“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
As a TAB member, through the regular coaching sessions and monthly Board meetings, I gain invaluable mentor and peer support. The TAB ethos and coaching approach has helped me to plan personal and business goals and set direction. This is supported by the wealth of knowledge, skills, experience and support that is shared by the board who provide Impartial, informed and considered guidance and advice on all types of business issues, that enable me to gain fresh perspectives, identify blind spots and fill my skill gaps. Over the last twelve months TAB has effectively become my company’s non-executive board and its members my trusted colleagues.
Simon Banks, Sampson Timber Products
With each meeting at my TAB board I have become more convinced of its merit to anyone really wishing to grow or change their business. You get in-depth evaluation or your problems and excellent suggestions of how to solve them. However, the most important part is you are held to account. It is not just your issue that adds value to your experience, those of others are just as useful. I have found the experience invaluable in my journey through the start-up process. Having seasoned business owners to bounce ideas off and give robust feedback has been crucial to my confidence in my plans
Rob Shaw, The Cracking Egg Company
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.

Business Coaching and Mentoring
YOU’VE MADE IT TO THE TOP, NOW IT’S TIME TO GO EVEN HIGHER
As you know, life in business moves fast. This can leave you feeling reactive rather than proactive, not leading the way you want. If this sounds familiar, you’re ready for a fresh perspective and an objective sounding board to build on your strengths,develop your vision, focus your time and lead by example.
This is where our Management Coaching and Business Mentoring comes in. Each session is designed to give you the time and space you need to get that all-important clarity – to see exactly what you need to do to steer your business in the right direction.
YOU’RE NO STRANGER TO CHALLENGES
Coaching and Mentoring isn’t just about learning new skills and understanding alternative strategies, it’s about creating real solutions and a tangible plan to overcome challenges. One that you can use to map out your business goals, reach them and surpass them. Coaching and Mentoring from TAB is a no-nonsense approach to making your vision a reality.
Coaching and Mentoring is a great way of working towards:
IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE LONELY AT THE TOP
A board that understands the challenges you face
Your Advisory Board will be made up of around six fellow business owners that you’ll meet up with each month. They won’t have any vested interest so you can be sure you’re getting honest advice that will genuinely improve the way you run your business. Best of all, you’ll see the same faces at each meeting, so your board will get to know you and your business really well.
Every month you can talk through an issue or an opportunity that you’ve been met with. It gives you a fresh set of eyes, ears and opinions on the issues you have previously had to deal with on your own.
MAKING BUSINESS PERSONAL
Your one-to-one mentor
Your Coaching and Mentoring also includes a monthly 1-2-1 with your local TAB facilitator – your very own mentor on speed dial.
They are there to help you rediscover the excitement you had when you first set up your own business and remind you why you did it. They will also help to keep you focused, accountable and on track to achieve your goals.
