Natalia Huber

Natalia is the company’s Vision Leader (i.e. Business Manager). She is passionate about re-imagining education for the Library and Information Services (LIS) sector, and delivering that vision. Natalia has over 9 years of experience working in adult learning, particularly from an organisational development and psychology perspective. She specialises in innovation, strategy development and delivery, blended learning solutions, and engaging adult learning experiences. Her greatest passion is helping people realise their passions for whatever they are or want to be doing. She is a crazy cat lady (with only two cats… but she’s working on it), and loves travelling and experiencing new cultures. Natalia loves libraries because they are magical places for the imagination. Libraries are places where you are illuminated with new ideas, thoughts, stories and journeys. They provide access to life-long learning, and in her eyes, that is what this crazy life is about. She reads mainly non-fiction and professional development books, but her favourite book is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. She also has a (secret) soft spot for Edward The Emu, by Sheena Knowles.
