Bernie Mitchell

Bernie is a highly experienced senior leader and manager with an extensive understanding of the complexity of organisational and people development. As a former senior police officer, Bernie achieved the rank of Chief Superintendent and was responsible for a large urban division before moving into the role of Organisational Talent Manager.

Bernie was hugely successful in leading organisational change and identifying and removing inhibitors to enhanced performance through application of a broad span of operational experience and strategy development. His comprehensive understanding of learning and development theory and practice, and a proven track record of transferring this into highly successful development programmes for senior leaders, made training and development an ideal choice for his continued career.

Since joining the ioda training team, Bernie has delivered Leadership and Management skills workshops to a range of organisations in both accredited and non-accredited programmes. However, it is as our Project Management specialist that he has supported ioda the most where his insight into the delivery of training in this often-complex topic has provided us with new and exciting ways to deliver our workshops
