As the Curator of botanic gardens, the Director of an international conservation program and a consultant, I have been involved in the initiation, organisation and running of training workshops with regards to plant conservation, the development of plant collections and the management of botanic gardens. These training courses have been run in Australasia, Asia and the Middle East. This has included the organisation of training programs, the presentation of training sessions and the organisation and conducting of tours.
While at the Alice Springs Desert Park I also set up a horticultural apprenticeship program for Aboriginal students, as well as, an Honours project program in conjunction with The Granites Mine in the Northern Territory. I have also been employed by the Canberra Technical and Further Education in Australia to give presentations to horticultural apprentices.
