Artibus Innovation

Our Team

Paul Byrne | Chairman Paul is the Chair of Artibus Innovation.  He is well respected in the VET sector and has extensive experience in overseeing the development and review of national training products and services – both through his time as a General Manager and later CEO of the Australian National Training Authority, his chairmanship of Australian training Products Limited and as interim CEO of the national Innovation and Business Industry Skills Council. He has a deep knowledge of the national VET system and its evolution and an excellent understanding of the strategic, technical and stakeholder engagement challenges involved in developing training packages and associated national training products.
David Morgan | CEO David has an extensive understanding of training package design, structure, development and implementation gained through his former role leading a former Industry Training Advisory Board (ITAB) and as consultant to many Industry Skills Councils. Importantly, when leading the ITAB he was deeply involved in the development and implementation of 15 national training packages across the Arts, Printing, Sport & Recreation, ICT and Contact Centre industries. In his current role at The Work Lab, David has been instrumental in the development of a range of software and data services that utilise training package content. These services have underpinned the delivery of a number of large scale public skill intervention services such as Skilling Solutions Queensland, the Victorian Skill Store initiative and TradeSet – Trades Recognition Australia skills assessments of 457 migrants entering Australia.
Nick McShane | Director Nick, through his extensive work in licensing and regulation, has an excellent understanding of the licencing and regulatory implications for training package development and the need to ensure robust stakeholder engagement of industry regulators. He has been involved in a number of national projects that have sought to improve the interface between the national VET system and industry regulators – this included co-authoring the seminal report ‘A Licence to Skill’ for ANTA that resulted in a range of changes to how industry regulators were involved in training package review and development.
