Become an Advisor

Here's everything potential advisors need to know about how Faraday & Company establish and manage professional advisory boards that dramatically improve small and mid-market business performance.





Background


We live in a world were volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity are now a permanent business condition, forcing business leaders to ask how much they really know about a situation, and how well they can predict the results of their actions.

In the search for answers, today's directors, business owners and managers frequently find themselves confronted by problems outside their day-to-day areas of expertise. This is the new reality.

Small and medium enterprises (SME) with Professional Advisory Boards perform better in terms of sales, productivity and profitability. Independent research into SME advisory boards by BDC found:

  • SME revenue grew 67% in the three years after establishing an advisory board, compared with 23% growth in the three years prior


  • SME productivity increased 5.9% in the three years after engaging an advisory board, compared with 3.2% in the three years before


  • Over a 10-year period, companies with advisory boards reported sales 24% higher than companies without 86% of SME business leaders said their advisory board had a significant impact on the success of their business

When best practice is followed in establishing and managing a professional advisory board, the business develops new ideas, makes better decisions and avoids costly mistakes. It’s this combination of informed moves that significantly increases the probability of success.


Critical in determining those moves is access to the knowledge, skills and experience of professional advisors who can understand and solve complex business problems.


Faraday & Company follow a proven process for finding, selecting, engaging and managing professional advisors for small and mid-market companies.
