Advisory leaders offer a consultative model, where individuals are engaged for a limited amount of hours per week or month to offer expert insight to a full-time executive or team. In advisory engagements, talent is retained to provide input on various challenges on an ongoing basis or on a recurring topic over time.
- offering mentorship to a “rising star” or newly seated senior executive; the seasoned executive offers advice and functions as a sounding board to ensure success in the mentee’s role
- helping to guide a company or team’s strategic, longer-term efforts
- allowing investors to retain subject matter experts available to advise multiple portfolio companies on various topics on an ongoing basis

A billion-dollar, global consumer health company needed an interim chief people officer during the search for a permanent hire. TrueBridge matched the client with an experienced people leader who most recently helped scale an organization from 2,000 to 4,000 employees as CPO.
In this interim role, the TrueBridge Network member worked with the client to help identify and secure their full-time HR leader. They then transitioned to an advisory role – providing a smooth transition and ongoing mentorship to the new leader. All of this was facilitated by TrueBridge.
