Harness the power of a good board

You might think that setting up a board is an activity reserved for large corporations rather than for your small business, but this couldn’t be further from the truth.

No business is too small to benefit from having a board. In fact, it’s such a powerful management tool that no small business should be without one. It will be your sounding board, a source of ideas and expertise. It will fill any knowledge gaps with expert help, innovate and challenge your thinking; and help you make contacts you wouldn’t otherwise make.

Finding and appointing one would normally be a painstaking and expensive process. So, let Inspire do the hard work for you – and find you the perfect ‘Virtual Board’ to turbo charge your business.

The Inspire Board abstract

Expertise and experience at your fingertips

Your board will be made up of a group of highly experienced, intelligent and accomplished business-people who have run large, successful business and have faced all the challenges of managing a fast-growing enterprise.

They will be able to offer guidance on all aspects of scaling a business as well as bringing a host of useful contacts and networks, in the UK and across the world.

They will also provide constructive challenge around business decisions and add that high level support which is usually found only in larger businesses.

How can the Inspired Board help you?

  • Jenny

    Senior IT Director




    Senior IT Director

    Jenny is 47 and spent the first part of her career in senior IT Director level roles in Financial Services, where she had the ability to draw down on internal departments to help her get things done.

    Having set up her own business 5 years ago and seen it grow, Jenny is cynical about the use of external advisors but recognises the value in having the right support and knowledge around her. She values the wisdom of others when she can recognise that their knowledge is broader than her own.

    She is knowledgeable in her own field, but needs some help to establish more governance over the business as it starts to trade in areas that could expose wider operational risk. She would benefit from a discussion with us to explore the option of the Inspired Board.

    Jenny is also looking to raise capital. She wants to bolster her datacentre service offering without impacting her position as majority shareholder. We could help her explore competitively based interest rates on bank loans as well accessing government grants and loans.
