Meet the team

Mike Newton
Senior Business Development Manager

Mike’s main responsibility at Learning Pool is understanding clients requirements, demonstrating how Learning Pool’s solutions can add value and bringing new clients on board – especially those active in the Financial Services sector, such as SwissRe, British Business Bank, Brewin Dolphin and OSTC.

Mike’s career began with managing EU and government-funded tech learn projects in the early 90s. He also set up and sold a successful Learn Tech start-up and took several cloud-based LMS platforms to market and established and managed direct sales and channel/alliance programmes in the same space.

Mike loves to see the end results of projects he has been involved in – particularly those that use a mix of technologies, approaches and custom/catalogue content.

In his spare time, likes to read and watch movies (a lot of SciFi!) as well as spending time restoring classic motorcycles and coaching competitive Judo in various parts of the world. He was the Olympic Judo coach for Norway for a spell!
