The Alternative Board (TAB) started in 1990 in the US and launched in the UK in 2009. The brand, which has been running for over 30 years now, is currently in 24 countries, working with thousands of business owners of all shapes and sizes and supports a global network of over 300 franchisees (33 of which are in the UK).
What They Offer
TAB is the world’s largest peer-to-peer support and business coaching franchise. Franchisees bring together small groups of non-competing business owners, with no vested interest in each other’s businesses, in a group setting. Here, they help each other identify opportunities and solve business challenges.
Board meetings are held every month where members pool their knowledge and experience for the benefit of the group. Each board consists of up to eight business owners, managing directors and CEOs of privately-owned companies. The environment is confidential.
However, there are also 1-2-1s which are run with members. Here, franchisees help a business owner provide opportunities to keep them focused, accountable and on-track to achieve their goals.
Finally, there is the Business Builder’s Blueprint. TAB offers a proven strategic business planning process focused on delivering the business owner’s vision of leading a successful business while enjoying a strong work/life balance. The Blueprint helps clear up the strategic planning process. It is ideal for formulating a plan for success.
