Jon began his career as a programmer, but was unusual in that he chose to become deeply knowledgeable about technology generally. Working in various industries, Jon increased his technology skills and then applied that same passion for learning about various types of businesses.
Several years ago, Jon began his own business as a management consultant, working with clients on technology and business process issues in order to increase productivity and profitability. His clients have included small, medium, and large businesses across a wide variety of fields.
He has felt gratified and excited to help many small businesses in TAB achieve their goals of improving processes; streamlining workflow; doing the tough job of dealing with difficult employees, and the wonderful work of dealing with excellent employees; instilling in business owners the knowledge that the ethical way of running a business is the most profitable way of running a business.
There is a tendency to put off the difficult problems. One of Jon’s most important skills is to be at the side of the TAB client for tackling problems; spotting previously unseen opportunities; and bringing his fresh view.
TAB meetings are at the heart of why TAB exists — to fulfill this much-needed gap in resources available to small businesses. Getting access to a supportive and knowledgeable Board of one’s peers is priceless.
He equally enjoys — and is highly skilled at — monthly one on one consulting with each individual TAB Member.
Jon is highly qualified in his role as a TAB Facilitator and grateful to be in the company of so many small business owners. TAB is a company based on the ethical approach of giving its members something of value in the real world, something they need — access to an active and helpful Board consisting of other TAB Members, with Jon as TAB Facilitator. Large corporations sometimes have figureheads, sometimes real members, usually highly paid individuals. TAB Board Members are truly helpful to each other. Jon makes sure the monthly TAB Board meetings and monthly one on ones are dynamic and helpful to members’ individual problem-solving and goals.
