Our People

Sharyn Fewster


Sharyn's mantra is 'back yourself and always have a go'. Her background is instructional design and program management in the educational technologies and multimedia area, and she’s been employed in this space for over 25 years.

Sharyn's passion lays in the provision of content to anyone, anywhere and over any platform at anytime; she is a believer that all content must have longevity and be maintainable 'on the fly'; it must be current, accurate and relevant - and, of course, be presented with that 'WOW' factor using the latest in learning technologies.

Sharyn has been recognised by the Department of Defence and the Australian Interactive Multimedia Association for excellence in Project Management and Instructional Design. She was made a member of the 2012 and 2013 New Media Consortium Horizon Board for New and Emerging Technologies; the knowledge and research emanating from this experience is being filtered into the planning and design that underpins NKS.

Graham has been in the software development and IT industry for over 25 years and is known by the younger members of the NKS team as the 'oldie'. If something needs doing, Graham gets it done, from project management, business analysis, design and coding to all the yucky business stuff like accounting, paying bills and doing tax.

Graham is a Project Manager par excellence, who has been a member of PRINCE2 project boards. He is a professional member of The British and Australian Computer Society and a Chartered IT Professional.

Graham has worked for numerous top-shelf organisations such as the Department of Defence, News Limited (News Corporation), Virgin Atlantic Airways, Crawley, UK, National Westminster Bank (UK).
