We are a volunteer organization of business advisors primarily consisting of retired executives, professionals and business owners. Our members have diverse backgrounds and we try to achieve a balanced team of advisors, to offer our clients a broad and experienced skill sets.
Potential volunteers should consider the following:
The individual should have a solid and successful track record in the world of business.
Our clients are typically small to medium sized business owners and startups who are seeking guidance in a constructive and supportive environment. Some previous experience working with small/medium size businesses is preferred.
The individual is required to regularly participate in client consultations (typically 3 hours in length, with a team of three advisors), providing clients with actionable recommendations for business improvement. Direction to clients is provided in the meetings and in a follow-up written report, therefore strong communication skills are needed.
We operate throughout the year and primarily in the Toronto West through Hamilton corridor. Advisors need to provide their own transportation to attend meetings.
We have quarterly members’ meetings (generally in the Oakville area) and a small board of directors (elected from our members) governs our activities. Other operating committees are formed as needed (i.e. marketing and new members).
There is no remuneration, this is a voluntary position.
If you are or know of someone who may be interested in joining our team, please submit a CV for consideration.
