We are delighted to have advised Talking Talent Holdings Limited on their investment from Bridges Fund Management

Talking Talent is a market-leading, multinational business that helps organisations to build more inclusive, equitable, opportunity-filled work cultures. They do this through the delivery of transformative coaching programmes for diverse talent and leadership consulting. Leveraging its network of specialist, qualified coaches, and scalable digital platform, the systemic nature of their programmes is highly differentiated in the coaching market. 

Having created a highly successful, impact-driven business, the shareholders were seeking a strategic partner to help accelerate their ambition to become a globally recognised, market leading consultancy, actively leaving the world a better place. 

We were appointed by the shareholders of Talking Talent to act as lead advisor on the sale of the company due to our extensive experience in the human capital sector along with our track record of advising vendors on successful exits.  

Our M&A team provided full project management services from start to finish, with a comprehensive preparation phase to attract credible offers and maximise shareholder value. Our ‘one-stop-shop’ approach and deep sector knowledge ensured a smooth transaction through to completion.  


The Grant Thornton team were terrific advisors to help us find the right partner for the next stage of growth at Talking Talent. Their expertise in the human capital market is second to none. Their ability to understand the importance of the Talking Talent purpose and culture, helped us to find the right investment partner in Bridges. This new investment will enable us to develop our platform and support more clients, furthering our mission to create a more inclusive world where people and business can thrive. It’s a very exciting future.
