“Clare’s experience shows in the way she asks perceptive questions that get you to think about problems differently. Her persistence style cuts through woolly thinking and enables you to get clarity on a way forward that is then actionable. Always come away feeling meetings with Clare feeling energised.”
Dave Nyss, D2 Solutions
Andy Cecil has worked wonders for my business and me personally. Since 2015 Andy has been my business coach and my company has been reaping the rewards of his excellent work. Andy is a very professional, trustworthy and driven business coach. He has an obvious passion to help others succeed which is backed by extensive hands-on business management experience. Andy really understands both me and my business. He gently guides me to realise, define and achieve my goals. With his help I am developing my management team so the business can continue to grow in a sustainable way.
Quentin Lister, BitBox
Clare’s vast diversification of experience enables her to achieve a deep understanding of all businesses, whilst she delivers her support in a sympathetic and empathetic style, without ever passing judgement. She is able to cut to the real issues that we face and together we design and agree strategies to help us -whilst holding me to account as I progress to the agreed outcomes. I always conclude our meetings more energised, more optimistic and with my self-belief topped up.
Mark Hynes, Wealth Strategies
Working with Andy as my business coach has been a valuable experience and a decision I wish I’d made sooner. With the additional accountability and coaching, I’ve found I’m leading the direction of my business and there’s much less reactive work. Progress has been rapid and changes I’ve initiated have all led to growth in the business metrics and a far better work life balance.
TAB has really helped me cut out the ‘noise’ and focus on what’s really important in the running of my business.
Alison Wells, Plane Talking
Since working with Andy at The Alternative Board, I have changed the way I am working for the better. His wealth of experience in business brings a new perspective on everyday issues that I come up against. Andy questions me in a way that gives me focus and confidence in decision making. His mentoring has helped to rapidly improve our business and I could not recommend Andy highly enough. If you want to grow your business and make positive changes you should have a chat with Andy.
Neal Purvey, Impella Windscreen Repair
It’s a combination of support and encouragement, and challenge and hard questions that I just don’t get anywhere else.
I’ve found a new energy and clarity since I’ve joined TAB: the mix of group and one-to-one meetings gives me a safe space to work on my business rather than in it, and that has been transformative. The necessity of preparing my issue for the board each month in itself helps me think more clearly. Other board members always bring perspectives and ideas I would never have considered and are generous in offering help and contacts and the one-to-one sessions are the perfect mix of support and challenge. I’d recommend it without hesitation.
Damien has been an inspiration and an invaluable asset to our business and our practices. The 1-2-1 sessions have ventured through brilliant business advice, accountable actions and useful contacts. Occasionally almost venturing in to business counselling and at times with solid and honest home truths that even if hard to admit, are incredibly valuable. The board meetings have always brought up fantastic insights and the benefits of being able to discuss any issues in a safe and respected environment should not be underestimated. Helping each other’s businesses to traverse obstacles and find solutions is both incredibly useful and rewarding. I would gladly recommend The Alternative Board to any business owner.
