Our Philosophy and Approach

Bute Learning and Development was founded by Margo Manning back in 2006.  Margo has been in the training arena for 20+ years.  After  years of engaging with external training providers,  the seeds of Bute were sown.  Too many occasions where trainers turned up late and unprepared, workshops delivered without care or passion and a constant lack of tangible support to multiple stakeholders meant a fresh approach was needed.  In addition to this, external Account Managers  seeming to offer good service until the dotted line was signed and then became non-responsive.

This is the antithesis of Bute and its values.  Bute Learning and Development is designed around your businesses  and staff’s development needs and goals.

Our Skills and Experience

Bute Trainers all have real life experiences,  having been ‘hands on’ in real jobs other than training.  Knowing the real world is very different to the ideal world and being in a position to relate to this supports our Guests (the participants of the programme) on their development.

Our staff are a highly experienced team of professionals who have worked in diverse backgrounds including: IT, financial (including investment and retail banking), legal, insurance, pensions, retail, surveying, property development, accounts, construction, housing, education and many more sectors.

Our collective experience in Business Management and Learning and Development in various industries allows us to provide our clients with a total solution package.   We are advocates of tried and tested methods, Honey and Mumford Learning Styles, Johari Feedback, 4 D’s in Time Management, Situational Leadership, to name but a few.

We also like to work outside the obvious and our experience allows us to do this successfully.

Our Mission and Values

We are passionate in our knowledge that every company and every individual is different and we apply this to our design, content and to our delivery.
