring BDM’s to take your story to the market is a great option. In my experience however, this is not always the case. I see a growing need in the IT Consulting community for overall business transformation."
