My company has been on a successful growth track for the past few years. We’ve developed digital products, tools, & community to help thousands of women get paid speaking engagements & book deals. Even though we’ve seen exponential growth, it was evident I needed a marketing executive to help develop a strategy for our next phase of growth. As a start-up, we were not yet ready to hire a full-time CMO – but I didn’t want that to limit us from getting the marketing expertise we needed. Since Kristine has become our fractional CMO, we have created a long-term strategy, developed a 3-year product funnel and we have a clear roadmap on how to achieve our growth targets. She has brought senior executive expertise to our organization and yet the fractional relationship allows us to scale the role on our own terms.

When you need fresh talent on your executive team without the commitment of a full-time hire, we got you covered. C-Sweet is the trusted partner you need to enhance your team & build the capabilities of your organization. Think of us as your C-Level executive on retainer. We are there when you need us and not when you don’t.

The average tenure of a CMO is 3.5 years – the lowest of any C-Suite executive. The tenure continues to decline and is at its lowest point in 10 years

Experts estimate the cost of a bad executive hire can range from 5-15xs salary.

The culture effect of a bad hire can result in the loss of up to 5 of your high potential executive talents. This is your future leadership.
