I have worked as a trainer for much of my professional life. This includes working with organisations such as Family Planning, Community Alcohol Drug Services and Harassment and Bullying Prevention Training Programmes supported by the Human Rights Commission.
In 1999, I set up VV Training and began specialising in the design and delivery of training packages to health organisations and manufacturing companies. Since then, I have developed and refined my techniques, topics and course structures. My most popular courses are centred around leadership, mediation and de-escalation training, as well as alcohol and drug education for the manufacturing sector. My customer service and customer service with cross-cultural focus courses are also popular, especially for those whose clients might be from migrant or refugee communities.
I’m enlivened by assisting people to learn, particularly those who don’t thrive in traditional lecture-style environments.
My satisfaction comes from knowing that participants leave the training room with new ways of approaching difficult situations in the workplace, having acquired a new bodily awareness of doing things differently.
