Communications Strategist

ComVoices is a network of national organisations in the tangata whenua, community and voluntary sector. I provide practical advice and tools to improve stakeholder engagement. My aim is to enable ComVoices to have a greater policy and public impact.

As well as strategic planning, I helped ComVoices apply my advice by organising a free half day seminar for government policy folk. I brought together a group of community researchers from around the motu to talk to around 50 government policy folk about:

  • the contribution of the community sector during the pandemic and
  • how the relationship between government and the community could learn from the lessons and precedents set over the last few years. 

It was a fantastic opportunity to learn from some amazing, dedicated, positive, and hugely knowledgeable people.
