– Seth Godin

I started my career in the Banking sector, with experience in lending and securities. I then spent over 20 years in the Royal Australian Air Force as a Logistics Officer and later specialised in Education and Training, where I was a trainer, assessor and executive.

In 2007, I established a private business as a consultant, specialising in Leadership, Management, Business and Professional Development training. I have qualifications in HR, Management, Leadership, Coaching, Warehousing, Transport and Logistics, the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Advanced Facilitation. I also trained in Professional Mentoring, Workplace and Leadership Coaching,  Counselling and Conflict Management and underwent undergrad studies in Human Resources.

What gets me out of bed in the morning?

I live for weekends, where I spend it exploring, listening to and making music, camping, flying aircraft, playing with my Staffy, named Harper Cookie Face!
