I’m a marketing professional and fiction writer, and I became active in the Green Party as a result of my volunteer work with the Waitakere Ranges Protection Society.
A Brit originally, and proud of my Yorkshire roots, I’ve lived in West Auckland for 15 years now, since immigrating to Aotearoa at the start of 1996 with my partner Tony Dunn. I feel privileged to be a NZ citizen and acknowledge Te Tiriti o Waitangi in making this possible.
I run a freelance marketing business, GoodSense, supporting kiwi businesses and I’m a member of the Sustainable Business Network. I’ve been an elected member of the executive team of the Waitakere Ranges Protection Society since 2001. I’ve been a member of the Green Party since 2002 and have been involved in planning the Party's campaigns for 2008 and 2011.
Areas of interest and capabilities:
I'm fascinated by how marketing can be a force for sustainable behaviour rather than excess consumption. As well as working with sustainable business clients I run a 1 day course on Marketing for Sustainable Business at the University of Auckland.
I have 20 years professional marketing experience and run marketing consultancy GoodSense, providing freelance marketing expertise to organisations working for social good and to sustainable businesses. I'm interested in stimulating debate in the advertising and marketing world about green marketing and greenwash.
I teach a 1-day course in Marketing for Sustainable Business at the University of Auckland and convene the LinkedIn Group Green Marketing & Advertising NZ which has over 50 members.
As well as local conservation and landscape protection issues, I’ve been active in the campaign to improve transport choices in West Auckland, to make local government more democratic and to reduce the plastic bags used in Waitakere City.
Nice to see you on Waitangi day, what a beautiful one. Here is what I was referring to, came across it again on the newsletter from NZBCSD while I was following up on your advice no less!:
Commerce Commission warns Hyundai on advertising claims

The warning relates to claims made about results from the 2007 World Solar Challenge used for an advertising campaign that ran on billboards and on television during July and August 2008.
