I’m Craig Thompson. I founded Vibrant in 2015 out of a deep sense of frustration with the working world. I’ve worked across a lot of different industries, in a wide variety of roles and lived in four different countries. Seeing the system both from the eyes of an employee and the eyes of an employer trying to attract, develop and retain staff made it clear to me that the world of work is broken. But, it doesn’t have to be.
Work can be great and can do great things both for those who run companies and want them to be profitable and for those who work to make them that way; often putting in long hours for low pay, sacrificing so much time with their kids, family and friends, or from exploring the world – but still having little to show at the end of it all.
“Vibrant with their extremely personalized approach helped us upskill a whole leadership team, starting with early potential managers through to seasoned senior leaders. With their focus on effective, objective driven leadership and with robust coaching and mentoring we were able to boost skills but most importantly confidence of our management staff. Feedback couldn’t have been more positive.”

ENGINEERING – ORACLE
Employers who take the time to cultivate great career experiences benefit in the areas of talent attraction, acquisition, attendance, performance and retention. Ultimately the research shows those employers outperform their competitors and are more profitable for it. Meanwhile employees can benefit from financial stability, the psychological benefits of team connection/ belonging to something bigger than themselves, the self-esteem and confidence that comes from a job well done and a way to make a positive impact in the world – a purpose.
“Vibrant aren’t just another training company. They won’t just take your money and run. Vibrant deliver solutions that are bespoke; that will make a genuine difference to your organisation. They are definitely my go-to for any development needs and always go above and beyond for their clients.”
HR MANAGER – FIRMUS ENERGY
To quote Viktor Frankl, the Austrian neurologist, psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor, “He who has a why to live can bear with almost any how.”

“Vibrant coaches, Craig and Colin in my case, have provided extremely practical training to address usual
company challenges and also, have provided us with methodologies and frameworks to make our teams high performing and motivated. The cherry on top of their training is the coaching sessions they provided along with it.”
