I believe business has a huge opportunity and responsibility to lead this important mahi. I have been fortunate to work with many leading organisations such as Kowtow, Matteau, Project Just, Mindful Fashion New Zealand, Moana New Zealand, Bally and Content, on projects as diverse as strategic planning, sustainable procurement, circular design and measuring carbon footprints.
At my core I am a problem solver and creative thinker and I use my innate curiosity and determination to make positive change happen. It's my mission to help businesses move towards a regenerative future, through the power of community, integrity and imagination.
