WITH 20 years' experience as a trainer and training manager, Jennie O'Brien is a local who really understands what it takes to run a business, whether a modest endeavour or global industry.
Jennie is the new face at Gympie Conference Centre and has joined the team to provide training programs tailored to suit any level of business.
She will be available to hold training sessions at your place of business for one-on-one meetings and at the centre for small or large group training sessions.
"I know what it is to be a people trainer," Jennie said.
"Let me know your training needs and I will tailor training programs to suit, including various government funding opportunities of up to $4000 per person."
The centre's general manager, Craig Gardner, said the Gympie business community could look forward to having an experienced trainer locally.
"You won't have to fit in with a Brisbane training schedule," he said.
"It is this convenience for local business that gives Jennie's training the edge."
The programs on offer include a large range of nationally accredited diplomas and Certificate IV courses in a range of subjects including business, management, project management, occupational health and safety and also a full range of computer and technical skills in Microsoft Office.
Courses in personal development and double diplomas with government funding, will also be offered.
If you have completed a Certificate III or IV qualification, you could be eligible for funding. These government initiatives are to assist in addressing skill shortages in the region.
Jennie has worked in many different fields as a trainer, including the hospitality sector, professional services, banking, government and small business.
She says her qualifications speak for themselves.
Not only is she nearing completion of her masters in learning and development but she also holds a Microsoft Master of Office specialist accreditation, which means she is at the highest level of accreditation in Microsoft Office.
Jennie lives in Curra and invested in the area in 2004.
"I see Gympie as a big growth area and I am looking forward to building business, getting out in the community and speaking with many of you to find out your training needs," she said.
