Saccade – the network of freelance consultant CTOs – is becoming part of 101 Ways.
For those that aren’t in the know, Saccade has a history of helping digital businesses succeed in engineering and product endeavours by providing independent, experienced C-level consultancy and coaching to existing teams and leaders on an interim basis. With 101 Ways well-established role of providing leadership and advisory services to our clients, the union seemed like a match made in agile heaven.
Due to an increase in the number of client requests for our help, we realised we needed a better way of finding great, reliable leaders outside of the 101 Ways network, and fast. So, when CTO and Saccade founder, Andy Skipper approached us with a view to taking over the community, it became obvious that in doing so, we’d not only improve our ability to hire at C-level but could build upon this already prominent network.
After our exclusive kick-off event on 26 April 2018, we launched the union of Saccade and 101 Ways’ consultant community – CTOzone. An invite-only CTO/technology leader group, the community is built on the ethos of trust and openness; members can safely share knowledge, compare notes and war stories, and grow their peer network.
Set to become the ‘Swiss army knife’ of groups, CEO Kelly Waters tells us why he is so pleased about the partnership and excited about the future of the community:
“Our network is pretty big, but it can always be bigger. Having the Saccade network as a part of 101 Ways is great because it means for clients we can find the right people for the right job at the right time.”
But don’t just take our word for it, watch as Head of Client Partnership, Jamie North interviews Andy and Kelly about (the now-named!) CTOzone here:
CTOzone events will be running once a quarter with the next one taking place in July. If you’re not a freelance CTO, but are still interested we’d love to hear from you. Or if you’re a client in need of a freelance CTO, get in touch as our talent network is growing so we can provide you with an even better service.
