Linking business, community and government in Nambour

Dean Sherwell

Dean Sherwell has been the Business Development Lead for TAFE Queensland – East Coast region for nearly three years, during which time he has forged a strong partnership with Nambour Alliance by working together on a number of projects. Dean has orchestrated TAFE Queensland’s involvement within the Alliance to help ensure projects run smoothly, while Nambour’s next generation of workers and performers receive valuable hands-on experience.

As the regional Business Development Lead for the Sunshine Coast and Wide Bay regions, Dean is tasked with helping link businesses with the latest in learning and training innovation – a role he takes great pride in. In fact TAFE pride runs in his family, with Dean’s father also having worked for TAFE Queensland.

Dean has over 20 years of experience in business, training, human resources and recruitment, having worked for the likes of global and national organisations BHP Billiton Bayside Group as well as small business. This extensive experience has provided him with a unique insight into how having the right people in the right positions can help businesses and organisations achieve great things.

With Nambour home to one of TAFE Queensland East Coast region’s most popular campuses, the future of this town is important to Dean, which is why he is so intent on helping deliver the best outcomes possible as a member and director of Nambour Alliance.
