Meet The Team
Megan is a whirlwind of energy and enthusiasm with more than 16 year’s experience in facilitation, as well as developing, designing and delivering training programmes. She has worked with people in corporate, government and non-profit organisations all over the world, and her passion is working with people who make a real difference in their communities.
An intense curiosity of how people have ideas and how they take them from idea to action, fuels Megan’s special interest in the fields of creativity, innovation, collaborative teamwork and leadership. She is particularly skilled at facilitating problem solving or planning discussions, and knows how to cut through the ‘yeah buts’ that often stop an organisation from moving forward.
In addition to sailing this ship, Megan volunteers with her local branch of Bellyful New Zealand. This on-the-ground volunteering means she knows first-hand the challenges faced by small organisations.
All Things Administration
Gillian is the new kid on the block who joined our team earlier this year.
Gillian’s responsible for all things admin, helping to keep the balls in the air and the wheels in motion. You’ll speak with Gillian when you ring our office and one of the best parts of her role is hearing about the huge impact and positive change you’re making within your community.
Gillian’s most recent role at social enterprise PressGo, combined her commercial expertise with her passion for helping people with their mental wellbeing and resilience. She also has a seat on the board of a community-based organisation supporting people with long-term mental health conditions or disabilities.
Outside of work, Gillian’s two active boys and outdoorsy husband keep her busy and as a family they love heading to the beach and out on the boat whenever they can.
Carole has worked in the community sector for over 30 years and has an excellent understanding of what makes a good organisation, great. Through various roles in local government, Carole has worked alongside countless organisations providing support from planning to funding, research to dispute resolution, and everything in-between. She is also a long-time volunteer and trustee, and has been actively involved with organisations such as Neighbourhood Support, Council of Social Services, Age Concern and the Youth Arts Trust. She is passionate about supporting groups to reach their potential and has a long list of expertise to share.
Lisa has enjoyed art from the first time she picked up a pencil. She excelled in the arts throughout high school and went on to design for a local publishing company. When she became a Mum, she started her own business as a freelance designer, and from there she took on Tonic Magazine. She has enjoyed being Exult’s Graphic Designer for over 30 issues!
As a parent, Lisa volunteers with her children’s school, helping to support their annual Mower Day Fundraiser. She also supports her daughters with their charity based endeavours through the school. Lisa’s love of animals and nature inspired her to live rurally where she tends to chickens, a vegetable garden and enjoys the use of local native bush and rivers.
