They can also reduce stress upon individual growers and their immediate families by sharing and consolidating the process of strategic and tactical decisions.

Key points

  • Advisory boards can contribute to an improved bottom line by providing decision support, setting guidelines for prudent budgeting and expenditure, and keeping informed and ready for new opportunities and innovations.
  • Advisory boards can reduce emotion in decision-making, leading to more considered choices. This can ease stress and have mental health benefits.
  • When functioning properly an advisory board requires a small investment in time and money which leads to improved resource and workplace efficiency.
