We treat our clients with respect by being honest and radically transparent. We only recommend marketing solutions that we fully believe in. We operate as if we are internal to our client’s team, not an outsourced vendor.
We believe ‘playing it safe’ is dangerous, and disruption can lead to the biggest successes. We challenge the status quo and look for new ways to deliver value. When there’s something we don’t believe in, we push back and speak with conviction.
We believe in lifelong learning. Our curiosity in our clients’ businesses allows us to provide better marketing strategies. By asking thoughtful questions and being open-minded, we gain insights that lead to innovative solutions and meaningful results.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you’re already operating a successful fractional CMO or consulting business that’s scaling effectively, Growth Connect is probably not a fit.
But if you’re ready to leave the corporate environment and don’t want to take the leap into starting a business from scratch, Growth Connect is an excellent option.
We offer an entrepreneurial path with far less risk: You choose your own clients and schedule, and we provide a marketing methodology, a platform for you to promote your services, a group of peers to learn with, and a pool of talented specialists to help with execution.

For especially qualified applicants, you can join as a contractor from your current location and later decide if you’d like to move to Thailand. However, you will only be eligible for employee benefits if you are hired as an employee in Thailand.
