Lionel Cranenburgh is one of Australia’s leading career advisors. For 30 years he has helped more school educators and managers from the WA Department of Education and Training and public sector to be promoted than almost any career development or career transition consultant.
His phenomenal success rate is possibly unequalled and can be attributed to a unique personalised approach.
While working with him people appreciate the enormous skills of this gifted educator, writer, presenter and career trainer who gives them an awesome resource.
Lionel was Head of English in government and private schools, school administrator in WA, University and TAFE lecturer in careers and a senior officer in central and district offices with appointments in WA and overseas.
Whether he is writing a job application for the police or nurses, helping Level 3 Classroom Teachers develop portfolios, resolving a dispute about careers or dealing with any issue in education Lionel’s exceptional experience and skills are unmatched.
Lionel’s global, national and local experience in career training and education helps educators, public servants, police and government clients to receive a wealth of information in career development fields. His international reputation led him to be invited to the world’s leading Canadian and British Universities, including Oxford and Cambridge, for research into effective ways of helping adults with their careers.
In 2001 he was given an international award for his contribution to career development and in 2002 he was the international choice of India’s top school to provide a workshop on education and problem-solving for teachers and principals. He is highly sought after to make presentations at WA schools and by the Education Department in WA on career development.
He is the first and only Australian to be selected and currently serving as Australian Advisor on careers and education on an International Education Board of highly acclaimed international advisors for a leading educational publication.

He has published thousands of articles in the West Australian and national magazines and was approached by Monash University and Dulwich College to promote their achievements.
