About us in a nutshell

Training EventThrive is a training and consultancy company founded by Matthew Critchlow.

We deliver essential skills for high performance in the workplace.

Our expertise includes employee engagement, wellbeing and resilience, communication, team working and leadership.

Our programmes are memorable, effective and fun. But don’t just take it from us, see what our clients have to say: testimonials.

Why are we different?

  • We use evidenced-based approaches – Our courses are based on science, especially positive psychology, neuroscience and evidence-based management (EBMgt). From all these disciplines we use tools and techniques that are proven to work.
  • We’re passionate about our art – The best facilitators apply skills that go beyond science. Creating the best learning environment is as much art as it is science. And we pride ourselves in working with some of the best facilitators in the business. Meet Our Team
  • We offer hands-on corporate experience – All of our consultants have years of hands-on experience in leading organisations like Pret A Manger, Eli Lilly and Thomson Holidays .  So we bring real-world solutions into everything we do.
  • We’re small enough to care, large enough to deliver – We’re a small consultancy company with a large network of experienced associates. We offer true consultancy not just “off-the-shelf” training. We work as business partners with our clients to deliver tailor-made highly effective programmes.
