We source business tips and tools to help you grow your business, your people and your profits
Welcome To The Corporate Tool-box
Business ideas are the life-blood of any business - whether large or small. Even home businesses need new ideas.
Without a fresh supply of ideas for improved products or services; initiatives for cutting costs and involvement of your staff to keep them motivated and energised, any business will become stale. Competition today isn't just local - it is GLOBAL, so if you are not looking after your customers and your staff, then someone else will steal them from you.
So to help you with a continuous supply of fresh business thinking; fresh business ideas and ideas to upskill your employees, The Corporate Tool-box sources business and personal development e-books, books, audio and video tools as well as training licenses (so you can run your own in-house training for a fraction of the cost of bringing in training consultants).
We want to ensure that small, medium and even large businesses can grow their bottom line without the fear of training costing them an arm and a leg.
We also have a large library of free business articles and free e-books, and a range of other business resources including games and online tools, many of which are delivered straight to your inbox so you can use them instantly.

Here you'll find products to help you increase sales, improve team performance, recruit staff more effectively, deal with change, manage your time effectively and even manage conflict in the workplace.

How The Corporate Toolbox Started
The Corporate Tool-box was formed by Ann Andrews, CSP, Dip Bus (Pmer) a 20 year veteran of business and HR consulting. She was always distressed whenever there was a downturn in the economy to find that the first thing an organisation (no matter how large or small) would do, was to cancel all training. sometimes even going as far as to make the Training Manager redundant. . A huge false economy which shows up within a matter of months in:
* Low productivity
* Low morale
* High turnover of staff
So she decided to find people around the world who had created great business/training products which were not only tested and true; but which wouldn't cost an arm and a leg. She looked for contributors who loved what they did and were excited about putting their knowledge on the toolbox site so that no business, large or small need ever say, we can't afford to train our people.
Who Are Our Contributors?
All of our contributors are authors, consultants, trainers and or professional speakers with at least 15 years' experience in their field. That's your guarantee of our product quality.
How Are We Different?
Most training websites promote products created by just one person, often on just one topic. The Corporate Tool-box actively sources products from a huge range of fields and countries around the world, keeping us at the forefront of the training and development world.
Where We Are Today
We now have a team of nine amazing people working with Ann on this exciting global business. We pride ourselves on having a constantly updated range of the very best leading-edge business and training products from around the world for:
- Owner-operated businesses who need great business growth and staff training programs that don't cost the earth
- Corporates who need an ongoing supply of the latest products in the corporate training field in a format that is instantly downloadable and replicable
- Individuals who want to develop their own careers
Every business in the world faces the constant challenge of managing budgets and improving employee performance in the most economical way possible. As an HR consultant Ann saw evidence on the bottom line results of training employees, on a daily basis.
Here's just some of the benefits Ann saw:
- Improved productivity
- Improved morale
- Decreased absenteeism and reduced sick leave (one company she worked with went from a 27% absenteeism rate down to 3% simply be spending half a day a month for three months doing some basic team building. People actually wanted to come to work!)
- Serious bottom-line improvements
Even the simplest training intervention caused people to become more involved, more alert and more engaged. The beautiful thing is that the training investment always pays for itself - and some!
We look forward to helping you achieve results in your personal or working life that previously you had only dared dream of!
