Konnecting you with your future.
It’s the passion that drives us!
At Konnect Learning we like to make it all about you and your growth, but on this page we get to introduce ourselves and how the Konnect Learning family all work together to make it happen. We’re proud of the team and we wouldn’t want it any other way.
Konnect Learning is your one-stop shop for all your corporate training and development needs. Our breadth of product ensures a range of personal development tools are available for you to enhance your skill-set, broaden your understanding and aid your professional growth.
Internally, we are a small family run company. Our small size enables us to offer you the best training for the most competitive prices. We’re big enough for delivery but small enough for economy.
Our products are painstakingly researched; evolving alongside industry needs and trends, which ensure you evolve alongside your industry. Our courses provide the skills and knowledge you need to stay ahead of changing regulation, procedure and best practice. Whatever your knowledge needs, we will meet and surpass your expectations. It’s what we’re known for.
“If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it’s not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.”— Dalai Lama
Learning shouldn’t be boring or tedious. Our trainers are at the top of their game and put as much effort into engaging you throughout your training, as we do into researching the programs they deliver. We want you to enjoy your experience with Konnect Learning as much as we enjoy being a part of Konnect Learning.
Dare to know
What makes us who we are, are the people, our philosophies and our passion in developing products that see individuals succeed and grow. Our training techniques work and we are dedicated to empowering people with knowledge – knowledge that is reliable, up to date and practical. The power to make a change in your life comes from your knowledge base and the courage to be ready for that change. Join us and dare to know.

Head of all stuff
Dana is the brainchild behind Konnect Learning. She came up with our motto, “Big enough for delivery, small enough for economy” and makes sure everyone works to excellence all the time, so our clients are receiving great value. Dana’s been in the conference and training space for over 10 years, and has worked in Australia and overseas in senior roles in both sales and production for international conference companies before becoming General Manager and then Managing Director for a boutique conference and training provider in Australia. That company entered the BRW’s fastest growing companies three times; Dana has amazing experience in the business administration of a start up.
Sam previously worked with Dana as the Head of Training, where he was in charge of researching the best programs and seeking out the right trainer for each one. He decided that Konnect was in his future when he realised it would also involve a cooked lunch every day and drinks on Friday, so now he works at ensuring the programs under the Konnect Learning banner are really the best, with the most qualified, engaging speakers around or he doesn’t get Friday drinks. He pretends that he’s a journalist by trade and gets shirty whenever anyone messes with his copy, but deep down he really loves being a trainer handler and general communications god.
Chief Organisational Officer
Chantel abandoned the Lightbody name by getting married in 2013, but she’s still a Lightbody at heart. Chantel brings the best experience you could possibly have in organising over 140 events a year; she was a full time mum of three before being persuaded to re-join the working world as our Chief Organisational Officer. Chantel can organise the diary of everyone, handle all of our customer inquiries, book all our venues, manage all the invoicing and still make sure we’ve all got a coffee by 10am. No job is too big or too small. We want you to call us, so Chantel has more people to talk to but she’ll also answer your queries and make sure you’re taken care of.
Head of Morale and People Engagement
Scooter lives with Dana all week long but comes to the office to help with engagement and morale Monday to Wednesday. He’s a great listener and generally rotates through all team member for pats and belly rubs which makes everyone, mostly Scooter, feel happy.
