Tony Hayes - Learning Specialist
Learn To Thrive
I am a Learning Specialist at Harvest. I am passionate about people and organisations and their potential to achieve great things.
I have over 20 years’ commercial experience and 15 years’ experience working and innovating in learning and development. My qualifications include a Bachelor of Arts in Economics (Hons) and Mathematics from UCC and an MSc in Human Resource Management from Sheffield University. I also hold an Advanced Diploma in Executive Coaching and have completed the eLearning Essentials programme here in Harvest. I am a Fellow of the Irish Institute of Training and Development (IITD).
I was a core Learning and Development team member at Arnotts Ltd. and Roches Stores where I held senior management positions with responsibility for Organisational Culture, Team Leader Development, Middle Management Development, Organisational and Personal Effectiveness, People Development and Management, Performance Management, 1:1 Coaching, Innovation in Learning and introducing eLearning and Blended Learning Solutions.
I enjoy working with clients to provide robust and impactful learning solutions that deliver a great return on investment.
I love rugby and am an active committee member of my rugby club. I recently began running for fitness and completed my first 5K race. I enjoy cooking and entertaining with friends and family.
