Derek Milligan

A postgraduate professional with extensive experience in the leadership & management of international adult education backed up with a practical extensive management career in the hospitality and customer service industry Australia wide.

My passion is to share my industry experiences and knowledge with students who are keen to engage and learn. I believe learning is a 2-way process in any of my classes. My professional care and passion for students to succeed, combined with a sense of humour brings a positive atmosphere to the classroom.

I believe in lifelong learning & applying reflective practices towards the goal of improvement.

My educational philosophy is ‘Learning is directly proportional to the amount of fun you are having’.
