Brett’s working life began in primary school, continuing through to all of the normal takeaway outlets and summer jobs until the end of high school.
Uni life moved Brett into event management on the social committee, and various other management roles, ending up owning a cafe when he left Uni at 21 yrs old.
After selling the cafe a few years later, Brett moved into Franchise support, Business Development, marketing and operational support and helped open around 50 outlets in this time.
The next phase saw Brett move into hospitality management in hotels and major tourist attractions. Returning to franchising as the Support Manager for BRW’s 2nd fastest growing franchise, he then took the franchise overseas as the Operations Manager based in the Middle East.
Returning to Australia, Brett went back into hotels and tourism while undertaking a Masters in Business. After completing study, Brett moved into the formal training system.
Writing Training and Assessment material for organisations with turnover above $500 million per year, Brett became an expert in training and assessment strategy compliance working on implementing the industry reforms. He has also been deemed qualified to deliver training for the Diploma of Business, now considered a “High Risk” of non-compliance by the training industry regulator (ASQA).
Putting it all together now, Brett’s latest project includes helping small businesses and social enterprises grow, and providing training content for school children, International students and long-term unemployed.
After all this, Brett still believes doing training and volunteer work for Small Businesses and Social Enterprises is best way to ensure that training is relevant to the real world and meets the needs of employers, great and small, while keeping your finger on the pulse of what really matters to people on the front line.
