I love the chance to work with a client and have the privilege of being part of their growth story, whether a larger business that’s working hard to innovate or a smaller one with big ambitions.

Heather is an experienced senior manager who has led bids for large infrastructure projects in New Zealand and Australia.
Bringing enormous energy to client projects, Heather is passionate about bringing people together to build the strongest case to win work and grow the business and workforce.
Heather has worked as submission manager on mega-bids which can be in excess of 5000 pages, such as those for highly complex, high-risk Private-Public Partnerships and most of the country’s major infrastructure procured over the last decade. These roles involve detailed project management: diplomatic but efficient coordination across large organisations from areas such as engineering, construction, road maintenance, facilities management, health, social services, and finance.
Heather began her career in marketing and communications in South Africa after she completed her degree in law and international relations. She worked on major campaigns for global brands and developed a strong skill set in design, production, and project management which continues to influence her ability to channel and execute in the bid space today. In South Africa, Heather also had roles in the mining and water sectors working in internal communications and marketing.
