How to Create a Board of Advisors that Drives Your Growth & Profit
Wednesday, June 27th
The strategy that made the biggest impact on the growth of Marissa Levin’s multi-million dollar global business is the implementation of an advisory board. After painstakingly dissecting the process she used to create the board that revolutionized her business, she decided to share it with other entrepreneurs and additional influencers of the entrepreneurial community. Always an innovator, Marissa created SCALE™, a ground-breaking method that helps other business owners recruit, implement, and leverage their own business-altering advisory boards.
In her new book, "Built to Scale™: How Top Companies Create Breakthrough Growth Through Exceptional Advisory Boards", Marissa uses her proven SCALE™ framework to guide entrepreneurs step-by-step as they build the advisory boards they need to become exceptional, connected, knowledgeable leaders with successful and profitable businesses.
As educators and mentors to both emerging and established entrepreneurs, the SCALE™ Model equips you with everything you need to educate your students on the importance of an advisory board, and enables you to lead them through a strategic process. There is no other clearly defined, end-to-end process for building an advisory board.
The SCALE™ Model is also applicable to non-profit and institutional advisory boards, enabling educational institutions and non-profit organizations to hand-select the advisors that will most effectively support them in their organizational and educational missions.
- Select the right people to take your business, organization, or educational institution from where it is now to where you want it to be
- Compensate your advisors (you’ll learn about monetary, non-monetary, and equity-based options along with the legal and financial implications)
- Strategically integrate them into your organization with an effective strategy that minimizes disruption and maximizes effectiveness
- Leverage your advisors for business, process, and infrastructure development as well as for networking and strategic planning
- Evaluate and evolve the board as your organization grows
You'll learn more about the recommended steps for developing an advisory board that will help you and your staff address the increasing role entrepreneurship will play in your institution. Don't miss this!
