From here, a passion for education was swiftly established and Vic’s international career commenced. He later spent 14 years as a key member of the Pivot Point Production and Development Team in Chicago and was seconded to Pivot Point US for one year (to train the trainer in Competency Based Training). As education continued to evolve – the way it was executed and consumed – Vic joined the production team in 2007 where he created curriculum from the ground up and across interactive formats including video, online and more traditional book formats.
Vic has well and truly found his place back in Melbourne where he has hit the ground running with essential contribution to the many new training initiatives to roll out in 2021.
“I like being back in the mix of teaching because a) I can see how Pivot Point resources work in the classroom and b) I really like the interaction with the students,” he said.
“Students today really question everything – its relevance and methodology – and for this reason I am welcoming ongoing ideas around how to improve both content and delivery methods.”
