Our Team

Gary Rose - Rose Training Australia

Gary Rose

BEd. | GDEd | MEd (in progress) | MBPsych (in progress)

Rose Training Australia’s CEO Gary Rose has been an educator and public speaker for over 30 years.

Gary has always seen his role as a public speaker or educator as a vocation rather than a job. It was this passion that inspired Gary to start Rose Training Australia, which he has used as a platform to help thousands of students.

When Gary’s not too busy helping in his Rose Training community, you can catch him at the cricket nets, or playing his guitar in a good old fashioned sing-along.

Mandy is the Accounts Administrator and has been with the Rose Training family for just over 5 years. She looks after the financial day to day running of the office and looks after student invoices, etc. When she is not playing with figures at Rose Training, she loves spending time with her husband and two beautiful girls. Mandy loves to entertain and cook up a storm – her fresh pasta even rivals “Nonna’s”. If you need anything relating to the accounts side of things at Rose Training, then Mandy’s the girl for you.

Serge-Rossignol - Rose Training Australia

Serge Rossignol


Serge is Rose Training Australia’s resident PCBU and he knows as many Work Health and Safety facts as he does bad jokes. (He knows an awful lot about work health and safety!) Before joining the Rose Training Family, Serge was a teacher and school principal. When he’s not ensuring the safety of his friends at Rose Training Australia, Serge loves throwing a hammer around (in a very WHS concious manner) and playing the guitar around a camp fire.

Merisa Holland - Rose Training Australia

Merisa Holland

TAE Trainer

Merisa likes to think of herself as a ‘treasure hunter’…. helping to find the gold within people and leading them to discover the gems around them.  Merisa is a life long learner and finds the  most enjoyable thing about being a trainer is watching people catch new ideas and concepts and putting them into practice in their own individual way.   Merisa enjoys having a good laugh, camping, hanging out by the ocean and spending time with family and her dog Molly. Oh yeah, and coffee!!
