Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

New company set up after TAB Derby advice

A member of The Alternative Board Derby has been recognised for achieving her 2018 ambition of setting up her own company.

Holly Daulby of Derby-based Honest Communications was among the many recipients of awards at the special end-of-year TAB Member Event.

Awards and champagne were handed out to celebrate brilliant work in achieving business goals and personal ambitions.

Holly said:

“I joined TAB earlier in 2018 and the support from TAB’s Jimi Ball and my peer board helped me to take the leap and set up my own company in November.

“With the help of TAB I’ve now got big plans for 2019! The end of year event was a great way to get to meet other members and to celebrate the successes that everyone has experienced as a result of being part of TAB Derby.”

A member of the year was selected by peers from the boards which have supported and challenged each other throughout 2018.

Phil Hemmings, of CPL Print Ltd, Matt Key of Michael A Key Automotive Service and Repairs, Richard Vine of TecInteractive and Wendy Dent of Coes of Derby picked up their awards from TAB facilitators Julian Smith and Jimi Ball.

Meanwhile, Peter Edginton of Webro Cables also took a Board Member of the Year award and a five-year membership award but was, unfortunately, not present to pick them up.

Ashley Sowerby of Chevin Fleet Solutions was also honoured for his five years with TAB.

Meanwhile, there were much-deserved champagne awards to Andrew Sanderson, Richard Vine, Duncan Parker, Bradley Walters, and Holly Daulby.

TAB Derby’s managing director Julian also handed an award to fellow facilitator Jimi who joined him at the city franchise earlier this year.

Julian said:

“I am proud of the fantastic work of all our members in supporting each other in their business and personal spheres.

“Nobody has all the answers to life’s difficulties but our members have found that a problem shared often leads to a solution faster than ploughing on alone.

“I was very touched when Duncan, who has now done a deal to sell his business, has said he has gained three years of his life thanks to advice through TAB.”

The success of TAB is not just down to sound business support – it also focuses members on realising personal goals.

Julian added:

“Some of the awards were given to people who set out with ambitions for themselves and their family as well as their company.

“They have found themselves with a much more rounded life thanks to TAB membership.

“Jimi has given us an extra dimension and allowed us to expand our membership.

“TAB Derby is already the biggest of the 35 franchises in the country but, in 2019, we are looking for two more associates to grow TAB even further in the Midlands.”
