Hosts of Disrupt Radio’s lunchtime show The Advisory Board revealed 

Upcoming entrepreneur and innovation station, Disrupt Radio has announced its lunchtime show, The Advisory Board (12-2pm) will be hosted by the Director of Innovation for the Monash Centre for Consciousness and Contemplative Studies, Megan Flamer (pictured right) alongside investor Alan Jones (pictured left). 

Speaking with SmartCompany, the hosts revealed that they are often asked the same questions about entrepreneurship, startups, and investing, which inspired the idea of working together on a show to answer the frequently asked questions. 

“We came up with this idea for the podcast, The Advisory Board, where people could basically agony aunt — they were already asking us all of these questions. We thought it would be a great way to answer them en masse,” Flamer said.

Jones said he found that advice was as important as an investment for the startups he crossed paths with, leading to the idea for the duo’s show.

“I didn’t set out to become a startup founder coach, but when I began investing in other people’s startups 15 years ago, some of the startups I was interested in needed my advice and support. Coaching great founders became as rewarding as investing and I just leaned into the work I loved,” Jones said.

“Initially we were really just speaking to startup founders as we’ve both been in the startup community for many years. But we’ve found [especially with] the different work that we’ve both been doing in the last couple of years that the remake got a lot broader, Flamer said.

“My expertise is really driven from a whole life perspective — looking at wellbeing, stress, how to manage relationships and communication. And we’ve both worked in the business world, started up organisations, dealt with PNLs, managed the needs and growth of the business, or all the lack thereof.”

Flamer and Jones join the likes of Libbi GorrJules Lund and Nazeem Hussain at Disrupt Radio. 

Disrupt Radio’s launch is anticipated in the coming months.
