Business Builder’s Blueprint
TAB members have access to a proven strategic business planning process.
“Since I joined TAB, my TAB board colleagues have shared with me in the TAB boardroom their different approaches to marketing, operations, pricing and costing, staff management and more. I understand the key drivers of growth and profit in my business even better and how to take my business on to a new level.”
“Since joining TAB I have made some good friends who laugh and cry together, which is testament to how strong the bond of the Board is. The different skills and diverse range of businesses on our Board means you get such a variety of views to help you see things from a new perspective. I couldn’t be without it to help me through some of the challenges I face and the bit of time I need to invest each month in the Board meetings and 1-to-1 sessions has made me more efficient and focused.”
We support business owners to take their business to the next level through;
a supportive advisory board and made up of other local business owners, expert 1-2-1 coaching and mentoring, and our suite of business tools.
But how do we differ from a traditional business coach and mentor or small business coach?
They may concentrate on improving your sales, sorting out your HR or helping you with your finances but that’s where it often ends.
At TAB, we’ll look at these too of course, but we’ll start with you, the business owner, as a person.
There’s one date in my diary that I refuse to miss and that’s my monthly TAB board meeting. It’s my chance to meet with like-minded business owners whose opinion I really value and respect – when I can get out of the office for a few hours and know I’ll get invaluable insights from people, who’ve tackled the same kind of issues. They’re prepared to step into my shoes and often suggest a path I hadn’t even thought of.

Sharing experience, knowledge, hopes, ambitions and fears with a board of peers is enormously beneficial to my business and to me as an individual. Consultants can only go so far – nothing beats the real life lessons that a peer group of this stature can give. Give me real experience over books and gurus any day!
