About me

Trudy Thompson – Business coach, social entrepreneur, smallholder and writer.

Visit my inspiring retreat in Cornwall to see what my coaching sessions and staying on a peaceful farm in the most beautiful countryside will do to recharge your mind, body and ambition!

I’ve achieved the most incredible things with my life despite the odds against me and I’ve dedicated the last 10 years of my life to sharing my experience to enable others to achieve their dreams.

In 2012 I started mentoring a young entrepreneur to turn his hobby into a business venture and in the last 5 years he has honed his entrepreneurial skills working alongside me.  We have 20 year age gap between us but our friendship is really special and we’ve become completely joined at the hip as best friends who work together, share everything and even live in the same house.

Together we launched a retreat for enterprising people at a 15th century farmhouse and smallholding in Tywardreath in Cornwall. Where we share our experience and the methods I’ve developed to guide others to success.

The retreat provides holiday accommodation and inspiring business coaching sessions sharing the creative thinking techniques that have helped me to create my ventures. Our clients range from FTSE 100 companies to micro business entrepreneurs.

With Josh Taylor we have raised a social investment fund to purchase property and support the growth of the ventures we incubate within our community, in 2016 we saved our village shop and turned around the business into a thriving retail enterprise.

Specialties: Creative thinker and entrepreneur. Business development coaching. Smallholder. Writer and Guest speaker on social entrepreneurship and sustainable business innovation.
