About David Robinson

My name is David Robinson, Adult/TAE Trainer in Northwest Tasmania.

Before moving into adult education, I worked for a global cloud computing corporation and developed a farming business in Northern NSW. These industries highlighted the need for developing additional people to support them, this led to the desire to help people and businesses improve their skills and productivity through training. When not teaching adults, I teach STEM to kids at the Ulverstone HIVE Science Centre and play/learn with our own 2 boys.

  • Interviewed hundreds of people for Technical, Business and Farming roles.
