Advisory Boards - Why Join One?

Webcast recorded 2 November 2022


In this webcast, Louise and Mary-Sue explain what an advisory board actually is, explain how advisory boards can assist businesses, and discuss how you can find an advisory position.  


Louise Broekman

Founder and CEO, Advisory Board Centre

Louise is an award-winning entrepreneur, researcher and business advisor with industry and government recognition at a local and national level for her contribution to the Australian business sector. Louise has the unique advantage of having been on both sides of the table; in the shoes of a founder and that of a chair of multiple advisory boards.

After establishing an advisory board in 2005 for her own business, Louise recognised first-hand how a well-run advisory board can positively impact CEOs and the business at large. Upon exiting her multinational business, Louise served as chair for commercial advisory boards before starting her second business. Now, as the founder and CEO of the Advisory Board Centre, Louise facilitates leading executive education programs for incredibly ambitious, progressive, and committed advisory board members, supporting their professional development and in turn, the businesses that they serve.
