I see myself as instrumental to the change I want to see in the world. A large part of that world includes corporates and small business who offer communities their products and services.
Where I have taught...
I have taught meditation and mindfuflness in a range of different environments from wellness centre's to corporate settings to sports clubs. I have facilitated a number of retreats for people from all walks of life to give them an enduring toolset for life.
My entry into IT in 1995 led me to design, develop and deliver course curriculum for Skillshare and Russo Institute of Technology. As a technical writer, I worked for Mincom developing procedures and course ware for their flagship product used in mining, defence and transport industries worldwide.
I joined Tatts Group in 2006, as BA\Technical Writer\Trainer for the Wagering division. Since then, for the last 10 years I have worked in various parts of the business - Business Systems, Corporate Solutions, Strategy & Planning, Security & Compliance, Technical Systems and now in Agility.
My current role is Training and Development Analyst for Tatts Group. We service the Technology team of 350 as our primary audience, followed by our secondary audience, a staff complement of around 2500 people.
Our CIO won Young executive of the Year award 2015 and Tatts is well on its way to becoming a competitive, world-class organisation in its industry with such leadership at its helm. I like to think that, in part, I have contributed to the overall success of our company by our advanced and progressive training methods e.g gamification, challenges, hack-a-thons etc.
n addition to my career at Tatts, I run a non-profit called Dreamtopia and a studio called Blue Cloud. I teach periodically at the Relaxation Centre of Queensland, under the careful guidance and mentorship of Dr Lionel Fifield.
My family and I live in Brisbane, and we channel 10% of our earnings to Dreamtopia to donate to projects in South Africa. The most recent project is to channel funding the Johannesburg Baby House for orphaned HIV positive babies.
I currently work for the Tatts Group as Training and Development Analyst, Instructional Designer, Team Skills Coach and Trainer/Facilitator within the Tatts Technology Improvement Team.
Tatts is a world class entertainment services conglomerate of companies that include Golden Casket, Maxgaming and UBet Wagering. I design team skills training for consumption by the 350 staff who work in Technology who are currently going through an agility transition.
I am part of a high performing transition team that is active in the transformation of the Technology team from traditional IT waterfall methodologies to agility methodologies. I facilitate teams in using mindfulness to move towards becoming a high performing teams.
I am also the privileged owner of Blue Cloud Studio in Springwood, Brisbane. I teach a regular evening meditation classes and run two day mindfulness trainings quarterly on the weekends.
