Training Services


We design and deliver bespoke, dynamic training for construction and engineering industry clients. Our workshops are grounded in law but have a practical and purposive focus. 


We equip delegates with detailed knowledge and skills, which will enable them to make law work for their organisation, whatever their experience and core expertise.


We achieve this by designing round-table sessions on focussed topics and aligning the material to the organisation's business objectives and values. 


We create training material that is content-rich, interactive and based on experience. 


We deliver our workshops with energy and enthusiasm.

We draw on our field experience: all-parties workshops are highly recommended before a project gets underway in earnest. They provide valuable insight into the processes for contract management and administration, they are perfect for clarifying corporate expectations and they enable individuals to meet their counterparts and work together on identified areas of challenge. 


We are recommended because our workshops are fun and bring functions and disciplines closer.


We mentor: we focus on equipping students and apprentices with useful knowledge and skills about the practical operation of law, so they can confidently and meaningfully contribute to the organisation from day 1. 


We collaborate with global professional associations to educate and improve the skills of project managers, whether managing internal or external projects. 


We listen: we love the challenge of designing a workshop just for you!

Building Safety Act 

Really clear and useful, thank you

Thanks very much, this was a really helpful session.

That was first class, please pass on my compliments to Sarah Schutte for such a considerate presentation. I am grateful and would like to know what else she has done and is doing. Very good.

Much needed to get started on building safety, levelling up and the 'jigsaw' of activities!

Webinar boxsets

Great introduction to JCT: being split into topics really helped us to get to grips with it

I made sure my whole team watched the NEC boxset. Well delivered and easy to digest. Would recommend them to anyone about to start working on NEC or for a good update for NEC4 in practical terms

Really well delivered - well done. Every project manager should have these [NEC] sessions, beautifully concise and in plain language.

"Simply, another great workshop from Sarah"

Comparing NEC, JCT & PPC

Another great course delivered by Sarah - thank you! 

The round table format where discussion amongst peers is far better than the lecture format. I would advocate MBL adopting the style utilised by Sarah in all of the training.

Well-pitched with useful discussion break out sessions.

This was really interesting and there were some surprisingly diverse topics covered.

We will have to reappraise how we do this when I get back to the office.

Good speaker with good illustrations!
