members of an advisory board focus directly on specific aspects of the company and use their expertise in ways that may restrict the company, whether due to time, money, formalities, or approvals. From a third party perspective, this advice provides an important perspective that counteracts emotional decision making. Advisory boards have many benefits for companies, and many global companies have them. They put together a group of experts and influential people at low cost who can provide open advice, predict future trends, and help guide the company towards its vision and long-term goals.

An advisory board can be a decisive factor. Your Advisory Board is not a substitute for a statutory Board of Directors. If you already have a board of directors, your advisors should complement and strengthen the role of the board of directors.
