  • Chris Mohr
    I feel very lucky

    The sign of a great leader is the culture and environment that they leave behind. Without hesitation, our Product organisation is now infinitely better than what we had before. I consider myself very lucky to have a mentor to help guide me like Colin has, allowing me to flourish in the Product role.

FAQs

Yes! You can book a call with me.

These are common scenarios that I have helped organisations overcome:

๐Ÿ’ก Expertise requirement: when your team requires specialised skills, knowledge or experience to deliver an initiative at a high standard.

๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ Groupthink: providing your team with a fresh alternative opinion to counter groupthink and foster a culture of diversity.

๐Ÿ“ˆ Overcapacity: when your team requires short-term additional capacity to keep up with demand. This ensures that initiatives stay on track and team members avoid burnout.

๐Ÿค• Unplanned absences: if a key team member is unexpectedly unavailable due to illness, personal reasons, or other unforeseen circumstances, I can fill in temporarily to maintain productivity and keep initiatives moving forward.

Not in a like-for-like manner.

Instead, I would position myself as an experienced and flexible option, who provides quality results on specific areas or activities for a limited amount of time.

You decide to use me because of a expertise requirement or capacity gap in your pre-existing team. This opportunity needs to be addressed faster than it takes to complete a sustainable recruitment process.

With that in mind, I can certainly save you from making a ill-advised permanent hire.

I would like to think so!

However, it's usually best to let other people do the talking.

You can also check out my experience on LinkedIn.

I am based in Alicante, Spain.

Due to the flexible nature of my service, and the wonderful Alicante sunshine ๐ŸŒž, I am unable to provide day-to-day office or hybrid presence.

However, if it will be highly beneficial in the context of a project, I will of course travel to perform specific activities. A great example might be a product strategy workshop, where other team members will be attending in-person.

Both billing methodology (fixed fee vs. hourly vs. creative alternate) and rate is determined on a case-by-case basis.

The nature of the work is important to me. I am flexible, open to conversations and keen to commit to interesting opportunities.

Sure, you could, but you will miss out on the following advantages:

๐Ÿ’ฐ Cost: avoid middle-man fees or paying to cover higher operational costs.

๐ŸŒŸ Quality: you will mean more to me than you do to a large agency.

๐Ÿ† Specialist: you know exactly who your team will be working with.

๐Ÿ“ˆ Simplicity: fewer hoops to jump through to see results faster.

๐Ÿ”„ Continuity: dodge communication issues and inconsistencies. The Bus factor is mitigated by my extremely sustainable work practices.

Regardless of my current capacity, I am always open to connect or hear about potential projects. Feel free to reach out or book a call with me.

Yes, although it is no longer my only focus.
