Meet The Team

Tim Woodman

CEO

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Tim founded ML&C in 2003 and has 23 years experience of working in learning and development.
 

At age 22 he was managing production of Type 42 destroyers (Royal Navy guided missile destroyers).
 

He says: “L&D has not yet figured out how to objectively measure its contributions to business transformation. It’s an outstanding challenge for our industry and one I spend a lot of time researching and thinking about.”

Diana Barden

Director of Learning Experience

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Starting 38 years ago with TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language), Diana has continually sought ways to help people gain confidence where and when they need it, and joined ML&C in 2006.

People really matter to Diana: she works with the individual’s Identity of Self to help them recognise the importance of their contribution and choose behaviours that reinforce this.

She says: “Sometimes the most important thing I can do is to hold a space and be quiet for long enough to let people think things through for themselves.”

Gordon Borer

Director of Business Development

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Gordon joined ML&C in 2018 with over 15 years experience delivering learning and development to companies of all sizes. He is an experienced facilitator and business coach.

He’s a 2nd Dan Black Belt in Taekwondo and draws lots of coaching inspiration from teaching with his local TKD club.

He says “Business transformation is never a smooth process and my role is to navigate through the tough stuff. When people around me start saying ‘Oh yeah, I got it’ and we’re all feeling forward momentum then I know I’ve been doing my job well.”
