Starting a business is one thing, but growing it is another challenge on its own — one that would require the assistance of a professional Board of Advice.
The Board of Advice Program here at Astute Advisory Group is among the most sought after solutions, particularly for medium and larger enterprises. This is primarily due to the onset of growth of businesses, in which owners of private and family ventures seek out specialist advice on knowing how to protect the business, increasing its value, and maximising the capital value on exit so they can achieve financial independence.
We understand your need for a trusted sounding board, with whom you can discuss and collaborate with to develop strategies to address your major business concerns. Having our highly experienced team of advisors on your side would allow you to make more informed decisions, come up with effective strategies in meeting new challenges, as well as help you become more prepared in protecting and securing the future of your business.
We help companies turnaround their non-profitable ventures into something that benefits them. Our speciality lies in understanding what makes a company special and what makes it tick.

98% of business owners in Australia believe there are opportunities to grow their business, and most have ideas to do so. What they lack is a plan – only 20% had prepared a business plan.
A strong business plan requires going beyond intuition and experience and supporting your idea with fact-based market research. You need to have confidence in your understanding of the market, so don’t let yourself down by skimping on research.
