“Tina has a deep understanding of industry and the link between organisational goals, workplace training needs and foundation skills. Combined with her expertise in vocational education and training policies, products and practices, Tina is an expert in identifying and communicating with industry about the strategic benefits of training to an organisation and their employees.
In the time that we worked together Tina established industry partnerships with organisations in manufacturing, aged care, disability services, childcare, food processing and local government. She consulted with organisations to identify training needs aligned to organisational goals and developed and presented detailed and practical training solutions. As a result Tina was instrumental in securing significant training sales.
Tina has a friendly nature, is a great listener and communicator and is easy to work with. I recommend her without hesitation.”

“I have known Tina Berghella, Director, Oggi Consulting, since 2012 when she worked on NCVER funded research that I contract managed titled Seeking the N in LLN.
While applying strict research methodologies, Tina brings the important view point of the practitioner lens to her research. She is interested in how research applies in the real world and is focussed on practical research outcomes.
Tina has a strong awareness of herself as a learner and I found her to be open to feedback in the form of constructive criticism and ideas for improvement.
I have no hesitation in recommending Tina Berghella.”
Michelle CircelliSenior Research Officer, National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
“After interviewing several people for our project, we felt confident that Tina was the person for the job. This was because she had taken the time to research our program and had a good grasp of our expectations and needs.
Working with Tina in the health literacy and numeracy area has been a huge learning curve. Tina stepped us through the process and helped us clarify what we were hoping to achieve.
Tina delivered reports and revisions in a timely manner and followed this up with group meetings to discuss and clarify her recommendations.”

“Tina Berghella was GSA’s training package quality assurance consultant from January 2012 to November 2015. Over that time she reviewed and prepared quality reports for eleven GSA training package submissions against the Training Package Development Handbook and, more recently, the Standards for Training Packages. Her approach is to undertake a comprehensive review of the components against the requirements and document any concerns and questions in an issues register. She then reviews GSA responses and identifies any that need further clarification. Tina has always involved GSA staff in the process and has sought to come to a fair outcome. GSA would recommend Tina Berghella.”

“I first approached Oggi Consulting in mid-2013 as we were looking for a quality review of documentation to support a Training Package submission to the Commonwealth government. We sought expertise in editorial skills and a significant depth of knowledge and understanding of current policy in the vocational education and training sector (VET) and commitment to quality principles.
Oggi Consulting assisted us by providing a thorough and prompt review of the documentation provided together with insightful advice that contributed to a higher quality product. We have subsequently contracted Oggi Consulting on several occasions since and continue to be appreciative of both the diligence with which projects are approached and the considered suggestions and remarks provided. Each of these projects have benefitted as a result of these characteristics.
The aspects I particularly like in the approach adopted to each piece of work is Tina’s collaborative approach and the methodical process that she applies to her work. Clear and honest communication are also key attributes as is effective time management which have made each experience successful.
I would recommend Oggi Consulting to individuals and organisations who prize quality, attention to detail and depth of understanding of VET policies and processes.
I have no hesitation in recommending Oggi Consulting.”
Joy HarrisPolicy and Quality Assurance, Services Skills Australia
“Oggi Consulting understands the role industry plays in training package development and the need to develop a product that is fit for purpose. They apply policy in the spirit in which it is intended to overcome the challenges in the industry. I recommend Oggi Consulting for their good working interpretation of what is needed for quality in the real world, their utilitarian approach and their keen eye for making sure things are consistent.”

“Tina was recommended to me when MSA was looking for an independent quality auditor for a project we were undertaking for the Commonwealth government. Her expertise in the area of numeracy, especially as it applies to the manufacturing industry made her the ideal person for this role in this project. Her input assisted MSA to develop a quality product from the project and her objective and independent advice was invaluable for what was an innovative project,
Since working with Tina on this particular project, MSA developed a close working relationship with Tina which resulted in MSA supporting the Australian Workplace Practitioners’ Network (AWPN). We worked closely with Tina last year to collaborate on the AWPN annual conference.
With the future of Industry Skills Councils still uncertain, MSA would like to take this opportunity to thank Tina for her contributions to our work in the area of foundation skills, particularly numeracy. We would have no hesitation in recommending Tina or in working with Tina in the future. We found her to be extremely knowledgeable and also very willing to assist. She was approachable, open to discussion and feedback and reliable.”
