Clients Stories


Andrew HaighCoutts

We used Tradesecrets to help the leadership team communicate a significant change programme and take the staff affected on a journey to understand their own reactions to change. This had a significant impact to the point that staff still talk of the training and was probably one of the most effective pieces of training I have sourced. This reflects the trainers' innovative approach, ability to communicate and empathise and willingness to challenge.

I worked with tradesecrets to help develop my style of performance and presentation in relation to a new job I was applying for as CEO. Their guidance was invaluable in securing the position.
My high regard for their services is reflected in the fact I have now employed their services for coaching support within my organisation. I would recommend their thoughtful and dynamic services to any business that is interested in improving its results by enabling its staff to perform to their full potential.

David WallCEO Dusted

We asked tradesecrets to help consult on some of the dynamics and issues with our design team. We were very impressed with the consultancy we received and have subsequently implemented the recommendations in a way suited to our company culture and managerial approach.

Mark MoortonHead of HR at Accordance

tradesecrets have an uncanny knack at working in a very direct way with groups at the same time as paying attention to individuals, genuinely helping them through one on one coaching to set and achieve personal development goals.

Emmanuel TaharCEO Third Bridge

Sam and his colleagues at TradeSecrets are very effective at bringing teams together and helping them uncover ways to collaborate more effectively. A day of training with TradeSecrets is useful, entertaining, and delivers great ROI.

Sam spoke at a business dinner event we hosted for a group of local business leaders in Southampton. Right from the start, Sam captivated the audience and had them completely engaged. We've had a number of guest speakers at our dinners, but this was really something different and included practical exercises our guests were taking part in, at the dinner table. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed it and I would recommend Sam and his team to anyone. The communication training is excellent and Sam takes a completely refreshing approach to it.

Mark MoortonHead of HR at Accordance

I am delighted to recommend Sam. I have worked with Sam now on numerous assignments over the last seven years or so and his approach and that of his organisation, tradesecrets, to the problems that I have presented to him have always been carefully considered, solutions provided that are consistent with the needs of my organisation and outcomes that are tangible and long lasting. By far, the single best attribute that I would describe Sam is his high level of innovation but without a doubt, applied in a commercially understandable manner that simply adds great and long lasting value.

Catherine TurnerAssociate Relations Manager Capital One

From the moment we met, I knew tradesecrets understood the brief and its purpose and the passion you displayed to bring my vision to life blew me away. Watching you in action, interacting with the team and giving direction to ensure the project achieved its aim was amazing. You have a natural gift of getting under the skin of an organisation, acting as an ambassador of the brand and delivering a training package that trumps all others. For this reason, I would recommend you to anyone and I hope we get to work together again soon.
