How We Work
What makes MBM different to every other training provider?
The learning that your team receives stays with them much longer because of our ‘Sticky Learning ®‘ method.
Do you provide training for companies outside of the UK Grocery Industry?
Our focus is on the UK Grocery Industry. We have worked with companies outside of the UK Grocery Industry though, because we could not resist working with some really great companies, such as Marks and Spencer.
How would you identify the needs of the people within my business?
We would propose a Development Needs Analysis (DNA) to identify the needs of the people and the business to achieve its goals. Using the results if this assessment we can propose and build a programme that works for you and that achieves your goals.
How do MBM evaluate?
The evaluation we provide is based on Kirkpatrick’s 4 level training evaluation model and more details can be found about the evaluation of each product on each product page.
What are the usual ways a clients starts to work with you?
We would always recommend small confident steps and building a relationship underpinned with trust. Many clients start here with one of our Masterclasses to experience the ‘cut of our cloth’.
How would supermarket buyers feel about MBM supporting their suppliers?
Supermarket buyers are very receptive to us working with their suppliers, because our philosophy has always been to help suppliers work more closely with supermarkets — even our negotiation skills programme teaches ‘win:win’ as the foundation of an effective negotiation.

Why do you only work in the UK Grocery Industry?
Simply because this is our background. Each member of the MBM team has worked in the UK Grocery Industry, either on the supermarket or the supplier side. This means that we understand your challenges and our training is designed around those challenges.

What’s with all the cartoons?
Mike Flanagan is a great cartoonist and we felt that his work reflected the fun that we like to bring to what we do. We are very serious about great people development and we like to have fun with our clients and Learners whilst we do it.
