MAGELA Consultants was set up twenty years ago by Matthew Last after a career in international trading and sales, followed by an MBA at City University Business School.

MAGELA focused initially on marketing consultancy and training but quickly developed wider expertise in business strategy, leadership and management development. Rapid growth brought a larger team of consultants and a diverse client base

Early on we were asked to design and deliver development programmes in local government and police forces. These were so successful that within a few years we had worked with dozens of different public sector organisations.

Private sector organisations, particularly technology based and small companies have always been a major part of our business and we have particular experience in helping people from technical backgrounds to develop business skills.

More recently, MAGELA has increased its expertise in working within the not for profit sector with both charities and housing associations.

Today clients use us for facilitation, training, coaching, mentoring, consultancy and non-executive Directorships. We are often asked to work with senior teams, Boards and Trustees on complex and sensitive issues.

Passionate about our own development and professional standards, we also offer supervision for trained executive coaches – increasingly regarded by clients as a core requirement.
