Mark provides a rare combination of executive business coaching and peer board mentoring through The Alternative Board. Depending on the topic at hand, the Board offers practical, to-the-point suggestions, while at the same time triggering broader introspection. Attending the Boards and the 1-to-1s with Mark is an excellent way to critically examine oneself and come back to the company with a fresh perspective.
Since joining TAB in July I have met some very interesting and highly experienced people across a multitude of industries. United in a common cause of optimising our business’ performance, being able to get feedback and advice from a room (or zoom) of experienced hands is invaluable. Furthermore the consulting/coaching element of the 1 to 1’s with Mark Kane has allowed me to refocus and actually be accountable to someone, which is wholly refreshing having been my own boss for 12 years! For me it’s not so much the cost of doing it but the cost of not doing it which is the key factor. I think my business has benefited massively from my involvement and I would recommend it to anyone looking to improve their business.

I joined Mark’s TAB in 2020, unsure of the value it would bring. The format is interesting because it brings together individuals with similar issues, but from completely different industries. It turns out that having the ability to get feedback, advice and recommendations from peers who aren’t involved in your own business is pretty powerful. The forum has led me to try new approaches and suppliers in my own business that I wouldn’t have otherwise considered and we’re now seeing the benefits flow through, after only 6 months of membership. Mark handles TAB very professionally and has a lot of measured advice to offer, too. I would certainly recommend him and the TAB format to others in a similar position.

I joined The Alternative Board, run locally by Mark, approximately a year ago. Mark encouraged me to look at different ways of addressing my various business problems. The 1:1 sessions were very useful for discussing immediate business issues and Mark always had an alternative way of looking and addressing those issues. Mark structures the Board Meetings in a highly professional manner ensuring that we all were able to make our contributions, and which enabled us all to progress with working through our business challenges. Furthermore from a CPD perspective, being involved to contribute to other Board Members’ business issues was rewarding because I could draw from a long business career in different sectors.
