Mr Steve Atherton has been a professional Trainer and Workshop Facilitator for over 18 years.
Experienced Instructor and Facilitator.
He has trained for organisations all over the world, and has represented other education companies such as IBM, Wizard Corporate Training, Institute of Management, ATI Mirage, Sigma Training Solutions, Amcom Education, Lotus, PD Training and many more.
In fact it's often his face you'll see in front of the classroom when you pay more at a bigger training provider - so why not come direct?
Real world Experience.
Steve has a practical background in Project Management, Staff Management and Leadership.
He started as an Officer in the Royal Australian Navy, during which time he was involved in various Leadership, Management and Project Management duties. Following this, he joined a mid-sized training organisation as a Software Development Project Manager and then Divisional Manager. He has run his own successful software development and training company since 1999.
Steve is ideally suited to delivering the courses we offer due to both his experience as an instructor, and his real world experience using the habits, processes and tools taught.
Synergy Innovations has been providing successful training and consulting services to business and government for the past 15 years.
We are small and versatile by design, and only have a select set of clients for whom we want to provide a real alternative to the larger training providers in the Perth market who are often focussed mainly on ‘bums on seats’ to cover their larger oveheads.
We do this by providing our clients with:
Some typical feedback
Here is some feedback from a few of our clients.
'The feedback from all of Steve's training sessions at has been 100% positive. The ability to customise the sessions to meet our business needs is essential in ensuring our employees are gaining skills which are useful and relevant. I would highly recommend Synergy Innovations for providing a great service which is value for money'
(Tina, from a medium sized Engineering and Project Management Company)
"Here is the feedback from the Visio course you ran for us recently – great feedback & comments. We also had very positive comments about the course for XXXX in Bunbury.
(Sally, from a medium sized Training Company.)
I was incredibly impressed with the level of attention Steve gave us. Most training companies only gave lip service to customising the course, but Steve came out and spoke with us a few times, asked the right questions and went through our systems with us. We ended up with a very professional Project Management workshop, customised exactly to our needs.
(Dave, from a major private school)
We're confident in our ability to produce great training outcomes, and have done so for many years, but if a client or course participant are not happy with the training they have received, we will work with them directly to try and meet the outcomes.
If they are still not happy, then we will provide a 100% refund for the cost of the training.
