Overview: Business Boards Institute™ (BBI) & BLUEPRINT™

Mar. 23, 2022 | 8:00 - 9:30 | Goering Center, Room 359

Advisory boards are game changers for family and private businesses, providing guidance on matters of strategic importance. However, not all businesses have a clear vision for success, strategies to get there, or defined metrics to help them keep score and measure performance. A board of advisors can help with that, but, equip that board with a BLUEPRINT, and you have a head start on high-impact results.
