Date/time: Friday, November 5, 2021. 4pm Networking. 4.30pm – 6pm interactive workshop.
Understanding the Growth and Impact of Advisory Boards
Where businesses have gaps in internal mastery to effectively navigate change and confidently assess the associated risks, they will look for innovative and flexible ways to access external support with diverse skills and current knowledge. Enter an Advisory Board – enabling owners or managers of a business to gain strategic insight and advice to support critical thinking, have access to independent views and ultimately, provide a safe space to discuss issues of major significance. Inherently fit-for-purpose, Advisory Boards can evolve over time with change of focus or Advisors, ultimately being a problem-solving model whilst decision-making and ownership stays with the business leaders.
Since 2019, there has been a 52% increase globally in organisations utilising Advisory Boards as part of their governance structure. Advisory Boards are about the future – what’s going to happen and how can an organisation be steered in the right direction? Harnessing the power of Advisory Boards is often transformational for an organisation, the business owners and executives.
Speaker Louise Broekman is one of the foremost leading minds in the Advisory sector, and endeavours to help professionals and businesses understand the benefits of having an Advisory Board or being an Advisor. This session will explore how businesses can tap into the best minds and bring on relevant expertise to meet market pressures and take a business to the next level.
In this event, you will learn:
– Understand business growth and investment cycles
– Understand the Advisory landscape
– Why businesses establish an Advisory Board
– Most common Advisory Board structures
– Difference between Advisory Boards and Governance Boards
– Understand global market trends in the Advisory sector
