By managers, for managers – that is the principle through which AIM selects, endorses and ultimately entrusts to its talented pool of facilitators the important task of educating the future managers of Australia.

AIM’s facilitators are selected on the basis of both their skills as presenters and their academic and practical experience. We take very seriously the notion that the art and science of management is best imparted by those who have been down that road and continue to practise in the area of management.

Facilitators delivering this course include:

Dr Neil Pearson
Neil is an experienced senior manager with highly advanced leadership skills. He draws upon a vast wealth of experience and knowledge to build, inspire, coach and develop winning teams and career-driven individuals. He is a strategic thinker who interacts and engages professionally with Executive Management teams. Neil's extensive portfolio as a business professional includes well-honed program & project management skills which enable him to support change-management across the business. This is demonstrated by the positions Neil has held in the ICT industry and general management across Australia, the United Kingdom and North America.
