The Red Thread Partnership

We get out of bed every morning to make a difference to the organisations we work with and the people who work within these businesses. We have a passion for improvement, change, engagement, culture – but most of all we have a passion for enabling people to be the best they can be – young or old!

We think “being the best you can be” means organisations should not only invest in and develop their people, but also help support and improve the communities in which they and their families live – that’s why we created The Red Thread Fellowship programme.

Over the years we have worked with many organisations to try and make a difference by creating engagement programmes that instil deep values inside businesses, but also have an impact on local projects through the activities participants do. Such community based activities are a great learning opportunity and also emphasise the link between high performance and social impact.

The award-winning Fellowship is the spirit of our brand and was the first step towards our vision to create a better world through great and inspiring leadership. So who are we? Well we are a combination of great people who share some great values.

Our Values


We have honest conversations. We will share what we see, think or feel and won’t shy away from difficult issues, even if it means saying we can’t help you.


We deliver effective and efficient solutions. Solutions that provide real value and help you do what you do best – better. This means using the best person, method, model or tool we can find.


We are open-hearted with our time and ideas. We’ll engage and work with you, share our thinking, listen to yours and create what is best for you. We make ourselves available to have conversations with you and your people when you want to.


We think about what we do; and we think about you as individuals. We will be considerate in our dealings with you and your colleagues, recognising that you have feelings and that sometimes development can be uncomfortable and personally challenging and therefore needs to be done with care.


We will work though the difficult moments. We will go beyond what is necessary and find what is great – we won’t give up on you just because it gets hard.


We do this because we want to. It’s what we do, it’s our life and who we are.
