New Zealand Workplace Communication Training
I am renowned for my ability to be innovative and collaborative to provide the “best fit” in a programme. I get frustrated by the large amount of training provision in NZ, often all working at cross purposes. My goal is to make better use of available provision to be mutually beneficial to all parties.
I have been working in adult education for over 20 years, most of this time in Adult Communication, Literacy and Numeracy. I am a registered NZQA Materials Developer for Literacy and Numeracy resources, which keeps me current with any new developments in this area.
Success is about allowing people to feel empowered at every level of an organisation, and recognising that, no matter what the role, staff are the experts in their field and their feedback is valued. Staff need the tools to give feedback in a positive, solutions focused manner. This helps to create a business culture that includes support and trust therefore increasing innovation and collaboration.
Michelle is an experienced financial adviser, business consultant and proud mother.

Family and well-being are key focus points for Michelle and these attributes, coupled with her deep understanding of financial modelling and budget advisory services, make her a valuable asset to the team at Sarah's Solutions.
