Get your own board

Facing big decisions? Looking for an outside perspective? With our free Boards programme, you don’t have to go it alone.

Over the course of 12 months, you’ll enjoy invaluable non-executive director style support from a group of experienced businesspeople made up of leaders and senior managers from successful firms with specialisms like finance, marketing, operations or HR.

“Advisory Boards are a superb opportunity to get joined-up thinking across the whole of our business over a 12-month period. Through this strategic level of support, we’ll be able to make some real changes and grow our business.”

    You’ll attend a virtual induction event, giving you the opportunity to meet other participants

  • 3

    You’ll attend online meetings every three months to talk through challenges and gain input

  • 4

    You’ll identify actions to help move your business forward and will report back to your board for accountability and guidance


“This is a great opportunity to tap into the experience of some much bigger, longer established businesses. Initially we focused on product development and have now started thinking about areas like productivity.”
