Why us?

I've been involved in trying to make a difference in education. You're probably the best that I've seen.

Back in 2009, Gavin Oattes, Alan Burton and Dougie Clark took over Tree of Knowledge and started reshaping us into the company we are today. Determined to reinvigorate the industry, they wanted to build a business that would challenge the views of traditional motivational speaking and training, bringing about an entertaining, enlightening and educational revolution.

Promoting the importance of fun and working within a broad range of learning environments, we have helped over 1,000,000 young learners, students, teachers and employees to improve their attainment, productivity, and to get the most out of their lives.

Why us?

At Tree of Knowledge we passionately believe in the tangible benefits that first class motivational speaking, team building and management workshops can bring. We believe that schools and businesses prosper when their people are happy, engaged and motivated. We believe that people are more likely to fulfil their dreams when feeling confident and empowered. Through humour, encouragement and inspiration we can improve the present and help shape a better future for all.

That's why our vision is to inspire the world.

Why education?

We want to make a difference to the world we live in and to do so, we believe we need to encourage, empower and motivate forthcoming generations. We deliver fun, continuous, sustainable learning that helps pupils and teachers share knowledge and work together. Whether it be team building games, enterprise courses, confidence building, or simple motivational speaking, we passionately want to help schools raise attainment and support young people make the most out of their lives.

Why employability?

In order to truly give every person the best possible chance of finding a sustainable career we create and deliver world class vocational education and training allowing individuals to develop a range of skills they will need in the world of work, meaning that learning is seamlessly aligned with employers and potential employee’s needs. Our unique programmes have inspired long term school refusers to re-engage with education, they’ve helped the unemployed gain employment and ultimately supported people destined for negative destinations move towards a positive one. TOK’s extensive knowledge of both the education and business sectors really help us to make a sustainable difference.
