TAB Leeds Central

Paul Dickinson and Jo Clarkson brought The Alternative Board “TAB” to the UK in 2009 as the first phase of TAB’s global expansion. Since 2009 “TAB” has been established in New Zealand, Australia, Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic and Ireland. Paul and Jo sold the UK business in February 2017.

Paul and Jo continue to be part of the TAB community as owners of the TAB Leeds Central region.
TAB is a global organisation with over 25 years experience in bringing together owners of privately held businesses to overcome challenges and seize new opportunities with a combination of peer advice and business coaching.

Board members meet monthly to learn from one another’s successes and mistakes to improve their business performance.

Business development sessions outside the board focus on personal goals, strategic planning and business goals ensuring members get the most from the board sessions and the invaluable business advice from fellow members.
