Riecks writes a monthly column in Baltimore and Washington SmartCEO magazines and has been published by The Baltimore Business Journal and penned his book: Running Your Own Company: An Entrepreneur’s Field Manual.  Program Highlights CEOs of mid-sized companies have challenges, opportunities and solutions that are different than larger companies.  Often, they need to seek outside advisory services and often find it a very lonely place to be when looking for advice, especially when they don’t have the internal resources or the independent, outside relationships that are needed to bounce ideas off of and gain insights into how to tackle issues that are outside of their current sphere of connections. A Peer or Professional Services Advisory Board can provide informed guidance and serve as a tremendous ally in the quest for superior enterprise management and execution on a business plan. An expert panel will discuss:

  • What is a Peer Advisory Board and how is it different than a Professional Services Advisory Board?
  • How to select who you need to get your business where you want it to be while enabling you to develop exceptional leadership skills
  • Advisory Board compensation
  • Assimilating a board into organizational decision making
  • Strategies to evaluate and evolve the board as your organization grows
