About me

I’m a connector and communicator.

 

I’ve built a project-based career helping organisations, individuals and communities connect, communicate and change for good:

  • Stronger relationships and reputations

  • New brands, technology, processes and structures

  • New skills, knowledge and opportunities

  • Stronger commercial, environmental and social outcomes.

 

Wide industry experience

With more than 20 years’ communications, marketing, change management and engagement experience across many industry sectors and organisations, and degrees in economics and law, I understand how different businesses and organisations work. I’ll get to know yours quickly.

 

 

Listening and co-design

I’m a good listener and I believe in co-design. So that’s where I’ll start – by listening and involving you and your team to design strategic, pragmatic solutions that work.

As an experienced facilitator, an adult education tutor and a published writer-editor, I’ll help you identify and focus on what matters.

Fast turn-around

Then, as an experienced consultant used to working in complex, fast-changing environments, I’ll turn your project round quickly.

 

 

Giving back’s important to me

I’m a long-term volunteer who’s currently a proud mentor to two awesome young women, through First Foundation and Auckland University’s Young Sustainability Leaders programme.

 

​​Outside work I’m happiest on my bike, in the garden or the bush, with my nose in a good book, or enjoying the company of my husband Tony, friends and Momo the cat.

​I'm based in Auckland, in Aotearoa New Zealand and work with clients around the country and in Australia. This being the 2020s I'm now a well-seasoned 'remote worker' and you're only ever a Zoom call away!
