Hi all SDFs
I'm the SDF for Monash South Africa, a private higher education institution and fully owned by Monash University - the biggest Australian university.What I really love about my work, is the fact that it is so uplifting. To assist the institution in skilling the staff, empowering them with multi-skills and motivating them to become life long learners, is a challenge at times, but oh, so rewarding.
What companies or organisations are you with?
