Our members are stronger together

I felt I had made a success of growing my business from start-up to employing 100 people after 10 years, but that I needed something more to help me take it to the next level. Being a member of TAB has given me an external perspective from both my fellow board members and 1:1 coaching sessions which I was missing before. With their help I am better equipped to achieve the ambitions I have for my business. If you are anything like me you will quickly begin to see TAB as an investment in yourself and your business.

Luke Norbury, Home Instead

Personally, it has provided a clear pathway and my business has gone from strength to strength since I became a member of the TAB board.

Dawn Dines, SOS Global

TAB has been invaluable: what started as a support group has now developed into treasured friends whose experiences, ideas and contributions have helped overcome many challenges and stimulated both business and personal growth.
