A Conversation around the topic Advisory Boards
Date and Time
The Difference Incubator (TDi)
1/673 Bourke St, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia
Do you have all the skills your business needs to grow and scale? Are you as well connected as you would like to be? Are you suffering from myopia and require an external perspective?
Have you considered surrounding yourself with a group of mentors, an advisory board, who collectively can give you advice, recommendations, and accountability? Alternatively, maybe you have been asked to be on an Advisory Board for a social enterprise or business. The question is, do you know what’s involved? What are the expectations? What are the rewards? What are the downsides? There are many sides to this relationship, the board, its members and the entrepreneurs? Advisory Boards are like a mixed bag of lollies – each bag can be entirely different from another. What can Advisory Board look like?
