Why should you join The TAS Network?

TAS is a network for Training and Support for is members, you have probably heard of The TAS Network, our name is often mentioned at Society meetings or maybe at an IPW conference. We all know that running an independent Will Writing and Estate planning firm can be lonely. The buck stops with you and there is rarely anyone to turn to for support. Yet how can you possibly know everything?

Members of TAS are the most respected practitioners currently working at the coal face of our profession. They see clients daily and they face many of the same issues that you do. The difference that TAS Network membership makes to their business is marked. They have access to the ‘hive mind’ of some of the leading thinkers from our industry.

The TAS network was established in 2004 by a group of forward thinking Will Writers. Since that date it has grown through its commitment to quality training, sharing of ideas and best practice amongst its members.

TAS network membership currently sits at around 20 firms and we are looking for a limited number of like minded people to join our group as we plan together for the future challenges that our profession will face. Ideally we would like to cover the whole of England and Wales so that the national contracts that we service are best met.

Our Members Say

“I attend my TAS meeting regularly, despite it being a 4 hour drive each way for me to get there, as the effort is a “no-brainer” for me. The very thought of missing out on any content from the training day or the chance to discuss specific client or business issues, would make me feel I wasn’t giving the very best to my clients. It is the most important training resource for my business.”
LEAH HAMILTON • FAMILY WILLS
“It can be lonely as a sole trader, but at TAS I have a group of colleagues – actually friends – who support me. We do our training days and share best practice and business ideas and solutions to problems. My friends at TAS are generous with time, and I know i can always ask for advice. Especially if I buy them a drink in the bar! I have been writing Wills for 20 years, but would have not lasted this long without TAS.”
CHERRY SHEIL • CARDINAL WILLS

“I have only been a member of the TAS network for a year but I, and my business, are already benefitting from the high quality of training at TAS meetings. One of the most worthwhile sessions is “members technical queries” where issues are analysed and discussed in great detail amongst the group so that we all benefit from the wealth of knowledge and experience of the network.”

HUGH GOODALE • CASEY AND ASSOCIATES

“For me, TAS gives a direct and quick route to a wealth of knowledge and experience and gives me the invaluable “peace of mind” of knowing that I can get help from other members and the legal department, when I sometimes need to have my ideas or precedents checked.”

JOHN FROMMONT• WILLS PLUS LTD

“TAS is important for my business, It gives me access to the finest ‘hive mind’ in terms of estate planners when I get an issue I can’t resolve myself. It’s training and support days are the best that I have attended. We are a great bunch of people and the social moments are really enjoyable. Who you hang around with matters and with TAS you know that you are with the best.”
