There’s no doubt that being a member of TAB has saved me money. My TAB board members have given me advice and suggested things I might do that I would never have thought of myself. What I really like is that everyone is so open. There are no clashes, no one competes, everyone just wants to help one another... and importantly, it all stays in the room!
TAB has helped me with some delicate issues I’d been shying away from, or just wouldn’t have thought to address, I was constantly fighting fires but now I have the right people and procedures in place, and I am no longer just working in the business, I have time to work on my business.
TAB gives me a monthly task of thinking about a very specific part of my business. Without it, some of these issues may never get my fuller attention and with it, the attention of others. It motivates me to talk about things you may not want to discuss in the business. The sounding board, confirmation of my thinking, motivation to ‘get on with it’ are all very valuable to me. Honesty and an objective view to a sole owner is valuable in a quantitative way.
I have a debt of gratitude to TAB after a 400% turnover boost. I can’t speak highly enough of The Alternative Board. It has made a huge difference to our agency. It’s something I would encourage business owners to think about. We wouldn’t have been able to achieve the growth we have without TAB.
My working life before TAB was extremely challenging and often pretty lonely. It’s often obvious what needs to be done within a business, but TAB gives you the confidence, support, and momentum to take action. The monthly meetings challenge you. I’d have no hesitation in recommending TAB. It has changed my working life – which in turn has made me a happier person.
