About Developing Managers
Developing Managers specialises in Management and Leadership Development solutions to businesses of all sizes with the aim of generating early and discernible Returns on Investment (ROI) for each intervention we implement.
We provide training to business from our wide range of short business focussed courses that are optimised for delivery in 1 or 2 days and provide a number of “takeaways” that can be implemented straightaway. In addition we provide a training and development consultancy service which will diagnose, design, deliver and evaluate interventions focused on your specific needs.
To support training and development we have found that effective coaching and mentoring solutions can help to implement and develop new ideas quickly generating business improvements.
For organisations or individuals that more in-depth training and development we run a CMI Centre delivering a range of management & leadership as well as coaching and mentoring courses.
Developing Managers is lead by Philip Cullen who has worked in business development, sales and marketing before moving into operations management where he developed and implemented major change programmes to significantly improve business performance and which lead to an Investors in People award and membership of the British Quality Foundation.
This led to consultancy work with KPMG on a major strategic change programme working closely with the Board, Directors and senior managers. He worked as an adviser to the UK Government and US Department of Labor on initiatives to help create new businesses and also in the Eastern Bloc as a change consultant working with Ministers and senior managers.
Phil moved into training and consultancy and was responsible for implementing a couple of Management Development Programme each of which was £1.5 million.
