This is Thrive

Welcome to Thrive. We’re in the business of supporting personal and professional development.

Our mission is to help create a work environment where all employees can thrive.  We do this by offering training and coaching in areas such as employee engagement and wellbeing (e.g. resilience), diversity, communication and leadership.


What makes us different?

  • We use evidenced-based approaches – Our courses are based on science, especially Positive Psychology, Emotional Intelligence (EI) and the very latest Human Resources research.  From all these disciplines we use tools and techniques that are proven to work. If it’s not evidenced-based, we don’t use it.
  • We’re passionate about our art – the art of facilitation. The best facilitators apply skills that go beyond science … engaging with an audience to create the best learning environment is as much an art as it is a science. And we pride ourselves in working with some of the best in the business. Meet Our Team.
  • We offer hands-on corporate experience – All of our consultants have years of hands-on management experience in leading organisations like Pret A Manger, Eli Lilly, Pentland Group (Lacoste, Speedo and Berghaus), Thomson Holidays and the NHS.  So we bring real-world, pragmatic 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 dedicated, experienced associates. Our goal is to offer true consultancy not just “off-the-shelf” training. We like to work as business partners, spending time understanding our client’s needs so we can deliver the right programmes with the best results.

 What do our customers say?

I found the Goal Setting Workshop very inspiring. The workshop has highlighted that the key to goal setting is getting away from the pressures of the day and asking the question where do I want to be in 6 months, 1 year, 5 years from now and most importantly writing them down and constantly checking to see where I am against my goals and visualizing success.  I would recommended this course to anyone who is serious about achieving their goals.

Paul Scott, UK Civil Service

“Excellent facilitator. Professional, great knowledge, great sense of humour and able to connect on a number of levels and certainly made everyone feel completely comfortable and at ease. One of the best courses I have attended.”

“Matthew is brilliant … the delivery of the course (Building Personal Resilience) was executed very well.  Just truly brilliant – great food for thought and heart-warming, like chicken soup for the soul.”
