Your North Staffordshire business coach
and board facilitator

I have a 25-year track record in supporting business in delivering success by advising them on identifying and managing the opportunities and uncertainties they face.  Many of those will be like opportunities and challenges you face today.

For me, TAB provides the means for business owners to tap into that experience in taking on their business opportunities and challenges.  At the same time, as a TAB Member, you can gain knowledge and experience from like-minded, non-competing peers combining our collective experience to take your business growth to the next level.

I am a business owner in North Staffordshire and Stoke with strong links to the local community, including as a Council Member at Keele University.  Having seen TAB boards in action I know they can provide your business with a driving force to support delivery of your business growth and personal objectives.

Having worked as a business consultant with nearly 30 businesses across North Staffordshire, I'm proud of the value my members get from being part of TAB. Through the boards and the business coaching and consultancy I provide in Stoke and North Staffordshire, I am keen to help more local business owners achieve their personal vision and business success.
