Company history

LM Training was started in 1985 by Lydia Malone and delivered basic management courses in communications and team working for hospitals and the railways. One of the major projects was a 3 year residential training course for British Rail engineering supervisors following a major accident at Clapham Junction in 1988. 

In 1991 the company expanded into quality management programmes such as Investors In People and changed its name to LMQ (Leadership Management and Quality) to reflect this work, but still retain its original roots. Soon after in 1993 LMQ became involved in the aviation industry through running CRM and human factors programmes, and later in instructor development.

Since then, LMQ have developed into small but experienced team of 8 consultants, specialising in training people at all levels in core skills, particularly in safety critical industries such as aviation, healthcare, rail and oil and gas.

LMQ have a worldwide reputation as one of the leading companies in this area.
