Connecting Academic Expertise with Commercial Advisory Boards
Academics can add significant value to advisory boards established by commercial, not-for-profit, civil society or government entities. These domain authorities offer not only technical expertise but contribute a different perspective, insight into research theory and trends, and perhaps most importantly, high level critical thinking to interrogate strategy and analysis.

Join Advisory Board Centre Founder & CEO, Louise Broekman, in conversation with Kristen Sadler Ph. D., Advisory Board Member for La Trobe Asia, Academic and Speaker.

This session will present the benefits of having an academic presence on an advisory board, as well as recommendations for overcoming the challenges that may be encountered in finding and confirming the right person at the right time.

The possibilities and advantages of university – industry research partnerships will also be explored.

Mar 10, 2020 11:30 AM in Brisbane
