About us

Tactician started 6 years ago. Our goal has always been to do the people stuff differently – training that gives people skills they can put into practice straight away; HR that takes into account that you have a business to run; coaching that’s there when you need it – that sort of thing.

The name ‘Tactician’ came from the yacht racing world – the tactician on a yacht is right by the skipper‘s side, advising on the tactics needed to win the race. They help the skipper successfully execute the long-term race strategy – we reckoned lots of people in business could do with their own tactician.

Over the years, we’ve become known and respected for our honest and direct guidance and our pragmatic approach. They’re the basis of all we do. We challenge you, but if you’ve got the guts, working with us is the catalyst for lasting change.

Finally, we should probably mention the animals.  We often get asked, “what’s with the animals?”. There are lots of answers (it’s a long story), but let’s just say they’re quirky, a bit different, and very engaging. Like us.

All of our Tacticians are business people themselves – they’ve run their own businesses and been leaders in large organisations – so they really understand the challenges our clients face.
