Products and Services
THE ALTERNATIVE BOARD believes that our approach to, and tools offered to private businesses owners, provides them with the QUAD-FECTA of support to run their businesses. The four main pillars of our QUAD-FECTA are:
• PEER ADVISORY BOARDS
Monthly confidential meeting of non-competitive business owners to discuss real-life opportunities, challenges and topics that will individually enable each member to strategically run their business.
• PRIVATE COACHING
Monthly private coaching meetings, where we guide business owners on planning and running their businesses towards achieving their personal and company goals.
• PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE & TOOLS
TAB has developed the Business Builder’s Blueprint™ as an exclusive online system – an entrepreneurial MRI. It not only helps plan the business but monitors progress on execution thereof on ongoing basis. Additionally, within the Blueprint, TAB Connect links each of our Members to more than 4,000 other business owners globally to access their inputs on specific topics that our members individually may experience.
StratPro is TAB’s strategic business transformation process for owners and their management teams. This is where strategy meets productivity. StratPro consists of multiple workshops and planning session, exclusive to the leadership team of a business. Through StratPro we align the vision, communication, planning and execution of business strategy, thereby aligning the management team to work towards a common goal and leading the business to improved productivity and greater profitability.
Further to our QUAD-FECTA, TAB gives business owners access to Strategic Consulting, Training and Professional Networking.
TAB Franchise Owners advises business owners beyond coaching; we clarify their personal visions and align their businesses to achieve those goals. We change the operating rhythm of the business.

TAB Franchise Owners are uniquely positioned to succeed in a constantly evolving business environment thanks to our committed support, both in-person and virtual. We have crafted systems and protocols to ensure an effective digital experience across all our offerings. TAB has streamlined your ability to connect with your clients and TAB community, even online.
During our intensive and interactive initial training, our national and global team will guide you step-by-step through the essential areas of:
• Marketing for and acquisition of new Members
• Interviewing and signing new Members
• Strategies for Board composition
• Using the full range of TAB’s proprietary tools, including the Business Builder’s Blueprint™
• Facilitation techniques

All our training is highly participative. We are firm believers that to truly learn something, you must do it for yourself that's why we do our strategic planning on the Business Builder's Blueprint™. We also provide ongoing advanced training to TAB Franchise Owners, continually enhancing their coaching and facilitation skills, as well as offering training to certify as a StratPro™ facilitator.
Our training programme ensures new Franchise Owners are confident and capable from the very beginning.
We support you in recruiting Members to establish TAB Member Boards and in providing the full range of TAB services to retain those Members for the long term. Our global Net-Promoter-Score is 9.0/10 which indicates the level of satisfaction of clients receive from TAB. Additionally, our average client retention is 4.9 years which significantly underlines the value added to the lives of these business owners and their companies.
Together with a TAB Franchise Owner’s initial training, we guide them through their marketing planning, using our Integrated Member Acquisition Programme (“IMAP”) whereby we help them craft their marketing strategy for success. This is monitored monthly for at least the first 12 months to ensure our new Franchise Owners remain dedicated to their own planning and success. In addition, TAB requires our Franchise Owners to participate in their own peer boards as well as encourage them to attend a multitude of webinars and community calls where international best practice is shared amongst our more than 400 global TAB Franchise Owners.
Contribution to global Marketing Development Fund of 2%.
Monthly administration fee per member that covers all costs towards your CRM system and software tools. Our local head-office administers all invoicing and collections on behalf of our Franchise Owners, that frees them to focus on running their TAB franchise businesses, which is why they joined us in the first place, not to do admin.
There is no right or wrong background to come from to be a successful TAB Franchise Owner. There is no golden qualification or former corporate position held that will make you a great success as a TAB Franchise Owner. The only thing guaranteed to ensure your success is you.
TAB Franchise Owners come from a wide variety of backgrounds. A typical new TAB owner was previously a successful executive in a large company or an owner of another business or a strategic business consultant. Many new TAB owners that have an existing consulting business join TAB to serve as a complement to their existing business. As with any business, what you get out depends on what you put in.
Our most successful Franchise Owners are:
• Self-motivated with the drive to succeed
• Compelling communicators
• Passionate about helping fellow business owners
• Committed to achieving personal and professional growth through tenacity and hard work
Our ideal candidates are transitioning executives, experienced consultants, and former business owners with significant business experience in a senior-level role. Regardless of specific background, however, we provide a comprehensive training and support programme to assist candidates to be successful as TAB Franchise Owners.
