The Board – Launching in Ireland
Today we’re launching a totally new business concept called The Board. It’s aimed exclusively at business owners to help them grow their business, solve issues, and fulfil their potential as entrepreneurs.
We’ve been quietly trialling The Board for the past 18 months, tweaking it’s format, figuring out what works and getting feedback from a selection of trial members. Now though, we’re ready to launch it as a fully blown business and can start accepting applications for membership.
We have secured funds from a number of private investors and are excited to be hosting our first official board meeting tonight in Dublin.
What is The Board?
The Board is a support group for your business, provided in the form of structured monthly board meetings. Each meeting is chaired by a trained facilitator who’s role is to ensure that the agenda is adhered to and that everyone gets to an even share of the allocated time.
Board members are made up of other business owners in non-competing businesses, often in very complimentary sectors.
Throughout the trials, we’ve found that typical areas of discussion include:
- improving cashflow;
- growing sales;
- seeking advice in gaining grant aid;
- staff issues;
I’ll write up a whole lot more about this over the coming weeks as further announcements happen, but for now, if this looks like something you’d be interested in then head over to http://theboard.ie and signup for an info pack.
