MEET THE TEAM
Phil Hudson | AKA First Aid Phil.
I am the founder and Managing Director of Workplace First Aid Training LTD.
I have spent 10 years working as a SCUBA Diving Instructor, 5 years as District Manager of Surf Life Saving Otago and I also teach Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET) Courses. I have always pursued what interests me as that way it would never feel like I am working and I’ve always been involved with roles that benefit others. I live by a motto that “If a student failed to learn, I failed to teach them”. When I’m not developing the company, you can most likely find me at the beach, at a river fishing, underwater somewhere or out in the great outdoors of New Zealand. It’s research so I can take the children out to share the experience with them when they’re old enough.
It is my pleasure to be an Account Manager based in Wanaka looking after our Central Otago Customers and Sales Inquires.
I have 16 years Management experience and I love dealing with people of all ages in a friendly and helpful way.
Being part of community events and enjoying the outdoors with my family are two of the things I enjoy in my time off from work. As a mother of three children I find my role very rewarding.
I look forward to meeting you and supporting your individual needs to achieve your First Aid requirements with our fantastic Instructors.
If you are in the Central Otago Area and have any questions regarding the training we provide or would like to talk over your needs please don’t hesitate to contact me on 027 254 6668.
Hi I’m Aliesha, I come from a media background and I’m loving being a part of the team as the HR Manager and Administrator. I keep active and play touch rugby, netball and soccer. In my spare time I like to be outside exploring our beautiful country with my friends and family.

I have been working for the University of Otago at the School of Physiotherapy since 2007. In that time I have been involved in teaching on multiple papers for both undergraduate and post-graduate students and have been involved in various multi-disciplinary teams. The duties required include clinical supervision in physiotherapy clinics, organising and teaching labs, taking lectures, and contributing to organisational meetings for various papers. In addition I am one of the service providers for the Otago University High Performance Rowing Centre, and work as an occupational physiotherapist. A significant part of my job is educating people, be they students, rowers, patients, or workers who are having trouble at work.
I have worked in the Private Training Establishment (PTE) sector since 1997. I initially worked as a tutor and later education manager under the umbrella of Adventure education in the areas of scuba instruction, first aid and retail education.
I subsequently worked and training manager and later general manager for a site under the umbrella of Academy of diving Trust.
I was asked to join the Board of Trustees for the Academy of diving Trust and assisted in governance in that capacity for two year. I am currently college Manager of Community College Dunedin. Our PTE delivers education for TEC, MSD, and MOE in the areas of hospitality, outdoor, foundation learning, employment skills, life skills and rest home care.
I am also a member of the governance group for Community College NZ Ltd.
Throughout this time I have developed strong links in the education sector in a wide variety of areas and in particular with other PTEs, ITOs and NZQA.
I am a passionate and highly motivated Leader with a focus on building a winning culture, sharing best practice, leading change and delivering outstanding results.
I have enjoyed success in a variety of roles within Spark NZ and have 19 years of ICT industry experience working and managing teams across multiple segments – Consumer, SME Business, Corporate and Enterprise.
My ability to build effective relationships both internally & externally, passion for people, high personal standards, drive and competitive nature has enabled me to become a leader in my field.
I’m also Sparks Regional Manger overseeing all franchises in the South Island.
I am an experienced industry expert, with strong track records, freethinking styles and the diversity of skills needed to help medium and large organisations achieve their strategic goals leveraging a solid IT strategy. I also joined the board of Anglican Family Care in December 2014 with the desire to give back to our community. I’m currently the Chief Information Officer at Well South and has over twenty years of experience in information technology. I’m particularly interested in strategy development and look forward to working with other Board members to build long-term sustainability as well as increased collaborations and partnerships with other organisations.
