Speak to David about:
David has over 20 years’ experience in education, R&D and financial services both as a neuroscientist (Melbourne and Cambridge Universities for 14 years) and leading strategy consultant where he was retained by CEOs, government departments and their executive teams to advise on their most complex strategic issues (Nous Group, Principal and Education sector leader for six years). In 2016 he created Curio, a collective of advisors, educators and product developers focused on working directly with education and training organisations to improve human learning. Over the last five years he has led Curio from Melbourne on its amazing growth journey – annually doubling in size to now over 230 people in offices across Australia and United Kingdom.
More thinking from David
Balance leadership and corporate development resources during transformation
Don’t fall for a mismatch in learning and development resources allocated to leadership and corporate functions. Involve all departments in change management at the outset to plan effective learning and development initiatives with a thorough understanding of capability and skills gaps, alongside business priorities.
Despite challenges, potential changes in VET are electrifying
The post-pandemic economic and humanitarian recovery gives all stakeholders a unique moment to reshape the VET sector and strengthen VET’s potential to ensure Australian businesses of all shapes and sizes have the skills they need to support their growth.
