I am a dedicated and results-driven individual with a highly successful track record in the Education sector, having achieved excellent client satisfaction over the past 25 years through the execution of successful learning and development strategies. Experienced in working within all sectors of the Education and Training field, I am well known and respected within the Hospitality and Education SETA’s. I possess excellent interpersonal, communication and leadership skills and enjoy being part of, as well as managing, motivating and training, successful and productive teams, and thrive in highly challenging working environments.

Having worked for small and large corporates such as Barloworld Logistics, International Hotel School, Fedics Food Services and Durban University of Technology, I have a very wide scope of business and learning & development experience which has benefited me in the role of both educator and occupational development specialist.

I was part of the team who implemented the very first learnerships in South Africa in 1995 and have been part of the occupational qualification landscape ever since. As Director of NewSkills Education, I offer a training and consulting service within the Hospitality, Tourism, Education & Services Sectors, having assisted more than 20 training providers set up and start or grow their schools.
