Building an effective advisory board
Advisory boards are accessible to businesses of any size and can be a valuable tool in accelerating sustainable growth through developing specialist networks and knowledge and setting longer term plans.So why, studies suggest as little as 6% of SMEs, do so few take steps to build their own boards?In this workshop, we will explore the benefits and pitfalls, when and how to start forming an effective board.
You will learn:
- How to define the type of support you need - Practical routes to identifying and connecting with potential advisers - How much to expect to pay - Tips for developing effective boards
