Page Yaneek FP(January 23, 2017) Executive Director of WEConnect International in the Caribbean Yaneek Page recently shared advice on how and why small businesses should create advisory boards in a recent article in The Gleaner. Writes Page:

"The majority of businesses registered in Jamaica are done as business name registrations and not as limited liability companies with a formal board of directors.

A large number of businesses rely exclusively on a single individual, usually the sole proprietor, for strategic management, governance and all aspects of leadership. That individual is typically the businesses' sole source of knowledge, expertise and experience to influence critical decision-making.

It is an extremely tall order for any one person to fulfill. It should, therefore, come as no surprise that when compared to a company with a well-functioning, qualified and effective board of directors, a small business with no board is likely at a significant disadvantage."

"There are many small businesses that offer outstanding service, outpacing and outclassing the offerings of their larger and more complacent counterparts. However, ironically and sadly, as a consumer who has been burnt several times by unprofessional micro and small business operators, I can understand why some people may have a preference to do business with more established companies that are more purposeful about customer satisfaction, retention, and company reputation."
