...a great LITTLE idea is just as good as a great BIG one - Let me help you explore that one flash of inspiration, and see where it might take you.
...without planning, a goal, and accountability, an idea will always remain "just an idea''
...everyone needs encouragement, support and the occasional gentle push to make change.
...when you have defined a VISION, a PURPOSE and some done some 'blue sky thinking' anything is possible
...if you're prepared to make an investment, you can expect to get a great return.
Let me help you...grow your potential!
As CEO of Orchestras Central, I'm all about delivering amazing experiences to our community.
I have also been CEO of the Te Awamutu Chamber of Commerce and have a background in business development, strategy and change.
I facilitate strategy workshops for the For Purpose Sector as I understand the unique challenges and opportunities that these organisations face, often with limited resources - whether, funds, people and time, and love helping others create meaningful, achievable goals that can form legacies for good!
I was in the first cohort for CELF and found the experience not just the usual ‘challenging and rewarding’ but also an absolute treasure trove of learning (which I use every day in my new role) and made some amazing connections too. I'm now on the CELF Board of Trustees.
I have a long involvement with startup businesses running 'Be Your Own Boss' and for 13 years have worked with MSD evaluating business plans for new start-ups. I’m passionate about making social enterprises stronger and more resilient, and helping people with great little ideas get started on the road of entrepreneurship.
I chair Pirongia Tourism, manage a clutch of social media sites, an media spokesperson for TRON, and in my spare time enjoy blogging, spending time with friends and family , and discovering great food and coffee around NZ
I describe myself as a 'connector of people' and believe I bring passion, integrity and energy to the organisations I work with.
