Proven Methodologies for Establishing Robust Customer Advisory Boards Available to Optimize Critical Internal Executive Engagements

SAN DIEGO – July 12, 2016 Ignite Advisory Group, the leading consultancy in the world focused on helping companies manage and optimize their customer advisory board (CAB) programs, today announced a range of new services established to enhance and facilitate executive planning meetings. The new services derive from various customer requests to leverage Ignite’s deep experience in managing customer engagements, and use its proven methodologies and best practices to augment internal corporate planning processes. The new executive offsite planning meetings offering coincide with the launch of a new website focused exclusively on executive planning engagement optimization, www.execoffsite.com.

“We believe the time has come for companies to apply the same structure, discipline and methodologies necessary for creating beneficial CAB programs to their own internal strategic planning meeting engagements. Such planning engagements are likely critical to the success, health, or even survival of the business itself,” said Gavin Nathan, Senior Consultant and Partner of Ignite Advisory Group and Co-Founder of Executive Offsite Meetings. “We recently facilitated an executive planning meeting for one of our CAB clients, and the engagement was a huge success. The meeting garnered wide praise from the participating executives, and strategic planning for their entire year was completed in a single day.”

Executive Offsite Meeting services include:

  • Determine agenda topics, in which Ignite designs robust ideation exercises, strategy games and data visualizations to aid in strategic decision making.
  • Preparing your executive team through advance interviews and engagements aimed at optimizing their invested time and providing tools to drive real organizational change.
  • Gaining consensus, in which Ignite professionally facilitates the meeting to ensure every opinion is heard, inhibitors are addressed and consensus is achieved on a robust go-forward action plan.
  • Data analysis and go-forward plan, in which Ignite creates a detailed report of the meeting, including key decisions, future topics for analysis and agreed next steps with roles, responsibilities, deliverables and timelines.

“Our mission is to help organizations make better strategic decisions faster and in a more structured environment. We strive to help executive management teams develop a solid foundation and business strategy so they can be successful,” added Nathan. “We believe such executive planning engagements demand the dedication, investment, planning – and outside experts — required to ensure their success.”

Ignite’s new executive offsite management services are available now. Complete information can be found at www.execoffsite.com.
