Welcome to the cmbdAbout us

Management, leadership, personal development training & coaching for the 21st Century across the UK.

Who are we...?

The Centre for Management and Business Development Ltd (CMBD) has its roots in The University of Nottingham's Adult Education Department. Between 2003 and 2009, Mike Epton and Brent Warren (the founding directors of CMBD) were responsible for the management and delivery of a suite of management, leadership and personal development training courses and programmes. Delegates attended training sessions from over 400 SME businesses and organisations from the East Midlands. Mike and Brent also established a fully accredited PGCM Leadership course and started the Summer School management programme for the University's overseas students.

When the University decided to concentrate on academic studies and closed the Management programme in 2009, Mike and Brent pursued their own highly successful careers in high growth coaching and management training respectively but continued to work together on many occasions. This included continuing to come together every year for The University of Nottingham's Summer School management programme (which will be in its 10th year in 2016).

In 2013, Mike and Brent decided to work together formally and CMBD was born, becoming a Limited Company in 2014. Later that same year, CMBD achieved the status of a fully approved Chartered Management Institute (CMI) Centre and has continued to go from strength to strength. Mike has responsibility for managing and delivering the coaching and consultancy side of the business and Brent concentrates on the training and qualifications aspect, including the development and training of the tutors.

Today we have a team of 12 trainers, consultants and coaches who we think are unrivalled in terms of their professionalism, expertise and dedication. We deliver a wide range of qualifications, workshops, consultancy and training to a diverse client base and .........we love what we do!
