DTE Staff Hierarchy

Key Business Development Personnel:

KIM BRUNSWICK (Director)
Kim Brunswick is the sole Director and original founder of Down to Earth. In the past, Kim worked as a plant operator in Civil Construction and Mining until he sustained a serious shoulder injury in 1998. The injury changed his career from plant operator to trainer. After his shoulder reconstruction in 1999, Kim decided to pursue a career in training because he felt passionate about teaching and understood the importance of safety and compliance. After working several years as an accredited trainer and assessor for several RTOs in Western Australia he decided to go private and founded Down to Earth Training and Assessing, initially a ‘one man, one trainer business’. In the early days of DTE incorporation, he worked alone all across Australia mainly providing training services to remote shires, towns and indigenous communities. Thanks to Kim’s industry knowledge and good principles of RTO governance, Down to Earth has grown into a nationally recognised registered training organisation servicing large corporate clients in mining, construction, logistics and engineering industries. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family and taking care of his fish aquarium.
