Prior to TripleC Lydia opened and ran a training academy for several years for The Gioma Group Company. She led and developed the train to train course for Gaucho Grills as head of the training team and assisted in the opening of several of their restaurants. Her role within these companies involved the day-to-day running of the training schools, organising trainers and staff, attendee development, and teaching the classes. Lydia’s teaching role within these companies involved her adapting programming and scheduling to make them as accessible as they could possibly be. As well as her work in training and development Lydia has also worked as a support worker and as the accounts marketing manager for a leading transport company. Lydia is currently designing and developing her own customised face masks that will be available in local artisan markets and online.
