We use our background working in advocacy and campaigns to support not-for-profit organisations, government and select companies. Recent examples of our work have included:
Creating a learning community for organisational leaders
Emily has been working with Greenpeace International to nurture a community of programme directors to encourage more cross-organisational sharing, learning and peer-to-peer support. This has involved designing the community of practice, building strong relationships with senior staff plus devising and moderating workshops in a virtual space.
Scoping potential pathways for ICT careers
Emily led research with Auckland Council and the Tindall Foundation to scope potential mechanisms to encourage more Auckland school students into careers in Auckland’s growing technology sector. The project involved interviews with stakeholders including corporate and school leaders as well as students. The recommendations of the scoping study were largely taken up and Auckland Council has progressed the project alongside industry body NZ Tech.
Evaluation of an experimental Greenpeace action
At the Good Campaigner, we are passionate about making evaluations useful tools that people can learn from – not just impenetrable reports. For Greenpeace New Zealand, Emily evaluated a mass civil disobedience – a tactic which had been new and challenging for the organisation. Emily led an evaluation process and produced a number of different resources, so that lessons-learned from the project could be shared widely across the organisation and beyond. These were extremely well-received, particularly within Greenpeace.
