Peta is passionate about incorporating the latest research into a continually renewed and refreshed blended learning offering.
Working in large corporations and philanthropic organisations from early in her career saw Peta develop an extensive grounding in business management with a focus on human resources. At The Resilience Institute, Peta draws on her first-hand experience and understanding of the pressures commonly faced by individuals, teams and organisations in the banking and finance, transport, education and not-for-profit sectors. Peta's professional, educational and personal background enables her clients to feel fully engaged and supported.
