The Bute Group (Bute) is a group of experienced facilitators and coaches who specialise in consulting, designing and delivering exceptional management and leadership learning and development group and 1:1 coaching programmes.   Our aim and goal is to support your leaders and managers to unlock their potential.

Bute (originally Bute Ltd) was founded in 2005 by Margo Manning.  Today, Bute is a London based, international provider operating an ‘international on-demand’ service.   We fly to international English-speaking locations to deliver exceptional development programmes that ensures development continuity across all locations.

Margo’s vision was to deliver outstanding training and development programmes following contemporary theories and concepts and to inject some fun whilst carrying this out.

Today the vision remains the same, however, the name has changed and now the team focuses exclusively on developing managers and leaders. In 2014, the team designed the 3:2 Management and Leadership Model, a framework formed around five components; three of the components represent the individual’s requirements, developing attitudes, changing behaviours and boosting skillsets, while the remaining two consider the business requirements of meeting goals and achieving high-performance outcomes.  The 3:2 Management and Leadership Model is core to our development offering.

Our facilitators and coaches have many years’ worth of experience in operational management and leadership roles. They are passionate about their own development too with professional qualifications including: coaching accreditations, management accreditations, ITIL, Prince 2, Psychometric Assessments, A1 Assessments, and various degrees.

We create strong partnerships with our clients working alongside them to help them achieve their goals. From the first interaction through to and following the delivery of the development, we consistently offer a positive and productive service, working with a great range of clients both within the UK and internationally, and, within different industries and sectors.  These include Brunswick Group LLP, Axis Europe, Wyndham Hotel Group, Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Square One Resources, Prax Petroleum, Smart Pensions, and many more.
