Board of Advisors

By Mike Philie
In October 5, 2008

In hearing about the presidential candidates and how they are assembling their advisor groups I wondered about the advisor groups the we tap into as salespeople and business owners. What do these look like? Do they exist? I know that forward thinking owners and senior managers may belong to a peer group that meets 2-3x per year and that also serves as a network to bounce ideas off of. How about the rest of us?

We are faced some unpredictable and challenging times as we attempt to grow our sales, acquire new clients and keep our business healthy and thriving. It becomes increasingly more difficult to do it alone.

I'm curious to know what your group or network looks like, if you have one. If you don't have a trusted board of advisors it may be time to re-think your strategy.

Mike works with printing companies that are not satisfied with their sales and business development performance, and are looking to get objective advice and strategic direction on how to improve the results of their business. His engagements can range from providing input on the overall sales strategy to building business development pipelines while training the processes of “selling” in today’s marketplace. Mike quickly establishes himself as a trusted resource and advisor to the owners and senior staff of his client companies through his personal involvement, and very quietly and effectively becomes an extension of their staff.
