Dorenda has always taken Design Thinking into new and challenging arenas, constantly exploring what it means to create values in the 21st century.

Her Career has led to engagements across a very diverse range of organisations including Education, Science, Technology, and Business.

Her message has always been about the challenge of designing products, services, and systems that meet the real needs of real people.

Dorenda believes that design, as it is most commonly practiced, misses the opportunity to build an authentic and defensible New Zealand brand.

She will engage us in a discussion about where those opportunities might lie. Dorenda has a long involvement with the New Zealand Hi-Tech Awards, is a committed mentor to the Start-Up community. As a founder of The Britten Institute, she runs critical thinking workshops and consults in the strategy space. Dorenda also bakes lots of cakes!
