Topic: Building an Advisory Board for Your Business
Being an entrepreneur can be a lonely business. Member Jennifer A. Dewling, Principal at Genova Private Management, will discuss how to make sure you have the right people supporting your success by creating and using an advisory board.
What is an Advisory Board you ask?
Simply put, an Advisory Board consists of individuals, chosen by the entrepreneur to provide guidance covering a wide range of expertise. Unlike a Board of Directors, members of an Advisory Board have no formal decision-making capacities within the company. They are there solely to support the entrepreneur.
By creating an advisory board, either formal or informal, you have created an outlet to discuss opportunities, to navigate challenges and to look at next steps. Members of the board will be there to provide guidance, knowledge and business development insight.
Join the roundtable to discuss the best way to design a board for yourself.
Join fellow CAWEE members for a moderated discussion on a designated topic with advice and anecdotes from other attendees. The program is free however there is a cost applied which will be redirected to a breakfast program of your choice AFTER you have attended. The Round Table sessions are capped at 8 so register quickly!
About Round Table Events...
The idea is simple and inspired by such groups as Mastermind or PAGs. An organizer picks an industry or business topic of interest to our membership, like hiring new employees, food and beverage, B2B, etc. Registration is first come-first served to a maximum group of 8, and the timing will be a lunch or dinner meet-up. The cost of registration is the same as that of breakfast, but once you attend the Round Table, YOUR NEXT BREAKFAST IS Free (maximum 2 months from roundtable date) . After that, you only pay for what you order for food or beverages at the Round Table venue.
During the meal, the group engages in Round Table chat where they brainstorm and share ideas. Attendees take turns speaking specifically on challenges they're facing in their own businesses (or challenges they know their clients have encountered) and everyone else offers advice or anecdotes on similar situations.
Round Tables are a chance for peer mentorship and CAWEE member networking. Unlike Mastermind or PAGs, which require a significant time commitment, round tables are standalone events, unless the group wants to meet again at a later date, at which point there would be a new sign-up.Register Now
