“The stigma of having people help you, as in a coach therapist, has been lifted and people who are smart realize they don’t know all the answers and they can reach out.”

- Fran Pomerantz

In this episode of Digital Workplace Impact, Paul Miller talks to Fran Pomerantz, founder of The Pomerantz Group, which offers coaching and executive recruitment in the digital space.

Ninety-eight percent of The Pomerantz Group’s placements are into roles that never existed before, so Fran is therefore well versed in understanding her clients’ needs and helping them to see the previously unseen.

As we find ourselves in a period where innovation is key to business survival, Fran shares her insights into the challenges and opportunities presented by COVID-19, offers advice to those looking to accelerate their careers, and explains why she thinks standing still could mean the demise of your business.
