Event Details

We know story telling is a critical aspect for our organisations, yet how do we put this into practice?

Thanks to our friends at Weave - Working Together More Fund, Seed Waikato is able to host a series of two workshops. This - the first in a two part series - will allow participants to gain practical guidance and insights in telling our stories.

As you learn and practice this skill, you will reflect deeply on your own motivations and values that have informed your choices as a leader in the mahi you do. Learn to tell a story about yourself (story of self), the community you are working with (story of us) and the action required to create the change you seek (story of now).

We understand many organisations will be wanting to pay via Invoice, please select the payment option 'Bank Transfer' if you are wanting to do so.

At Seed Waikato we try to make all of our events as accessible and affordable as possible, if the cost of this event is a barrier please email kiaora@seedwaikato.nz

    Born and raised in South Auckland and currently living in Northland, Alex is a leader and collaborator, ambitious about creating transformational change in and through people. She’s invested her time in work that contributes to advancing equitable outcomes for Māori, Pacific and marginalised communities in health and education.

    A career highlight was leading an award-winning community organising campaign to improve Polynesian youth mental health and wellbeing in South Auckland where she trained and worked as lead organiser at Ko Awatea, centre for health innovation and system Improvement. Alex has presented and led community organising training in the UK, USA, Australia and Aotearoa and intrinsically operates within the principles of Te Tiriti O Waitangi to acknowledge, protect and enhance mana Māori and self-determined wellbeing. While whānau Māori and Pacific are close to Alex’s heart, she is a firm believer that all disenfranchised communities can and must be supported to lead their own solutions to historic, social and health inequities
