Marie O'Donnell

I have over 10 years’ experience of managing and leading together with over 15 years’ experience in teaching leadership, management and teacher training. My experience ensures that I can relate to your workplace issues and offer realistic, practical solutions. I have taught extensively across the three sectors; public, private and voluntary which enables me to understand issues facing all three sectors.I have a strong background in managing and developing others and my goal in life is to see others thrive.I don’t teach from the textbook. Yes, they are important however life doesn’t always work like it does in the movies and work doesn’t always work the same way as it does in books. That said, reading is important therefore I try to bring management models to life using my own work experience so that they make more sense and can be applied to improve your working practice.I also realise that some learners are daunted by what I call ‘management babble’. I will help you to understand this ‘babble’ but more importantly, I won’t be using it in my sessions. I use plain English so everyone can understand. I have also taught many learners from Europe and the rest of the world so it is important to avoid jargon so that everyone gets a good learning experience.
