Who We Are
Robyn’s interests focus on people, productivity, and performance. Her career path began in education and moved into the corporate world. After a decade in a senior executive role she became a consultant. She’s worked with a wide range of organisations in New Zealand, Australia, and also Singapore in fields as varied as insurance, education, engineering and construction, forensic science, health and government services. She’s passionate about building resilience – helping people bring their best selves to every day.
Robyn’s formal qualifications include MBA from Massey University, a BA and Post Graduate studies in social sciences from Otago University, and a Diploma in Teaching (NZ Ministry of Ed). She is a Fellow of Institute of Management New Zealand and has professional accreditations with the Australian Human Resources Institute and the Professional Speakers Association.
Besides getting a buzz from working with people, and dabbling in photography, Robyn finds fun in keeping fit with CrossFit, Zumba and cycling – and in uncovering the treasures of Western Australia where she now (mostly) lives.
Rigel joined the Davidson Kemp Consultancy after ten years in the police force and university study.
His working environments have seen him on the beat in some of the tougher parts of town, in the courts as the justice system did its work and minding the home security of the prime minister. Needless to say, he’s worked with a very diverse range of people and situations.
After gaining a Grad Dip in Conflict Resolution and accreditation as a professional LEADR mediator, he took on a new challenge and currently applies his insights, expertise and skills in a Ministry of Social Development project that trains and then launches beneficiaries into careers as entrepreneurs. Supporting successful start-ups is a highly-rewarding project.
Rigel’s passion for music has seen him tour with his band through Europe, the USA, parts of Asia as well as New Zealand and Australia, and enjoying a different sort of beat in a different world.
He is based in Auckland, New Zealand.
