Who we are

tradesecrets transforms businesses with a fresh approach to organisational development and change. Formed in 1996, we apply insights from the creative arts, particularly the theatre, to enhance the way people think and act at work.

What we do

Over the past ten years, successful companies have come to recognise the short term impact of development programmes. Programmes that in the main acknowledge the benefit and power of healthy teams working together.

Our approach builds on this activity and recognises that the creative arts can be an effective means of bringing to life dull or difficult issues and through the use of humour can help highlight the need for change (offer more than just evenings of song and dance at the odd special corporate function.)

Using artists from all the creative disciplines who bring fresh energy, enthusiasm and insights into corporate working practices we help individuals and teams at all levels interact and communicate key messages in a more dynamic and impactful way.

When we do it

Businesses are continually exposed to change. We are particularly helpful when there is a blockage in the thinking or a short space of time to turn a situation around that demands a bit of creative and courageous thought.

We are very good at asking the tough questions in a sometimes hostile environment.

How we do it

We are not in the business of telling you what to do. We are in the business of getting inside your head, listening to your needs, and matching these needs with the expectations of the individuals involved. It is our ability to think and feel from two perspectives, from the point of view of the message giver and the listener that means our work is effective.

The training programmes, workshops, events and coaching sessions we deliver are all designed around askng four key questions:

  • Who are you?
  • What is your business about?
  • Where do you want to take your people?
  • Do you know how you want to take them there?

From here we build a suitable program, event or course designed to answer your needs.
