Fast 5 with our COO Dale

1. What do you do at aXcelerate?

Chief Operating Officer

2. What credentials/past experience qualify you for your position?

This role at aXcelerate requires many hats, and I have a long history in delivering major programs and projects, operational services, and commercial leadership in both public and private sectors. 

3. What is something RTOs have to deal with that you want to fix?

I want to reduce the complexity in maintaining compliance, reduce waste through centralisation and integration of solutions, and improve the learner experience to deliver better learning outcomes.

4. Where do you see the future of education and training going?

Distributed, online learning with an interactive classroom feel. I can also see sector expansion into new domains and industries in anticipation of the jobs of tomorrow.
