Nerys Hood

LMS Project Manager

"I have over 25 years of experience in learning & development, including 20 years at The Salvation Army. I have had the opportunity of visiting every Corps and Social centre throughout ACT, NSW and QLD, seeing the amazing work at The Salvation Army and the impact we have on thousands of communities and people’s lives. As I visited each site, I recognised the need to develop our workers, so that we could become a stronger Army.

After helping to establish Learning & Development in ACT, NSW and QLD, I have focussed on delivering development opportunities via online solutions. I believe in equality of learning and due to our geographic dispersed workforce, we need to look at ways of delivering learning via all methods, to ensure learning opportunities are available for all our workers. If I can help you with any virtual or online training need, I’m a phone call away."
