SkyAdvisors Program

Key Advisor

Through a curated matching process, you will meet all of our SkyAdvisors who are interested in a Key Advisor role. Our thoughtful process ensures your Key Advisors are a fit for your teams’ needs.

 

Key Advisors track your progress through the BAM program, receive monthly team updates, and communicate to the rest of the Advisor group if a team has an ask or encounters a challenge.

Access to 250+ Advisors

Our Advisors volunteer once or twice per month for two or four hour blocks. SkyTeams have the opportunity to sign-up for 30 minute 1 on 1 meetings. Additionally, teams have direct access to all SkyAdvisors and are encouraged to contact them directly with any questions.

Slack

Connect with our SkyAdvisors and Industry and Resource partners via individual Slack channels! We want you to have access to up-to-date contact info and event offerings. At SkyDeck, you’re always connected to the best our network has to offer.
