History : practical books for your future

Oak Tree Press is Ireland’s leading business book publisher, with an unrivalled reputation for quality titles across business, management, human resources, law, marketing and enterprise topics. NuBooks is its ebook-only imprint for short, focused ebooks for busy entrepreneurs and managers. To make a long story short, our authors are all experts in their field, and we are committed to supporting them right through their writing journey.

For over 30 years, oak tree press has developed and delivered information, advice and resources to entrepreneurs and managers across Ireland and internationally.
In 2023, Oak Tree press’ parent Cork Publishing Ltd became part of the Brussels-headquartered Corporate Group of specialist publishing companies, opening new opportunities for Oak Tree authors across Europe in a range of languages.
Our publishing skills mean human adventures and successful businesses.

Corporate Group : successful books

Our publishing group is small enough to care passionately about every one of our books and our authors, and big enough to provide top-quality global distribution, rights, and sales and marketing support.

Steady presence in Ireland, Belgium and Switzerland with outposts in the UK, the United States, Australia and China (and beyond !) do offer our authors multiple edges.

Yearly sales are oriented towards the € 2M mark ($ 2.2M • CHF 1.9M) with an international team of 15 professionals.

Our international offices are installed in Cork (IE), Brussels (BE) and Bulle (CH). Two complementary regional centers are devoted to adding value to the specificities of book publishing in France (office in Liège (BE - Belgian French speaking region)) and in the Netherlands (office in Herentals (BE- Belgian Dutch speaking region)).
