I have been a part of The Alternative Board for six months now. During that time I have found Jonathan's help and guidance invaluable and the feedback from by TAB board incredibly useful. I am making ongoing changes in my business as a result which is already yielding positive results so highly recommend both Jonathan and the TAB set up.

Debbie Staveley, bClear Communications

Jonathan is a man who brings a depth of experience and wisdom to any business challenge. He is a very good listener, and he is able to ask the right questions and get you to a better solution. Jonathan is very efficient, personable and someone who can be trusted to deliver on his promises. I have no hesitation in recommending Jonathan and the work that he does with The Alternative Board.

Ed Rowberry, Bristol & Bath Regional Capital

I joined TAB some months ago and not really sure what I or my company would gain from this experience but I have been delighted with the outcomes so far. My monthly one-to-one meetings are extremely productive. It's a mixture of mentoring/coaching and one's own conscience. You can talk to him with total discretion and no inhibitions that you could not with your Chair or your partner. Then there are the Boards where you get sound advice on issues that are concerning you from many different perspectives and you learn from their own problems and others advice. A truly good experience and well worth the investment. On top of it all, Jonathan is a delightful and personable chap who is very good at what he does.

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.

Mike Hodge, CIM Logic

Jonathan has been coaching me for a year now and I wanted to endorse his work as I know it can be hard to demonstrate making a difference as a coach. Working with Jonathan and TAB has been most helpful for me and my business. I find the combination of working with Jonathan on a 121 basis and meeting the board every month particularly useful and it has changed the way I approach many things in my business.

A few specific things I found helpful is the development of financial tools such as cashflow forecast and the facilitation of planning which promoted additional growth in the business. I now find myself working on the business a lot more which has helped me firm up key processes and systems. I would recommend Jonathan and TAB to businesses of all sizes who want to develop and grow the organisation.
