I have a long industry and academic experience. I have worked for more than fifteen years as a financial manager, financial adviser and chief accountant in the industry. Ten of those years of experience were in managing his own business. Since 2010, I have been working as a coordinator/lecturer of finance and accounting subjects in tertiary level. I joined the Holmes Institute (Melbourne Campus) in July 2017.
