PortfolioEnd-to-end workshop development, digital and print design, facilitation and evaluation
Digital design and development
Design and technology are a part of me and infuse everything I do. I've taught myself so many new programmes, systems and code over the years and I love diving into new platforms. I founded New Media Design, a website design and branding company in 2002 and have been creating logos, print material and websites ever since.
Programme Design and Facilitation
Content development, programming and facilitation for the Boma New Zealand Education Fellows. A year-long fellowship for Canterbury Educators. I was fortunate to lead the San Francisco tour to IDEO, Stanford d.school, GoogleX, High Tech High and the June Jordan School for Equity in 2019 and lead delivery of this programme for three years in total.
Recipe Book and Superfood Bar
While getting certified as a health and nutrition coach, I wrote and designed a recipe book "Come Alive". You can read it for free here.
I then created a raw, superfood bar, designed the branding, packaging and website and sold them in organic stores and yoga studio nationwide.
"This workshop was the perfect introduction as Kit patiently covered all aspects of non-binary life in Aotearoa. With positivity and insight, Kit shared their life experience while acknowledging the experience within our management team. What Kit provided us with is a window into this world and the opportunity to become allies as part of our work at the CAB. Following on from this workshop my own eyes have been opened. I have shared the written material with all volunteers and spoken with them about the workshop. At least two volunteers have printed the material to share with their families; hoping for example, to provide support for close family who are puzzled by what they are experiencing. In addition, I have observed the binary nature of support offered and am in a position to kindly point out the potential for the inclusion of our nonbinary community here. It is a great privilege to have learned from Kit. To use pronouns correctly, to provide clients with all options for their demographic record and to manaaki all clients with respect for their identity."
I've had the privilege of watching Kit work for some years, and working with them directly more recently. Kit is skilled, energetic, compassionate and highly professional. As a facilitator, Kit is inclusive and enthusiastic; as a programme designer, thoughtful and outcomes-focused. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Kit for any facilitation or coaching work - you'll be lucky to work with them!
You were fabulous Kit! You kept us all so engaged... never a dull moment. So glad you’re doing it again. Definitely planning to be there next time.
An awesome and inspiring day. You were a fantastic MC - so calm and kept the day running on time with a personal vibe.
Everyone thought you were a fantastic MC Kit. We all enjoyed the way you kept everyone in focus and made the day flow really smoothly. You bought the whole day together!
