Naomi

Background

I commenced with the Didasko Group as a Research Writer & Subject Matter Expert, while I worked as a sessional lecturer. I loved the company so much, I soon moved into an ongoing role. From there, I progressed into managing strategic projects for the Group and now hold the position of General Manager - Education.

My career began in the hospitality industry in Cairns, Queensland. I worked in various four and five star hotels across a range of roles, including reception (Manager & Supervisor), reservations, night audit and HR/training and development. I saw first-hand the impact quality training and development could have on the individual and the business, and this inspired my career change.

After completing a Diploma in Teaching, I went on to do a Bachelor in Education and Training. I also have a Master of Business Administration (MBA), Cert IV in Training & Assessment and a Diploma of Hospitality.

I have extensive experience in curriculum development and teaching, from on-the-job training, online courses, classroom delivery – to lecturing, both in Melbourne and in China. My favourite topics include human resource management, leadership, managing diversity and business planning and strategy.

How I will help you

My position involves providing educational and strategic direction to the Didasko Group and my areas of responsibility include Computer Power, Didasko Institute of Business, Student Services, Career Placement and QA and Compliance.

My early hospitality training has never left me, and I’m passionate about providing quality customer service. I'm interested in your feedback and will work with the team to continually review all that we do, with the aim of providing you with the best education experience and help for you to achieve your career goals.
