April 2018: Lord Butler Opens 2creatEffects Dynamic Thinking Training Course
Our core training course, 'Dynamic Thinking', was based on recommendations and lessons from the famous 'Butler Review', The Review of Weapons of Intelligence on Weapons of Mass Destruction (Iraq). On Thursday 15th and Friday 16th March Lord Butler attended two of our events; A conference entitled 'lessons from the Butler Review applied to business leaders', and a Master Degree training seminar entitled 'Dynamic Thinking in Intelligence Analysis, whereby Lord Butler imparted with wisdom from his career to students at Rey Juan Carlos in Madrid. Feedback from conference attendees and students was excellent. Attendees included senior officials from the intelligence community as well as a number of eminent academics.
Head of the Civil Service, Private Secretary to 5 Prime Ministers, Master of University College Oxford - Lord Butler's career has been exceptional, unlike any other. We think of him as the Gandalf of Government.
