Training and Events Manager

Cathy Harshaw

I am responsible for trainings, courses and events both for our members and non-members. I am passionate about bringing people together and creating environments where research, learning and ideas can be shared and collaboration fostered. As a professional coach, experienced educator and Accredited Practitioner of the Institute for Outdoor Learning (APIOL) the design and delivery of high-quality training programmes for a diverse range of audiences is a skill I am excited to bring to the MBA. My passion for the seas started early, growing up on a beach in North-West Ireland, I spent my childhood rummaging in rock pools. This love of the ocean brought me to Plymouth in 2002 to study at the University of Plymouth. I graduated in 2005 with a BSc (Hons) in Marine Biology and Oceanography.
