Welcome to ISM's Blog, Think Tank

At ISM we provide leading edge training and development programs leading to high quality nationally recognised training. From our trainers to our resources, we are specialists in financial services and focus on helping you achieve tangible results for your business. 

Over the next few months we will be doing a staff spotlight each week on our wonderful ISM staff members who are the heart of ISM. 

Meet... Lana Horgan! 


How long have you been at ISM and what is your role? 

7 wonderful months! I work in administration and events. You will find me doing anything from helping students with any questions they have to making sure your experience is memorable when you hire a suite for your next meeting here with us at Jones Bay Wharf. 

What has changed since you first joined? 

Unfortunately, a couple of weeks after I started the pandemic hit. For ISM, this meant we needed to think outside of the box in order to still deliver our courses (we usually run our courses face to face).

Best advice you can give to someone considering studying at ISM? 

Just go for it, baby! ISM really takes pride in all of their students, we work closely with each learner to make sure their time studying at ISM is enjoyable and as easy as possible. We are here for our students and whatever they need. 

What is your favourite thing about working at ISM? 

I love that no two days are the same. Everyday I learn something new, we are one big family and everyone is willing to help.

Tell us 3 words that come to mind when you think of ISM? 

Authentic, Proactive & Experienced. 


First concert?

Miley Cyrus 

Favourite place you have traveled and why? 

Malaysia. It was such a beautiful place. 

Any hidden talents?

Unfortunately, none that I can think of... I can sleep in a swag in -7 degrees celsius, does that count!?

Guilty pleasure? 

Fresh linen... I know, I know but I can't help it! Im obsessed. 

If you could learn to do anything… what would it be? 

Snowboard... currently at beginner level so we are getting there!
