Lunch & Learn: Scaling governance through advisory boards

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Join Louise Broekman, founder and CEO of the Advisory Board Centre, on Thursday 9 February at 12:00pm as she outlines some of the key considerations for scaling businesses as they look to take their operations, governance and growth to the next level.

High-growth founders typically have the opportunity to connect with a raft of business experts, consultants, growth mentors and advisors as they experience each next stage of growth.

Harnessing the value that the external experts can bring to your startup/scaleup through an advisory board or structure, and having the flexibility to change that structure as needed to suit your purposes, can be a valuable asset as you navigate the next steps in growth and maturity of your business, and can be a highly cost-effective means of bringing those experts in around you..

Ensuring that this structure is safe, impactful and actually delivers value is even more essential.

In this session, Louise will explore some key themes that we have encountered over time working with high-growth scaling businesses including:

  • How every startup and scale-up needs to consider the establishment of a governance structure for their business
  • What is it and how do you scale governance so that it is both practical and in line with the business's own growth path?
  • Advisory boards can represent a practical first approach to governance - learn what they are and understand the best approach to engaging external advisors
