How To Build A High-Impact Advisory Board

Nick discusses advisory boards, and the governance you may need in order to scale your business. Many see the growth of a business as a gradual shift in your identity, and in this episode, Nick explains why the identity of the business itself must also grow, including at the highest level.


  • Businesses that have some level of advisory governance, tend to work out to be more valuable in the long run. Having an external perspective can also help with execution and strategy.
  • An advisory board is a group of subject matter experts who provide the company leadership team with a new perspective upon factors such as innovation, risk management, growth, profitability and other areas.
  • When you bring in someone to sit on a board, you must always compensate. This can take the form of perks such as travel or accommodation and dining, but can also stretch to equity shares.
  • Advisory boards are there to not just offer guidance on the areas you do know about, but to offer support and mentorship in the areas in which you are unfamiliar.


‘You can only scale a business to the level of your identity’

‘If you’re going to pay for expertise and expect a result, it is an investment’

‘You need people who’ve been there and done it. Who’ve got the t-shirt’

‘It’s about understanding the value of having that support network around you’
