Barbara Hoisl - Virtual Strategy Officer

Take Your Company to the Next Level

If you’re leading a fast-growing technology business, you know that strategy and business planning are key to taking the company where you want it to be.

Strategy & Business Planning Challenges

  • Are you presented with a strategic opportunity, for example building a strategic partnership?
  • Are you planning a strategic move, such as an acquisition?
  • Do you want to sharpen your message to raise a new round of financing?
  • Are you looking to ensure the exit-readiness of your business?
  • Would you like to periodically adapt and evolve your strategy and business plan?

In a high-growth environment, it is often hard to drive these important initiatives exclusively in-house:

  • Do you lack senior strategy professionals in-house?
  • Are you unable to allocate sufficient bandwidth?

Virtual Strategy Officer – Expertise On-Demand

This is where I can help: I bring the necessary skills and additional bandwidth to address strategic opportunities and to drive periodic strategy & planning efforts.

You get the expertise of a senior and highly experienced strategy professional – it’s like having a Chief Strategy Officer on your executive team. But collaboration is project-based and on-demand only.

Support through Consulting and Training Services

I support clients primarily through project-based consulting services in two categories:

  • projects to address specific strategic opportunities,
    for example building a key alliance, raising the next round of financing, acquiring a company, or positioning your own company for a successful exit
  • projects to drive periodic strategy & business planning efforts, for example strategy refresh in preparation of a board meeting

In addition to consulting, I offer a range of training courses on key strategy and business planning topics. 

Deep Expertise in Strategy for High-Tech Markets

My work is based on deep expertise from many years of direct, first-hand experience in business planning, strategy, and M&A for a leading global enterprise software business, and from consulting Internet and technology startups.

This industry-specific expertise is rather hard to find here in Europe – I’d love to use it to help you take your company to the next level!
