Angela Connell-Richards

Chief Executive Officer and Founder

Angela is the key driver to the success of Vivacity, due to her vivacious commitment to supporting businesses in the training industry to reach their full business potential.   

Angela has been working in the training industry for over 20 years and during that time she has owned and operated two successful RTOs, this is where Angela first gained first-hand experience in effectively navigating the complexities of compliance.  She knows the issues that RTO/CRICOS business owners and managers deal with each day. Along with her talented team, Angela provides innovative tools and comprehensive on-going support to ensure that not only will an RTO be deemed compliant, but will also thrive financially within the industry.  

Angela loves working with the decision makers within the training industry, as it aligns with her goal of changing lives through education. Her vision is to empower the training industry, through the provision of systems and processes, to achieve excellence.
