Work and Capability
The majority of my professional work history has centred on disciplines such as workforce capability, employment and training, social planning and lifestyle planning.
The broad scope of this work has assisted me in closely monitoring the dynamics of the changing workforce and in initiating a wide range of programs that have focussed on organisational specific needs.
My capabilities within the various work arenas include:
I have an analytical approach to problem solving and apply a structured way in implementing appropriate action. I am quickly able to identify and categorise issues and then offer and apply a creative thinking process to find the most appropriate solution.
I am a qualified trainer with considerable experience in delivering training to both public and private clients, extensive facilitation experience and am regarded by clients as a highly strategic thinker, excellent communicator and insightful planner.
During my working lifetime I have been professionally involved in the following sectors:
Across this diverse range of sectors as a private contractor I have provided support and direction to dozens of small to large private, public sector and not for profit organisations.
I introduced and implemented ageing workforce and knowledge transfer initiatives to several large private sector clients which have contributed to reducing operational risks, improving efficiencies and providing greatly enhanced retirement outcomes for hundreds of older workers.

After thirty years as a practising leisure professional I have developed an approach that helps individuals replace the intrinsic benefits of paid work with serious leisure. This is in response to working with retiring baby boomers who have worked for decades and gained their sense of self from paid work.
