FutureMedia was founded by managing director Kerry Wonka in 1976.
Prior to establishing FutureMedia, Kerry Wonka, worked in the Australian Broadcasting Corporation as a Training Officer. He subsequently managed the University of Sydney Television Service where he produced several hundred television lectures for students. He also produced several Adult Education television series for Channel 7 as well as a number of training videos for Government Departments.
Immediately prior to the foundation of the company, he lectured in communications for several years at the University of Technology, Sydney. FutureMedia was a co-founding member of the AudioVisual Distributors’ Association of Australia, and Kerry was the president for several years. He holds a BA Hons, M.A. and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Communications.
Products are available for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S), Human Resources (HR) and Technical Skills training. While many training video needs can be met by off the shelf programs, there may be situations where some versioning or changes need to be made - and in some cases a total custom production may be the only solution. With many years of experience in the area, we are able to provide this service which can include the development of trainer’s guides, PowerPoint presentations as well as video/DVD delivery of content.
Aside from the core business of video distribution and production, FutureMedia has also organised many private and public speaking tours for internationally renowned safety advocates including Charlie Morecraft and Ken Woodward.
FutureMedia’s clients include most of Australia’s largest companies in a wide variety of industries including mining, energy, manufacturing, oil and gas production/exploration, tertiary education institutions, and local state and federal government departments.
