Introduction To Advisory Boards 2023 - 22 March 2023 (On Demand)


A new opportunity for your Professional Services business in 2023

Advisory Boards are an exciting and innovative opportunity to grow your business and add more value to your clients’ businesses.
In these very challenging times supporting your business clients through the setup and operation of an Advisory Board could underpin their success this year as well as your own. You will both reap the benefits for many years to come.

Advisory Boards are increasingly popular with New Zealand’s businesses, both large and small. Learn this simple model in just over an hour, add it to your professional service portfolio and enjoy working more closely with your clients than you have before. Advisory Board services will enable you to develop a more strategic relationship with your clients and help you differentiate your service from your competitors. Advisory Boards are also popular as the first step towards formal Governance for many businesses.

Using the Advisory Boards structure you will work alongside your top clients helping them develop and implement strategy, adapt to change and make better decisions. Advisory Boards are most valuable in a rapidly changing environment and are an effective way to handle the challenges of the economic headwinds of 2023 and beyond.

Unfortunately, most business people do not understand the value an Advisory Board offers, how it works, how it differs from a Board of Directors, what business owners are looking for from an Advisory Board 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 that can transform any business.

Join us for this practical introductory webinar delivered by Helen Down, Managing Director of Advisory Boards New Zealand. Helen will share many real life examples of how Advisory Boards are being used throughout New Zealand.

You will also receive a practical 28 page workbook with excellent reference material, checklists and templates for you to use with your clients immediately.

This popular webinar is ideal for professional services people and business owners who are keen to take the first step towards 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 take a closer look at Advisory Boards.
