Our 2018 market research and other studies have concluded that the most effective methods for securing Interim Management and Advisory placements for Independent Professionals are as follows:
- Referrals 27.4%
- Word of mouth 23.8%
- Tapping your network 16.9%. In other words, nearly 70% of new business will come through referrals. (Source: 2012 Freelance Industry Report, Data & Analysis of Freelancer Demographics, Earnings, Habits and Attitudes – Ed Gandia)
CAIM operates with a very strong referral ethos where members refer assignments to other members known to have the skills, sectoral expertise or availability needed by a particular client.
CAIM is keen to develop alliances with other relevant bodies where there are shared interests and the possibilities of greatly expanding networks. The first such alliance was with the Institute of Management Consultants and Advisers (IMCA).
Members of CAIM and the IMCA can each join the other body as an Affiliate Member which entitles the person to attend CPD events held by either body. The subsidised cost of Affliate Membership is €75 per annum.
CAIM will look to develop other alliances into the future.
