Krishna Dawson (CEO/Director)
Krishna entered the floristry industry whilst still managing her family construction company. After completing a non recognised course she realised there was a definite need for quality training in the industry and spent the next twelve months working and developing the training package along with Sue to enable the college to become a Nationally Recognised Training Organisation. She continues to run the day to day organisation of the business and also has a passion for the industry.
Susan Young (Trainer & Assessor)
Sue is our Head Trainer and Assessor with 30 years experience in the floristry industry and holds a TAE40110 qualification. Sue has a passion for teaching and enjoys watching the development of her students, some of whom have little confidence when they commence the course and grow into competent shop ready florists, happy and confident in their skills. Sue ensures she keeps up with the industry by still working in shops on occasion, entering the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers Floral Competition, having won a first and third prize there in the last two years.
