RCSA Affiliated Trainers

At RCSA we firmly believe that Learning and Development has a fundamental role to play in the success and prosperity of the recruitment and staffing space.


Nurturing and building the capability of recruiters has long been one of RCSA’s primary focus, and with a long track record of developing and delivering innovative learning and development we know what our members want and need.

We also know the strength and potential of the wider recruitment trainer network.

With Learning and Development integral to the attraction, upskilling, and retention of recruitment consultants, industry trainers are placed to play a key role in shaping the success of our industry for years to come.

With this in mind, RCSA has created the RCSA Affiliate Trainer framework.

RCSA's Affiliated Trainers are:

Sinead of Insightful Minds  has gathered a wealth of therapeutic experience across her career supporting organisations delivering Workplace Mental Health Training which encourages organisations to support knowledge in what is fast becoming one of the most important aspects to employee job satisfaction and staff retention.

Broadly, Sinead has supported The Salvation Army on a youth drug and alcohol program and Mission Australia as program manager for an adult mental health service and participants who join Sinead’s workshops immediately recognise her passion as a facilitator where each session is to remove some of the stigma around mental health and ensure it’s a part of more workplace conversations.

Chandell Labbozzetta

Chandell is a best-selling author, Master Trainer of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Sales Strategist, and Confidence Booster. Her personal sales close rate is consistently over 100% thanks to satisfied client’s persuasive referrals and her clients experience measurable increases in their own sales success almost overnight because of her empowering approach.

“Success comes from the inside, so I start with mindset,” says Chandell. “If you don't fix your mindset, it doesn’t matter what techniques you use you'll still be stuck on the sales rollercoaster.”

Founder at Life Puzzle, Chandell and her Team help business owners and sales professionals communicate confidently so they can easily demonstrate the value of their ideas, products, and services to others. This leads to greater influence, interest, and income.
