South Herts

Your South Herts facilitator

Andrew Butchart is a seasoned facilitator and business coach specialising in supporting business owners in the South Herts region through The Alternative Board (TAB).

With over 25 years of experience as a business leader, Andrew has personally witnessed the triumphs and trials of entrepreneurship. He successfully founded and grew an IT consultancy and later transitioned to senior sales management and alliance roles in start-up hi-tech companies.

Passionate about sharing his wealth of personal and professional experience, Andrew dedicates himself to helping business owners improve their ventures and transform their lives for the better. At TAB, he finds the perfect avenue to fulfil this passion.

Combining entrepreneurial flair with sound business acumen, Andrew brings a unique perspective to his role as a TAB coach and facilitator. He understands that leaders at all stages of their business journey can benefit from investing time working on their business rather than merely in it. Whether you are running a newly established business or managing a renowned brand, Andrew's expertise can guide you toward growth and success.

TAB offers a supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere, providing business owners with high-quality, unbiased advice. By joining one of Andrew's TAB peer boards, consisting of six non-competing business owners, members gain fresh perspectives, collective support, constructive feedback, and ongoing accountability.

Members also engage in monthly one-on-one coaching sessions with Andrew, where they collaborate to create a personal vision and develop a comprehensive action plan to achieve their business goals. From targeting business growth and strategising a successful exit to finding a harmonious work-life balance, Andrew supports business owners in discovering a more fulfilling and rewarding way of operating.

What sets TAB apart from traditional business coaches and consultants is its unique approach. TAB focuses on the business owner, incorporating personal goals and vision into shaping business strategies. Additionally, the peer board dynamic provides access to over 100 years of diverse business experience, enabling members to address commercial challenges and seize opportunities with confidence.

If you are ready to unlock the full potential of your business and life, contact Andrew today to explore how TAB membership can propel you toward success.

Our members are stronger together

"TAB has given me coaching sessions, focusing on the positive elements of my business and helping to grow and develop during what is probably the most difficult trading period we have encountered. TAB has also invited me to a monthly board meeting where I joined six existing members, all of whom have extensive business experience and have provided me with some invaluable advice, guidance and accountability."

Kelly Smith, Juice Personnel

"Before TAB, I didn’t really have anyone I could talk to about business issues. Getting reassurance from my board on things I’m thinking of doing gives me more confidence to get on with it. I really value the openness of my board and facilitator, which allows me to say what I’m feeling and thinking.  I’m now making longer-term plans and decisions about the business.  As a result, I enjoy running the business more because I know we’re heading in the direction, rather than focusing on short-term fixes."

Geoff Hunt, Hey Group

"TAB is an independent thought process, away from the influences and pressures of work. In the day-to-day job, you can get drawn into distractions, you often don’t have time to think, and you’re just firefighting problems. However, with TAB, getting out of the office and speaking with the board for the 3-4 hours we have together allows me to think more independently."

David Scalley, AJT Engineering

"I always feel uplifted and more confident following a board meeting.  The challenges we face as business owners are invariably those shared by the other board members. Bringing them to the table puts them in perspective and usually provides several options on how to tackle them.  Support, being non-judgemental and really trying to understand each other's businesses help make the meetings fun, enjoyable and, most of all, invaluable to the growth and well-being of my own business.  The regular one-to-ones help build on this with tough constructive advice.  I would be lost without the support of TAB."

Jan Buckett , JMB Accounting

"Having a Peer Board is an amazing asset to me. It’s a safe and supportive environment where you get the support of other business owners who are committed to your success. It’s allowing me to be candid and get different views on sorting out knotty problems."

Professor Deborah Eyre, High Performance Learning

"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."
