A former HR Director, CHRO and COO Audrey has operated a management development consultancy business for over 35 years. She presents topics over a wide spectrum of leadership roles and responsibilities and enjoys the challenge of working with teams in crisis and dispute resolution. 

Audrey has served on Eastern Idaho Technical College’s board of directors (now the College of Eastern Idaho), and as adjunct faculty for Boise State University and the College of Eastern Idaho’s leadership development programs. 

Audrey serves on the Council’s Apprentice Committee and is a strong advocate of vocational training having worked with work-based awards in the UK. Audrey believes that technical qualifications designed with a specific job sector focus, delivering the underpinning knowledge, and practical skills and abilities an individual needs to obtain employment, or demonstrate the level of current competency can be of huge benefit to organizations in the development of their strategic workforce. The fact that training is on the job means less time away from the organization and, if so desired, many technical awards can be used to access other levels of qualifications.
