FAQs

Is Bigfish a headhunter?

No. Bigfish stands apart from headhunting firms through its emphasis on sustained partnership and executive development. It offers a complete talent management solution, encompassing coaching, networking, online presence, and skill enhancement. It prioritizes long-term growth over short-term placements, ensuring executives' professional and personal aspirations align harmoniously. Unlike headhunters who focus on recruitment, Bigfish is dedicated to fostering leadership fulfillment, promoting internal growth, and guiding executives towards their current and future aspirations.

Is Bigfish an outplacement company?

No. Bigfish distinguishes itself from outplacement firms by fostering long-term collaborations between agents and executives. It goes beyond traditional job transitions, offering a comprehensive talent management approach. Through coaching, networking, reputation enhancement, and masterclasses, Bigfish empowers executives to realize their ambitions. The focus is on holistic growth, aligning personal aspirations with professional success. Unlike outplacement, which primarily aids job transitions, Bigfish cultivates enduring partnerships to nurture current and future leaders, ensuring their fulfillment and growth within their current roles and beyond.

Is Bigfish a training provider?

No. Bigfish transcends conventional training providers by offering a comprehensive talent management ecosystem. It goes beyond mere skill development, encompassing coaching, networking, reputation building, and aspiration fulfillment. Unlike training providers that primarily offer skill-based courses, Bigfish nurtures executives holistically, aligning personal aspirations with professional growth. It fosters enduring partnerships to maximize potential, ensuring leaders evolve into fulfilled individuals. While training providers focus on imparting specific skills, Bigfish creates a transformative journey for executives, emphasizing long-term development, goal attainment, and overall leadership excellence.

How much does it cost?

Our agents are emotionally and professionally committed to our talent. We don’t sell products, but provide global talent management expertise to our talents.
Agents exchange their bespoke services for a fixed annual fee based on the compensation level of the talent they represent.

How does Bigfish decide whether or not it is a talent?

At Bigfish, we evaluate prospective members based on the impact of their achievements and potential. We are looking for individuals who hold senior leadership positions (President, CEO, Chairperson of the Board, Managing Director, Managing Partner, or Equivalent title) and of course rising executives with the ambition of becoming the leaders of tomorrow.

How does Bigfish select its agents?

Our agents come from different cultural backgrounds and bring a wealth of perspectives, ideas, and expertise that is just as varied as that of the talents they represent. All of them have:

  • A proven track record in talent management
  • Guided demanding profiles in complex environments
  • 15+ years of experience in top management and executive coaching
  • A strong and ethical backbone

In addition to agents, Bigfish has industry experts who, upon request, can help agents answer technical or specific questions our talent may have (go-to-market strategies, salary benchmark, tax advice, crisis management, etc.).
