Our members are stronger together
I recommend TAB to any business. I can’t see a scenario why you don’t think you would need to join unless you’re the kind of individual that thinks you know it all. I would suggest that those individuals bottleneck their own businesses. If you’re looking for a path to growth, you have to be open-minded and take on the advice and views of a wide variety of people and TAB gives you access to those views.
Many thanks to Dave, for the time invested with CimLogic via TAB. Being part of a ‘relevant’ network has made an extreme difference to the way we do business. I have saved money, paid less tax, received better service from existing suppliers, and been able to us a wide range of new business services which I didn’t even know existed. Well done Dave & TAB – much appreciated.
Dave has been a great mentor and advisor over the years, helping me navigate many tricky business hurdles and being on hand to give sound business advice and personal mentoring. I guess what stands Dave apart from other advisors is he really cares. I don't think he could take you on as a client if he didn't and that means he goes the extra mile. He has a wealth of knowledge and a huge black book of other trusted experts he can point you if he can't help.
Dave is a pleasure to deal with and a fantastic professional. With the help of Dave and one of the advisory peer board’s that he set up, our business has gone from strength to strength. Can’t recommend him highly enough. I wish I hadn’t been so stubborn and would have joined years before I did. Everything is easier with good support and guidance!
TAB is a challenging environment and it pushes you to keep on with your plans, gives you clarification that what you're doing is right. The support from like-minded people, that challenge it keeps you going, keeps you pushing forward, gives you the sense that you're doing the right things. And being able to give your advice to other people to help them is a rewarding thing. It's a two-way street and hopefully everybody gets something out of that. I certainly do!
