Practice Advisory Boards Service

Overview of Practice Assessment blue banner,.

What are Advisory Boards?

Advisory Boards are being established by small to medium practices on an increasing basis. Advisory Boards can also be known as advisory panels, advisory committees or advisory councils. Advisory Boards assist in creating a profitable business model that is robust enough to withstand adversity and capitalise on opportunities. 

Why? Decision-making capacity and responsibility rest with the practice owner (as opposed to a formal board of directors where liability and responsibility ultimately rest with the whole board). Although members of Advisory Boards act with due care, they are not fiduciaries charged with fiduciary duties or responsibilities. 

Typically, the practice owners are looking for:

  • Challenges to their thoughts
  • Strategy assistance
  • Co-ordination advice
  • Business improvement suggestions
  • Policies & procedures establishment
  • Governance & compliance
  • Commercial Vs technical input
  • Outside the business input

Members of the Advisory Board usually include a mix of:

  • The owner/s
  • Key personal
  • Accountant, legal or other advisors
  • Trusted business associates
  • Family members who have experience in the business but have retired/stepped aside.
