Who we are

We’re in the business of ‘engaging people’. It sounds simple, but we know that how you communicate with your workforce makes or breaks any kind of business endeavour. We believe that by engaging people to embrace change, we can help you realise your organisation’s untapped potential.

Inspiring, training, stimulating and supporting people is what we’ve been doing for over 20 years, working across all kinds of business sectors and project types. As a fully-integrated change management consultancy, our expertise, experience, creative flair and passion is at your disposal. Our joined-up approach ensures a cost-effective, efficient and coherent delivery.

Concise communications, cutting-edge SharePoint solutions, inspiring e-learning and creative design are just some of the skills we have to offer. Creating the right mix of disciplines means we can tailor our approach to meet your needs and budget.

Wondering what our name means?
‘The Fifth Business’ is taken from the novel ‘The Deptford Trilogy’ by Robertson Davies, and refers to the supporting members of a theatrical company who work behind the scenes to enable the main action to take place. This forms the guiding principle of what we do and how we do it.
