Professional Facilitation and Training


As a qualified learning and development facilitator, I design, develop, and write learning materials and training courses for both on-line and face-to-face delivery.  I combine technical writing with instructional design principles to create learning materials that achieve practical and relevant learning objectives. My focus is on adult learning, and more specifically the transferring of knowledge and skills to the workplace. My mission is to share knowledge and expertise.

Combining Work and Lecturing

Throughout my working and consulting career I have combined my full-time job with part-time lecturing.  My experience includes lecturing on MBA, B.Tech and Executive Development programs at university and graduate business school. In addition, I facilitate in-house workshops and training courses for large corporate and multi-national clients. These courses include managerial and supervisory development programs as well as talent management and employee development.  I also develop learning materials, facilitate, and assess unit-standard based learnerships, national certificates and diplomas.

Internationally, as part of my professional facilitation, training, and assessment services, I have facilitated in excess of one-hundred workshops and training courses over the past twenty years.

Professional Learning and Development Facilitator

My job as a facilitator is to make things easier, and I do this by incorporating an outcomes-based competency approach in each of my facilitation sessions. I integrate knowledge, skills and understanding into the learning experience.

Qualified Assessor

As a qualified assessor, I design and administer assessment tools, checklists and rubrics for assessing workplace competency. I conduct training needs analysis, map competency requirements against job descriptions, and identify development gaps.
