The Alternative Board Franchise

Peer advisory boards and executive coaching for business owners, CEOs and presidents

The Alternative Board offers consultants, business owners, and transitioning corporate executives the opportunity to earn significant income from facilitating executive peer boards and coaching local business owners and leaders using TAB's proprietary tools to help companies achieve greater success.
As TAB-Certified Facilitator/Coaches, franchisees facilitate monthly peer advisory board meetings where, based on the collective experience of the board, members receive real-world solutions and practical advice on how to solve challenges and seize new opportunities.

Founder, Allen Fishman, began developing the peer board concept after he guided his electronics firm from a private to a public company. The organization has expanded to benefit thousands of businesses throughout the world.
