Master Advisory Group has been a great asset in running and growing our business. It has provided me the resources, knowledge and contacts to focus on big picture business planning rather than just reacting to the “crisis of the day.

What You Will Talk About

Your group will identify its own critical issues, needs and goals to develop a specific annual work plan to address them. Topics could range from sales, marketing, public relations, finance and information technology to more complicated matters such as strategic planning, organizational development, delegating and chain of command, human resources, ethics and international trade.


How will you benefit

Each group will be large enough to assure diversity of background and experience, and small enough to promote meaningful interaction. You learn best practices and form a network of referrals and resources. You gain insight, support and confidence from women who know exactly what you’re going through. Most importantly, you take the time to focus on strengthening and growing your business.
