Verified Professional Profile

ABRT Board Member *** Restricted Profile (Sensitive Information – please contact Tom via ABRT email address) 

Tom has 15 years experience in Security and Defence, initially in the UK before moving to Australia via a skills based lateral transfer. A proficient commander, Tom’s passion lies in leadership and training.

He has held roles developing Regulatory Commissioned leaders at Royal Air Force College, Cranwell and specialist leadership development for Dismounted Close Combat military personnel. Tom has trained units from a plethora of countries, notably developing, resourcing and delivering the first bi-lateral training programs with the Ukrainian and other military forces.

Tom has used his experience and knowledge from his time in the military as a way to create tools that anyone can use to develop their leadership skills both for leading themselves and others. It is interesting that much of the academic learning that is applied within corporate leadership courses have direct overlap in parallel with many of the tools and skills that Tom has arrived at independently.

In addition to this, Tom has developed many more tools that he has incorporated in business leadership, family, wellbeing, and elsewhere in life. Tom’s unique background has enabled him to train and utilise many of his leadership skills over the years to maximise organisational functionality, build team resilience, and decisively yet calmly use lateral thinking in crisis situations.
