Meet Joanne Barnfather

Joanne is a highly experienced facilitator and organisational consultant.  She has worked in many different industries offering training programmes in soft skills and personal development.

Joanne started her training career with a national recruitment agency.  After being a recruitment consultant she was asked to take up the role of Training Officer.  Her role was to equip all new consultants with the necessary cold calling, sales, negotiation, presentation and administration skills to be effective recruiters.

Twelve years ago Joanne decided to start consulting and has been fortunate to work with large South African companies as well as international companies. 

Joanne’s greatest strength is her ability to research up-to-date trends and models within specific industries and develop training programmes which reflect these trends.  She is then able to present these to delegates in a way that encourages them to take their current skills, merge the new skills and develop a new work strategy for themselves.  This approach allows the delegate to take charge of their own learning and facilitates a more effective transfer of skill.

Joanne is also a popular speaker at conferences.  Her client base includes small and large companies within South Africa.
