Learn what goes into an Advisory Council meeting

The Anatomy of a Council

Dealey’s Advisory Councils are tightly-structured events designed to allow you to get the most out of your experience at each and every meeting. Wrapped around a catered lunch and closing out with cocktails and networking, the Council experience includes three core elements that help you to achieve your goals.

The Main Mastermind

At each Council meeting, one of the Council’s members serves as the Host. The Host will give an in-depth presentation, discussing one of the great challenges currently facing their business or organization. Once that’s done, each Council member, in turn, will give their insight on the problem, culminating in advice from our facilitators. 


In addition to each meeting’s main Mastermind, members have the opportunity to work through Mini-Mastermind sessions, as well. Members with pressing issues will have the opportunity to quickly describe what’s going on and receive advice from those among their fellow members best equipped to help.

Paying It Forward

Every Council member brings something to the group at each meeting to enrich one another. It could be a piece of advice or news from your field to help your fellow members, a good book that you’ve been reading, or a small, physical gift. This practice helps each Council to grow together.
