Description

An effective Advisory Board can be a crucial success factor for New Zealand’s businesses, both large and small, and are an increasingly popular method of governance for kiwi business owners. Yet most business people do not understand the value an Advisory Board offers, how they work, how they differ from a Board of Directors, what business owners are looking for and what it takes to be an Advisory Board member.

If the time is taken to ‘do it right’, an Advisory Board is a simple and effective framework for you to work closely with your clients. From day to day operational improvements to longer term strategic planning, Advisory Boards are helping business owners improve their decision making capabilities, increase accountability and access the skills and expertise to take their business to the next level.

Join us for this practical introductory webinar delivered by Helen Down, Managing Director of Advisory Boards New Zealand.

As part of the webinar you will also receive a practical workbook from Advisory Boards New Zealand with excellent reference material, checklists and a 90 Day Advisory Board Action Plan.

This popular webinar is ideal for business owners and professional services people who are keen to take the first step towards being involved in Advisory Boards. If you are looking for an innovative way to give your clients a competitive edge, and your own business a real point of difference then you really should take a closer look at Advisory Boards.
