Peter Conley, CEO, ANZCO Foods Limited

Heather is an exceptional HR professional with a wealth of knowledge and experience.

I engaged Heather to assess an employee experience platform’s suitability to support the rollout of a new performance development framework.    We got precisely the level of know-how and rigour needed to understand the requirements for success and what makes the most sense given the current circumstances.  Heather is personable, easy to work with and brings integrity and intelligence to her work.   It was a real pleasure to work with her.

Adriana Botha, General Manager People, Culture and Safety, Scion

I worked with Heather when I was the CEO of NZ Kiwifruit Growers.  Heather’s previous role was General Manager Human Resources at EastPack, she was a key contributor to the development of labour policy for the Kiwifruit industry. 

Heather then worked as a consultant for NZKGI during the changeover to a new CEO. Heather’s in-depth knowledge of both the meat and kiwifruit sectors was particularly useful when considering labour constraints and possible solutions.  Heather’s experience with the RSE scheme both from a policy and operational perspective has been critical to representing NZKGI views.  Heather has been extremely flexible in responding to changing workloads and needs.  Her valuable input ranges seamlessly from operational to strategic as required.  I would happily recommend Heather to anyone looking for HR advice and input on strategy.
