The Trade House has been a brand of mine since 2008. After one venture closed the name became essentially dormant until I resurrected it a few months ago for use as an umbrella brand and the new name for the magazine. The roots of the magazine go back much further
The Trade House is our unique web, email and telephone based matching service that enables your business to participate in projects, joint ventures, business deals and mergers and acquisitions with a minimum of fuss and with a low, low cost base.
The Trade Library houses all of the intellectual property and business tools owned by The Trade House and Court Guinness.
A few things you do not know about Court.
He has worked all over the world. He is an expert in blagging upgrades with Hotels, Airlines and Car Hire companies. He has Estonian residency.
He is a former International IT Consultant and Management Consultant. He has been a director of 8 companies. He is a bit of an expert on muti-deck refrigerated display units!
One of his claims to fame is nearly being run over by Her Majesty The Queen!
Rumour, Legend and Folklore has it that Court owns Gatwick Airport – Actually this bit is utter tosh! Another claim to fame is managing to travel on more flights in one year than pilots are legally alowed to fly.
The IRA have attempted to blow Court up four times. They failed massively everytime! Court didn’t need medical assistance! In fact all Court needed was some replacement underwear from Marks and Spencer.
Another Court claim to fame is being able to have a cigarette at the bottom of the runway at Heathrow Airport. You might ask how he managed this? Its simple he was working on the build of Terminal 5. Court has lived in 5 countries and speaks 3 launguages.
Court is deaf and disabled. Court is a big fan of 80’s classic motor cars and classic Jaguar motor cars. Lastly Court is a pastor with The Universal Life Church Monastery and is licensed to officiate at weddings! This was set up by one of Court’s mates as a bit of a giggle at his expense!
“We have known Court Guinness and his abilities for a number of years now and have worked with him on a number of occasions. We rely on his advice when buying or selling sites and technology businesses. We would never do anything in this area without consulting closely with Court and his team.”

Court sold my retail business for me. He achieved a good price and made the process smooth. I look forward to working with him again.
