He is a highly experienced educator and leader with a passion for bringing out the best in people – be it on the sports field, in the classroom or the workplace.

What started as a career in sports, after gaining his Masters in Sports Management, led to a life in education with Kyle discovering his natural aptitude for teaching after time spent coaching professional players and young children cricket, while studying at Sydney University.
