Talking Trade

Our live show discussing the news, topics and debates affecting the construction industry. For the trade, by the trade. Join the conversation and have your voice heard.


Talking Trade brings to the surface the issues affecting the boots on the ground right now.

We’ve covered everything from supply chain issues to mental health to net zero and sustainability. We take these topics and then invite experts and tradespeople from across the industry to help us explore them further.

No matter your trade specialism – roofer, labourer, electrician, plumber, apprentice – we want to hear from you all.

Talking Trade is for everyone’s opinion – because connecting construction is what On The Tools is all about.

Talking Trade in action


We always want to spark more conversation. So, let’s talk about the biggest issues impacting the UK construction industry right now.

Do you have a view on something impacting tradespeople? Are you a subject matter or technical expert? Can you offer advice or guidance to help tradespeople? Are you a brand who can add value?
