For nearly a decade, a huge part of my life has been devoted to a pro-bono endeavour of producing the community TEDx events here in the capital.
The decision to cancel this years event really hurt—read the full announcement here—as the 2021 event was going to be my last and boy I was aiming to go out on a high (with a 2,000 person event plus some wicked delegate experience ideas to boot as well).
- two TEDxTeAros (2012, 2013)
- one TEDxScottBase streaming party
- TEDxWellingtonWomens (2015 – license holder only, 2017 – license holder & producer)
- four TEDxWellingtons (2014, 2016, 2017, 2019)
- twelve evening community TEDxWellingtonSalon events
- plus, mentoring eight other TEDx’s in the nation
…my time as the kaitiaki of the capital city license has ended.
SO, WHAT’S NEXT?
Then explore new paid opportunities which align to my skill set and serves my individual purpose regarding enabling people to find and have voice through delicious learning experiences.
Am looking to work with kind humans who reach beyond their grasp and have complex problems to solve—I like intersecting disciplines, leading on collaborations and crafting outcome-based connections through content creation.
Big words for basically saying making cool and complicated stuff with nice people!
As way of an illustration, I recently developed and delivered an in-studio learning experience for Teulo which is an online platform for architects and designers.
Let me know if you are in need of a DK-shaped human to assist in any creative project directing / producing.
And I will continue to offer and deliver speaker coaching (one-to-ones and group masterclasses) for select clients as well as developing out the fourth Creative Leadership NZ 2021 conference for the end of the year.
