a kiwi who makes things happen and gets things done

Whilst originally from the UK I have lived most of my life in New Zealand.  Being 3,000 km from the next major land mass Kiwi's are adaptable, ingenious and hard working, we just do it and get things done.

I have worked  in all sectors; SME, Corporate, Public, Sports and Recreation, NFP - membership/ charities, and run my own boutique events and marketing agency.  Along the way successfully creating and delivering a broad range of projects, including integrated marketing and communications, digital, events, social marketing, corporate partnerships, fundraising and campaigns

I thrive on creating and executing marketing, fundraising and events strategy that make a positive difference. Taking projects through all stages from ideas and strategy to implementation, to produce measurable results that have had a positive impact.

  • Public sector organisations to create change

When not at my laptop or enjoying a flat white I am generally outdoors on my mountain bike, under the water on a coral reef or meeting new people in distant lands.
