About Wendy Cole
i-Mastery’s Director and Lead Facilitator
Hi, my name is Wendy. My mission is to help people in business apply strategies that will enable them to be their best and do their best work. I design and facilitate leadership, management, productivity, and recruitment workshops and I have been facilitating these workshops since 2003.
Having completed a Bachelor of Behavioural Sciences (double major in Psychology), I started my professional career with a multi-national recruitment company holding a variety of recruiting and leadership roles in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and the USA. Throughout this time I successfully led teams through periods of rapid growth and change and attained extensive management experience.
In 2005, I started my own company, iPeople, a recruitment and training company with offices in both Melbourne and Sydney. I sold the recruiting division of iPeople in 2010, and retained and developed the training consultancy division, i-Mastery.
In addition to my undergraduate degree in psychology I have a Graduate Diploma in Entrepreneurship and Innovation from Swinburne University. I hold professional membership with the Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI), Recruitment and Consulting Services Association (RCSA), and the Australian Institute of Training and Development (AITD). I have completed Advanced Facilitation Skills Training with the AITD and I am an accredited HBDITM (Hermann Brain Dominance Instrument) practitioner.
The people I have had the privilege of training and mentoring tell me that they value my hands-on experience as a business owner, general manager, business-development manager and expert recruiter – clients seem to enjoy the real-world perspective that I bring to my workshops.
In my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors with my partner, Michael, and our two young daughters. I also enjoy reading, learning about nutrition and cooking with organic whole foods and I am grateful when I can consistently get to three or more yoga classes a week.
