Wendy has extensive experience successfully managing people – teams of up to 16 and at one time a site of almost 70 staff.

Moving from leading to the training industry with People Power, back in 2002,  Wendy began assessing selected NZQA qualifications and creating user friendly learning modules. When this company was sold in 2010 Wendy set up her own business.

Wendy works with clients to develop cohesive and successful leadership and teams, offering a range of approaches to best suit each client; which is often either 1 one 1 Coaching, participative workshops, consulting and/or  NZQA qualification achievement.

Her style is real and hands on – because she has lead teams herself – experiencing huge wins and learning from her mistakes. She is approachable and practical and feedback from clients is always the same – saying that she enables people to relax, open up and have fun so their learning and self-discovery optimised. They walk away with skills and confidence to immediately apply their learning – it’s never just about the theory.
