At thrive we value ongoing professional and personal development. Our events programme has been designed to tackle those challenges which affect the cultural sector collectively. They also provide space to be inspired by new ideas or have those productive 'coffee break' conversations...

But sometimes it has to be more about you – help to solve your individual challenge. We know everyone’s problems are different, so your session will be designed around your context, people and budget. 

To discuss your training needs with a member of the team please contact us.

Here are some examples of sessions we’ve designed and run recently.


If you haven’t heard about it already, the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR, becomes law in May 2018. Thrive will be running free sessions as part of its ongoing programme but if you’d like a session just for you and your team then we can facilitate that over a couple of hours depending on the size and scale of your organisation.  We will try and de-mystify GDPR and tell you what you need to know about the data you have from your customers, visitors and participants and what you will need to think and do to make sure you are compliant by the 2018 deadline.

Sessions are £100 + VAT
