Dave knows how to connect with learners and uses personal experiences to engage and create a positive learning environment. He has become increasingly aware of the challenge’s workplaces face with poor communication and literacy skills and has seen how the right training can help to improve productivity as well as self esteem for the employee.
A Site Safe approved trainer, health and safety is close to Dave’s heart. Employees with low level literacy are statistically the demographic most susceptible to workplace injury and illness. Upskilling workers with the necessary communication tools and knowledge that leads to changes in attitudes and behaviour and increased awareness towards health and safety has become his primary training focus.
Dave joined The Learning Wave in 2007 and has worked with a wide range of clients including Pacific Homecare, Downer, Countdown, Hubbards, Buckley Systems, Carter Holt Harvey and API.
