Leanne Holdsworth
Engagement and Development Manager

Leanne imagines a future where all New Zealanders are able to leave work fulfilled - growing with open hearts, feeling their differences are valued - and knowing their work experiences support them to be the best parents, partners and contributing members of society they can be.

In her own words, “I have been fortunate that I have been able to create my work from a place of ‘what difference do I want to make in the world next?’ And that has meant that I have had a very varied career, starting with being a chartered accountant, writing a leadership book, being a co-founder of Return to Sender (an eco-coffin making company), and a consultant for 12 years in sustainable development, culture and leadership.”

The theme of all of Leanne’s work experience is ‘making work more human’, and she brings this together with her pragmatism of business drivers and multi-stakeholder needs.
