Have you ever wished that you could tap into that resource whenever you wanted to for as long as you liked - but only pay by the day?
Perhaps you need someone with a wide skill-base and experience in marketing to know what to do to to grow your business, and then to take it off your hands and run it a couple of days a month so you can concentrate on what you re good at?
Many companies, at every stage of their development, regularly need the commercial skills of a seasoned Director-level executive to drive a new or special venture.
However, and this is the Catch 22, the inherent risk in a new venture means that recruitment could be costly or the company simply cannot afford someone at this level full time. Perhaps you need to test and prove the viability of the venture before you invest in a full-time senior position.
Henley Interim meets these needs by offering you a commercial resource, highly skilled and experienced in Marketing, Planning and Business Development, on a contract basis flexible to your needs.
But the real beauty of using Henley Interim is that, by contracting from Henley Interim, you get the best of both worlds • the experience needed to generate immediate value in your business and the flexibility of being in total control of the cost.

Work Experience Summary: Matthew Simmons who, following a successful corporate career, has had over 7 years experience as a contract interim, helping businesses at all stages of their development fulfill their potential through planned, creative marketing and business development.
Matthew, a Cambridge graduate and MBA, has over 25 years experience in industry working in a variety of Marketing and Business Development roles for blue chip electronics companies such as Philips and Samsung in a variety of product divisions and disciplines.
While working in Digital Cable TV, Matthew negotiated broadcast/carriage deals with the likes of the BBC, Discovery Channel and BSkyB to carry their channels on the new ntl (now Virgin Media) digital service.
Since embarking on his career providing Interim commercial services, his international experience in North America, Europe, India, Middle East and Asia has given him the opportunity to benefit from the exposure to different cultures and ways of doing business and also to build a useful network of contacts in many disciplines.
At the leading edge of the digital revolution while at ntl (now Virgin Media), I developed a fascination for digital marketing and this has played a major part in many of the projects I have been involved with over the past 3 years. Not surprisingly given the importance of online marketing in all its forms to the overall marketing mix.
During this time, as marketing consultant to Snap Marketing (and Snap Creative) I have managed the creative development of websites, run Google Adwords campaigns, optimised websites, developed landing pages strategies for SEM and Google adwords as well as utilising social media for both outbound marketing and SEO. And my philosophy, ever since my first marketing mentor at Philips (a real industry guru), is that if you can\'t measure it, it means nothing.
