Portfolio

Objective

To create a corporate learning environment that  fosters job satisfaction and improves efficiencies in such a way as to meet the corporate vision.

Summary

Beginning my professional career as a COBOL programmer and after many tens of thousands of punch cards I realised that programming was not for me.  When an opportiunity to teach COBOL came along I fell right into the training niche, and have never been far away from it ever since.

As a passionate and experienced training professional  with very strong business skills I bring many years of knowledge and experience.  I am able to work at a strategic level while maintaining care and thought for the learning requirements of every single individual and stakeholder in the organization.

As certified privacy professional with a business degree and strong IT skills I bring a wide range of skills and understanding of the challanges brought about by legislative, technology and stategic changes in the corporate environment.
