“It’s given me coaching sessions, focusing on the positive elements of my business and helping to grow and develop during what is probably the most difficult trading period we have encountered. TAB has also invited me to a monthly board meeting where I joined 6 existing members, all of whom have extensive business experience and have provided me with some invaluable advice, guidance and accountability.”
Kelly Smith, Juice Personnel
“As a new member of TAB I’ve sat on 4 peer board meetings and have had 7 coaching sessions with Simon. 22 hours that has helped me grow my business by 140% over the worst, strangest and most challenging months that any company could face.
Being a TAB member has been insightful, engaging, and time well spent working on my business.”
Samantha Stones, WF Web Design
“When I was asked to join a TAB board, I’d heard a lot of good things about it from my sister, but I wasn’t 100% sure how it would work for me.
But now… I look forward to the meeting each month. Its a chance to share my business issues with other like minded business owners I listen to their impartial views, and ideas and use their advice to move forward in the right way for me.
Its a business meeting that enables you to problem solve with many different options. It’s also great to air your issues to a board outside of your business, fresh ears let’s say, not your usual sounding board at home!”
Jayne Cave, Stackhouse and Cave Ltd
“During my time I have realised that a large percentage of business failures could have been due to the fact that business owners had no guidance and lacked planning through accountability. I have maintained for years that every business owner should have support ether from a business coach or other business owners. I am therefore practicing what I preach and have joined TAB. Business owners can let things drift and the accountability that TAB provides is already helping me stay on track for the vision I have for my business. I’m really excited about the future and the support I will get from TAB”
Tim Calverley, Laurus Business Advisory Services
“My confidence has grown enormously as a result of the support from Dougie and TAB. Every time I take what feels like a big issue to my Board, I come away feeling that it is much easier to deal with because of the advice I’ve been given by people from very different businesses and backgrounds.”
Jolanta Jankowski, Sampson Products Ltd
“Working for yourself can at times be stressful and lonely. Since joining TAB, Simon has helped me to find focus on the issues that are important to me both personally and professionally. I have identified areas of my business that are of benefit to its survival and growth. The Covid-19 crisis has made it even more important to have clarity and confidence in my plans for the future.”
Julie Austin-Lee, The Yorkshire Handbag Company
“The accountability I get from my TAB Board and facilitator makes me do the things I say I’m going to do – integrity is a key value for me “I am less likely to let things drift if I share my plans and intentions with someone.”
Ian Kirk, Opportunity Marketing
“My TAB Board helped me through a very difficult period with another business I was running. They gave me sound advice on dealing with the other shareholders, meaning the outcome was much better than it might otherwise have been.”
David Abbott, Insight Best Practice
“To share my years of experience and help others with their business challenges is very cathartic and rewarding.”
Bob Howden, Grass Concrete Ltd
“My experience as a TAB member has had a very positive impact on my business and on my own personal development. The monthly board meetings provide an opportunity to draw on the experience and fresh perspectives of other business owners and hold me accountable to taking the necessary action required to achieve my goals. The one to one support, and using the planning tools has enabled me to stand back and look at what I want in my life and how best to achieve this in my business”.
John Seddon, Allied Computer Solutions
“I have worked for AES for 20 years and I assumed full ownership and control of the business, following a 5 year management buy-out. I joined TAB with the expectation that it would provide me with an opportunity to discuss, implement and manage changes that would allow the business to grow, with the support and experience of other business owners. During the last 12 months that I have been a member, TAB has been a vital resource to challenge my ideas and enable me to make better decisions. Working on a Business Advisory Board with other like-minded business owners from various sectors has enabled me to access support, experience and knowledge to help me to run my company.”
