State of the Market Global Report 2023

The wave of continual growth in advisory boards has left a new high-water mark. These signs of the surging use of nonbinding thinking systems are a signal of collaboration where leadership is carefully navigating the future in how decisions are being made.

Driven by our Global Research Council, we are thrilled to share our findings on how the professional advisory sector has evolved over the past two years.

Our continual research tracks advisory board usage, participation by professionals and impacts on organisations.


Diving into best practice.

The two megatrends of changing governance structures and the consultation with the stakeholder economy are driving new growth and new methods in the utilisation of advisory boards. This broad and agile use is also creating different value and risk profiles for advisory board professionals.

The report is designed to provide value to key stakeholder groups with an interest in advisory boards including:

  • The global professional advisory community supporting organisations with strategic insight and foresight at a board level.
  • Corporate entities leveraging advisory boards to support governance agendas and decision-making cycles.
  • Business owners and executives informing business confidence, the constraints, and where advisory boards are adding value.
  • Government, funders, banking sector and industry associations understanding where and how organisations are seeking support
