Chamber welcomes TAB (The Alternative Board) Derby as new patron

TAB (The Alternative Board) Derby has become a patron of the Chamber.


From offices in Derby, Julian Smith and Jimi Ball, provide business owners and leaders with support from peer advisory boards and one-to-one coaching.


The boards comprise business owners who need to bounce off people in similar situations – away from the environment of their own companies.


They help them focus on what they are trying to achieve in their business life and outside it.


Over 30 years, TAB has worked with thousands of forward-thinking owners and helped them grow their businesses, increase profitability and improve their lives.


Clients participate in monthly boards and one-to-one sessions and take advantage of TAB’s great business tools and services to improve corporate performance and achieve a better work-life balance.


TAB Derby has operated since March 2010 and worked with businesses across a broad number of sectors, including retail, marketing, manufacturing and accountancy, and training companies.


Chamber Chief Executive Scott Knowles said: “I am delighted to welcome TAB Derby into patronage. Chamber patrons are a powerful force in influencing policy, driving economic growth and development and equipping smaller businesses with the knowledge and skills that are vital to their future.


“TAB will bring to the Chamber skills and expertise to complement those of the other patrons to evolve something which is, together, greater than the sum of its parts.”


Julian Smith, owner of TAB Derby said: “This is a really big step for us and we are delighted to have been able to become a patron of the Chamber. Having worked with Scott and the team over a number of years, we are well aware of the fantastic support and help Chamber members receive.


"We look forward to adding even greater depth to its offer."


The Chamber now has 28 patrons, including Nottingham Forest Football Club, PKF Cooper Parry, QDOS, The Money Shop, Toyota Manufacturing UK, Westfield Health and Wilko.
