About the course facilitator

She worked for ten years as a trainer and facilitator at the University of Sydney. In 2006, she founded Think Learn Succeed – a business which delivers training courses and coaching. Eleanor loves working with ‘positive deviants’. These are people who differ from the norm in constructive ways. They’re people who think, talk and behave in ways that change the world. Eleanor works with positive deviants to create vibrant business cultures and peak performance.
