About Lantern

Lantern was created out of a desire to share knowledge and understanding and a passion for supporting and developing people.  

We offer a friendly and approachable style of consultation and developmental service delivery to ensure that the learning journey is an enjoyable but meaningful experience. Our ability to communicate and relate to people helps to generate genuine interest and self-reflection, both of which are key to better understanding ourselves if we are to understand and work effectively with others.


We believe that training and development activities should be contextualised, fun and easy to understand and those flavours are blended with a professional approach to deliver exceptional standards of service delivery.

Phil Hutchinson is the Owner of Lantern.


My name is Phil and I like to help people! I have learned a lot over the years about who I am and how I impact others and try to use that knowledge and experience to enable growth for individuals and organisations through the support and development of people.


I have worked in Learning and Development for over 25 years in both public and private sector organisations across the country and use the knowledge, understanding and skillset I have acquired over the years to provide a unique service to my colleagues and clients.

I am a qualified trainer, assessor, management consultant and a member of the Association for Coaching and a Chartered Manager with the Chartered Management Institute.

In addition to management of L&D departments and design & delivery of training products, I have also provided a wide range of coaching, mentoring and support services to organisations and individuals.

I firmly believe that an honest, friendly and open approach enables effective communication which is essential for the generation of trusting relationships and excellent service delivery.


Whether working with individuals or organisations, my passion and dedication translates into all the products and services I offer. If you think I might be of use to you, drop me a line and I'll see if I can help!
