Who we are

People Insights and Pragmatic Solutions

We were founded with a single purpose – to help people and organisations to thrive and grow.

Founded by Phil Marsland in 2015, we now have a range of specialist associates, delivering a complete leadership, business transformation, personal support and development service. Our Associates.


Have a look at our “What we do” menu option to find out more.

We are called Blue Tree Consulting for a reason. The Blue Tree is a metaphor for your aligned, thriving organisation. The roots are your values and purpose – what you are here to do, and how will you act. How many organisations lose this sense of purpose, and lose their way in terms of how they will conduct business and behave? Your roots anchor you, guide you, and support everything above ground.

The trunk of the Blue Tree are your leadership capability and actions. Giving strength, guidance and direction to everyone above in your organisation.


The lower boughs characterise your approach to people. Call it HR if you will, but we believe its much more than that. Its about how you behave toward your people, the environment that you create for them in which to perform and thrive and grow. Its about maximising their strengths and potential, its not about conditioning them to be some fit in the box corporate drone. And these are 2 not tasks for HR alone, they are task for all leadership and management in the organisation, along with all colleagues.


As we head into the flourishing heart of the Blue Tree we encounter your managers. Those who, through their people deliver performance, those who need to ensure that they are aligned to your organisation’s purpose, and that their people are too. Those who are the first port of call for feedback, for motivation, and for ensuring that behaviours are aligned to your values and purpose.


Surrounding all is your leaf canopy. Perhaps each leaf representing a person. Similar in being aligned to your purpose, values and objectives. Connected to each other, very closely or somewhat less so. But each one different. Unique. But acting in harmony with the rest of your organisation.


Stepping back from your Blue Tree, you can see the whole. An aligned organisation. Strong. Thriving and growing. All contributing to the whole. Your organisational capability and culture.


So, why is our tree blue? Well, you don’t want to be the same as every other tree do you? You want to stand out, to be different. To be you.
