Good news day. Eric Oosterbroek is joining our team on 2nd December 2019 as the WBA Schools and Events Manager. Beginning his working career as a high school teacher in Auckland, Eric has enjoyed a number of different roles across several spheres of society, even continents.

Eric has also held a variety of leadership positions over the years, in educational institutions, the marketplace, church and charity organisations. In more recent years, he has been a self-employed trainer and consultant for an international organisation. Eric values people, helping them learn, find their ‘fit’ and contribute, whilst enjoying the process together.

In his spare time, he loves hanging out with his family, reading thought-provoking material, watching movies, experiencing different cultures and landscapes, running, music, and following sports of almost all flavours – but particularly English football in the colours of Tottenham Hotspur.

I appreciate you joining me in providing a warm welcome for Eric.
