Introduction To Advisory Boards 2021 - 12 May 2021 (On Demand)


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. Advisory Boards are even more value to business who are experiencing substantial change and are an effective way to handle the challenges that Covid 19 bring to business. Unfortunately 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, adapt their business and access the skills and expertise to take their business to the next level. Advisory Boards are also popular as the first step on a pathway to formal Governance.

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 templates.

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.
