Darren Ball

Consultant, Professional Development, and Teacher in Melbourne, Australia

Teaching, Consultancy, and Professional Development.

Currently based in Melbourne

My passion for training and development started in 1982 when I first began learning traditional Japanese Martial Arts. Since then, I have incorporated the 'warrior virtues' of discipline, compassion, honour, selflessness, and patience to develop a powerful method of coaching. My path has taken me in some broad directions, including working in the education, first aid, security, hospitality, training, combat sports, natural healthcare, fitness, nutrition, team management and leadership fields.

I regularly travel around Australia, and to Japan every year, to further my knowledge as well as bring my coaching methodology to industry leaders.

I am currently working alongside some amazing people and facilitate Education and Training Specialist programs for the education sector.

"Some people are remembered for what they say. Some for what they do. Teachers, who are often not remembered, empower people to do both.

They are the silent poets of society, moving mountains of fear and doubt. They encourage and coax the unknown to come out and shine. The power they give is beyond compare. A true jewel of any community."

- from a PD I conducted for Teachers and the relevance of passion in their work.
