Michael Thompson

Michael Thompson - Select Training and Management Consultancy LLC

Michael’s career began at the Ministry of Defence in London UK, where as an Executive officer with accountability for an administrative business unit, responsible for sourcing, arranging extensive trials and acquisition of specialist military equipment, he learned how to recruit, build, develop and manage teams. During this time, to broaden his educational base, enhance his coaching, management and leadership capabilities and to gain a wider understanding of business processes and management procedures, he attended night school from where he attained his ONC Business studies qualification

Transferring to the Private sector enabled him to move through mid-level management into a number of senior Operations and Management positions in companies with Retail and Services sector interests – including Real estate, Finance, Insurance, Logistics and Automotive. After a number of years of assessing potential and strategic planning, including supporting tactical acquisitions, process implementation and effective delivery of business growth objectives across Sales, Marketing, CRM, Aftersales and Customer service departments, Michael decided to invest in his own business and as a result become Managing Director of MT Ltd – one of only 5 Franchised Automotive Groups operating nationwide.

To train a wide range of communication, management and leadership workshops across many industries in the UK and in the Gulf region, along with business skill development, to improve his knowledge base Michael studied Johari window, Myers Briggs, Belbin and NLP and became an active participant in the Academy of Chief Executives ‘’Business Angel’’ programme. Prior to moving full time to UAE in 2011, Michael worked with PSA Group to design, develop and implement a Senior management mentor and coaching programme. Key learning included establishment and implementation of Brand operating and performance standards, team development – skill transfer implementation, delegation and succession planning, and enhanced customer handling skills. Michael has been a ‘Business Excellence’ guest speaker at NADA (North Atlantic Dealer Association) annual conference in Las Vegas USA

Having engaged and interacted at all levels across corporate environments throughout his wide-spread management, training and development career, the over-riding principle he passionately believes in, is the need for ongoing investment and development of people. His training style encourages appreciation and retention of newly acquired knowledge and skills that can be fully implementation back to workplace.
