Boo Coaching and Consulting are a small (yet mighty) team who are powered by the belief that life is too short to be unhappy at work! A world-class training organisation based in the heart of Bolton with a vision to create healthy and happy workplaces for all.

Boo joined our family of corporate sponsors during the pandemic in 2020, and since then the partnership has gone from strength to strength. We love working with Boo and really admire the incredible work they do across the town, the UK and internationally whilst remaining rooted in Bolton. Boo support so many valuable causes across our town to survive and thrive and are incredibly grateful for the support they have given the Octagon over the years.
