ABOUT DR DION KLEIN
The majority of my life has been centred around education and training having started my career in my mid-teens teaching swimming (seems that many fellow teachers have this in common).
With over 30 years international experience as an educator and entrepreneur, I have taught thousands of people in the areas of business, sports administration, fitness and health. Using this experience, I write training and assessment materials for Registered Training Organisations mainly in the areas of sport, fitness, recreation and health qualifications. Check out www.fitnesseducationmaterials.com.
Additionally, I have assisted business owners, companies and not-for-profits in many ways including developing their business via marketing and sales, analysing market research, shifting mindset and culture, executing strategy, increasing productivity, securing fundraising, and increasing workplace well-being.
My latest venture is iPledg, a reward-based crowdfunding platform and boutique fundraising consultancy. Our focus is educating individuals, not-for-profit organisations, and entrepreneurs on how to construct a successful campaign to attract funds.
Peers consider me a connector, an innovator and a strategist. Having owned companies in the areas of IT, business consulting, travel, sport, fitness, corporate health, and education, I offer a plethora of experiences to draw upon to find solutions. I can access my vast international network when there are situations that need further expertise and insights.
