Heather Hammond

Tēnā koe,

My journey began in the rural community of Whakatau, nestled on the beautiful Heretaunga Plains of Te Matau-a-Māui. I whakapapa to Ngāti Tūwharetoa.

I am the Project Manager for New Zealand’s national suicide prevention programmes, LifeKeepers and Mana Akiaki – LifeKeepers for Māori.

My professional background is in Project, Change and Operations Management, where I have developed a versatile skill set over the past 15 years. My approach is characterised by a relentless focus on customer satisfaction, coupled with a commitment to delivering high-quality outcomes that drive tangible results. As a leader of peak-performing teams, I have cultivated environments where innovation thrives, and transformative change takes root.

I excel in navigating the complexities of diverse industries, leveraging my strategic vision to conceptualise and execute initiatives from inception to completion. Adaptable and resilient, I thrive in environments where priorities evolve and challenges abound.

My work is grounded in integrity, empathy and a deep-seated commitment to fostering collaboration and inclusivity.

My university background is in Commerce, and I am a qualified PRINCE2 Practitioner.
