…for a brighter future.

Stuart BarrettHead of Faculty
Business Leadership and Management

As a trainer/assessor with TrainSmart Australia, I am blessed to work in an industry that rewards me for helping people realise their potential and setting them on their way to achieving great things.

I have been around long enough to have experienced and learned a lot. In one role or another I’ve been involved in training and education in the private and government sectors for most of my working life.

In my spare time, some of my focus has been on putting my passions and skills to good use by supporting organisations and projects that I really care about, such as Newtown Neighbourhood Centre, a support service for homeless and disadvantaged people. Everyone experiences failure and adversity; we’re all subject to the rules of gravity and averages. Or, as Plutarch said,

“The future bears down upon each one of us
with all the hazards of the unknown”.

What matters is how we respond to what life throws at us, and how we stay motivated to keep going.

For that reason, I have always been keenly interested in goal-setting and motivation. Because behind every goal is the drive to be happy and fulfilled.

For relaxation, I like to read books (the printed ones), and go for long walks with my partner.
