Jock Noble

I have worked in twenty countries with most time spent in India, Kenya, Indonesia, USA , Australia and Armenia. My current role with World Vision International is to lead a Learning Hub for Economic Development in 9 countries between Pakistan  and Romania. I am based in Yerevan Armenia. Previously with World Vision Australia I founded and lead the Social Entrepreneurship and Economic Development Unit (SEED), a team of economic development specialists,to establish and support innovative initiatives in poor communities from Africa to the AsiaJock Noble Garni 2014 Pacific, Senegal to Timor Leste..

I believe the reason people are poor is that they do not have enough money and our challenge is to help instill hope and a genuine sense of self-belief, starting with those of us who somehow work in development.

I was the founder and CEO of Diversity@work Australia Inc, a social enterprise developing innovative models, strategies and educational programs to strengthen companies through diversity and inclusion. I hold a Master of Entrepreneurship and Innovation and a Masters of Strategic Foresight from Swinburne University in Melbourne, post-graduate studies in Not for Profit Management at  Georgetown University and Negotiation and Conflict Management at Latrobe University Melbourne.  I was the Carey Medal winner for 2007 for exceptional and outstanding service to the community. So it goes

I am also the founder of the famous Yerevan Surf Club, whose motto has never changed

Everything is possible in Armenia

    Hi Jock! Was your dad Ian MacMullen Noble? I’m doing some family research, and Ian is connected to my family. He had a son named Jock and I would love to exchange some info if you are the correct person.
