From his days as an accountant for Bond Corporation, through various consulting and business roles, Geoff has always found himself delivering training of some type. Finding a way to make accounting system training interesting was a challenge that stimulated Geoff’s interest in one day making learning and development his career, rather than an adjunct to his daily work.
Over time, Geoff has steered his career to meet that goal; first as a training manager at a national accounting firm, to several years running his own management and learning consultancy, to now being the learning and development specialist for a nickel mining company.
As his learning career has developed, so too has Geoff’s interest in becoming more effective in the instructor-led learning environment. In that process, Geoff has become keenly interested in the role of facilitation as a means to increase learner value; and particularly the part understanding brain function has on increasing that learner value.
