The Alternative Board offers necessary support to businesses

The Alternative Board offers necessary support to businesses

Ed Reid of TAB UK believes that collaboration will be the key to franchise success in 2023

Ed Reid, managing director of The Alternative Board (TAB) UK, says that SMEs and franchisees must take a collaborative approach to leadership if they wish to achieve business success in 2023. TAB franchisees have attracted an influx of new members as commercial conditions harden, with more business leaders seeking the peer board support which TAB offers.

Over 2,000 UK companies have already signed up to the franchise’s collaborative approach to leadership and are supercharging their businesses through participating in regular peer board gatherings organised by TAB. These allow business owners, in communities across the UK, to work together and share commercial concerns and ambitions with local peers in a trusted space.

Participating companies are reaping the advantages of opening their businesses up to this level of external input, with 80 per cent of organisations reporting revenue growth since joining. Ed believes this approach could help more companies overcome tough economic conditions this year.

He says: “SMEs and indeed franchisees will all have challenges to overcome in 2023, and it can be incredibly lonely facing those alone and having to justify big decisions to your stakeholders or employees. What I have witnessed over the past year, and what is making an incredible difference to the business community, is sharing those commercial issues and working together on solutions. It is almost impossible to step back from your own business and identify where change needs to happen so taking advice from professional peers who have their own expertise can be transformational.

“By embracing our entrepreneurial spirit across the UK and working together to support one another, business owners can ensure they make the right decisions. TAB’s business advisory boards offer the perfect forum for this, allowing members to share commercial and even personal challenges with business owners from an array of industries. This enables them to set achievable goals for the year ahead and be accountable to their peers through regularly scheduled meetings.”

UK business owners, from businesses with five employees to those with a multi-million turnover, have benefited from TAB. TAB members’ revenue growth between 2020 and 2021 averaged an impressive 28.4 per cent, and Ed is looking forward to helping more local businesses succeed this year.

He continues: “It is going to be an interesting year for businesses across the country, whether old or newly established. Some of our members have faced recessions before while others have never experienced the commercial pressures that economic changes such as rising interest rates can bring. My message to them all is that you are not in this alone, come and meet your counterparts in a relaxed environment and let’s work together to keep your goals on track this year.”
