Enterprising Futures

A division of the TDA Transitions & Learning Organisation Ltd

We release individual enterprise talent and provide solutions for corporate and public sector transitions. We can help you to develop your enterprise ideas, whatever they may be. The EF philosophy works on the simple truth that ownership drives motivation and this, in turn, drives the desire to achieve. We see our task as tapping into the enterprise potential that already exists.

Our three core approaches are:


Enabling Individuals to set up on their own owes its roots to TDA’s creative approach to outplacement. We saw it as an exciting “career option”.

Entrepreneur Development

We have now supported over 1600 individuals to make this career transition and to adopt an independent entrepreneurial life style.

Our biggest insight is that, whilst practical skills and knowledge are important, the key to success is to develop an “enterprise mindset” and to acquire behaviours that best fit with an entrepreneurial lifestyle.

Brand Partnering

A fresh “relationship approach” to the way in which large businesses can use “Franchising” to exploit market opportunity and to offer employees the opportunity to become partners.

Corporate Franchise Thinking

This combines the best from the world of both partners – “Corporate scale and strategy with local enterprise agility”, creating a “win/win” relationship and business formulae.

Having worked with some of the biggest Brands, who initially had no history of Franchising, we have learnt much about the secrets of success.


An approach designed to tap into the latent enterprise talent that always exists in large organisations, to provide a business framework in which this talent can be expressed.

Releasing Enterprise Behaviour

Our work in both the Corporate and Public Sectors has shown us that the “release of enterprise behaviours” coupled with the remodelling of “the way things are done around here” has huge change potential.

We have seen the dramatic effects that intrapreneuring can initiate, leading to higher levels of innovation, creativity and energy. Ownership is powerful!

The uniqueness of our approach lies in the way we blend our knowledge of transition, change, enterprise and behaviour with our coaching and training expertise.
