Consulting Between CEO Positions

Updated: Dec 29, 2021

On March 27, 2018, CEOWorld magazine published an article I wrote on  “Consulting Between CEO Positions”

This article was designed for CEOs and other C-Suite, VPs or other senior executives who have achieved a level of success and now find themselves between executive positions and might want to consider doing some consulting before accepting the next full-time job offer.

My article discusses the advantages consulting offers the CEO and other senior executives between positions, including the following:

  • Adding to your knowledge, experience and skill set,

  • Aiding and encouraging you to stay current in your field,

  • Expanding deal flow for new CEO and senior executive positions and business opportunities,

  • Lengthening your financial runway with money coming in so you don’t have to take the first position offered,

  • Enhancing your bargaining position when you find a position you like.

The article also indicates how low cost it is to begin consulting.  At the end, the article offers half a dozen suggested steps to begin and develop a consultancy if you do want to give it a try.

The article concludes with the suggestion that if you do develop a consultancy you may want to keep it around and offers advice on how you can retain the business you created to co-exist with the full-time position after you accept a job offer for your next full time position.

It is my hope that this article will be helpful to CEOs and other senior executives who are in between full-time permanent positions and might want to giving consulting a try during that interim period.  If you or any colleague of yours has a need in this area, please do reach out to me, your executive employment lawyer, at
