Some feedback from attendees of previous workshops:

“Free flowing and relevant”

“Worth doing for advisory board and business planning”

“I think this is a great workshop in working on what you needed for your business and to talk about it with other business owners. Because I’ve done all of the work I needed to do in the workshop for the advisory board, I can now take this information and start to look for board members. It’s given me a clear roadmap on setting up my own board.”

Intro to AB wshop -2-resized“Helen was very passionate, knowledgeable, and engaging on the topic of Advisory Boards. Her teaching style, the pace of the delivery, and her inclusive manner.”

“The course provided some general information that gave a broad outline of what an advisory board was and how it differs to a formal Board of Directors. It provided exactly what it stated that it would provide. It would be useful to have a follow up course/workshop that allowed further development. Perhaps a couple of sessions where you could apply the principles to your business.”

“I would recommend a new business to participate in the Advisory Board course. The course will give you an understanding what support you can get from introducing your operation to other experts and involve them in supporting the business to excel. The course gave you the initial tools and thought re choosing the right board as well as future support to chose the right people if needed.”
