We love to problem solve. So, working together, we’ll unpick your challenges and agree the best solutions. Then we’ll roll up our sleeves and make a meaningful difference to your world.

Our approach

the-thread is an employee engagement and experience consultancy and we focus on four key services: communication, culture, transformation and leadership. We offer strategic planning, immersive workshops and events, and campaign and content delivery across all four areas.

Our brilliant team of specialists bring insights and inspiration from diverse perspectives. From communications, creative techniques and change management to storytelling, improvisation and mind training – we deliver intelligent, mind-opening experiences that achieve the outcomes you need to drive a strong and sustainable business.


As workplaces evolve, spanning generations, working patterns and cultures, it gets harder and harder for businesses to connect their fragmented audiences through communication. How can professional communicators make sure their strategies, tools and campaigns engage everyone?

If you need to assess the comms environment, hone your communication strategy, or boost your comms team’s capabilities, we’ll help you to better resonate when you Communicate:

  • Internal communications and engagement auditing
  • Insight-driven strategy, planning and delivery
  • Upskilling and coaching for communicators


You know things can’t go on as they are. Whether it’s to deliver a new strategy, to integrate your business after an acquisition or restructure, or simply to improve the bottom line, behaviour and culture needs to change. But culture is a funny, intangible thing. The more you try to pin it down, the more it evades you.

If you know that there’s a gap between aspiration and reality in the way your people behave, interact and make decisions, we’ll help you move your Culture in the right direction:

  • Cultural auditing to map your communication and leadership levers
  • Pragmatic strategies that work within your existing channels
  • Immersive and bottom-up storytelling for a culture that sticks


Transformation isn’t about new technologies, systems or processes alone; it’s about people. Preparing them with the right mindset for change and empowering them with the skills to own it.

If you’re struggling to get your people on board with continuous change, we’ll connect people to the potential that comes when you Transform:

  • Change communications and engagement programmes that connect heads, hearts and hands
  • Resilience training for teams to maintain momentum through change and transformation
  • Certified expertise in change management


Some see leadership as a destination, we see it as a journey – one on which we’re always learning. Disruption, uncertainty, hybrid working styles, the reality of diversity; leaders are faced with an ever-changing landscape to navigate and lead their teams through with confidence.

If you’re concerned that your leaders’ engagement styles just don’t work for the world we’re in today, we’ll help you to ensure that people feel engaged and inspired by those that Lead:

  • One-to-one coaching on personal communication style and techniques
  • Supporting leadership teams to communicate in an aligned and impactful way
  • Engaging tactics for one-to-many, remote communication
