Presenter: Alfredo Puche, The Alternative Board Nelson Marlborough


Together with a group of other business owners and leaders, you will work together and get valuable real-world advice and leave with goals and new ideas for your business. Experience the different roles played in a Board of Directors and benefit from the collective wisdom as large businesses do.

Every workshop includes a chance to table your challenges and opportunities and bounce your ideas with other business leaders, in a confidential, relaxed and supportive setting.

Every participant will get free access to a business diagnostic tool. The use of this tool will be shown and explained in the workshop and after completion of the exercise a personalised report will be generated and delivered to you.

Attendees will learn; 

  • Understanding a Board of Directors and playing the different roles.
  • The benefits of working with a group of professionals versus being isolated.
  • Reassessing key decisions that impact their business.
  • Creating the necessary focus on the critical and important next steps.
  • Identifying the strengths and weaknesses in the business diagnostic selected area.

So attendees can then; 

  • Get new ideas and feedback.
  • Take better decisions for their company.
  • Feel supported.
  • Decide on actions to improve the diagnosed business area
