It’s hard to imagine a more productive series of strategic planning sessions. Anna did a lot of background work to ensure that our time together was efficient and spent working through the crux of the issues rather than catch up. Anna was adept at reading the room and adjusting the pacing and content to keep things on track. We will definitely be using her services again.
Jordana Whyte, Cosy Homes 

In this insanely busy space, we call “community development,” Anna Parker is a reassuring centre of calm and peace. I can always rely on Her for a moment or two – way more if we’re lucky - of sane clear thinking which is firmly Earthed in Her wise and true Heart for the People. Mālō fa’afetai Anna!

Marie Laufiso, Dunedin City Councillor

Te Mana Ahua Ake Trust began the task of consolidating skills and experience in order to develop our future structure. Anna was insightful as she gathered the relevant information and options. Her calm nature with clear communication kept the momentum of change moving forward. Her knowledge of business models with community purpose makes her ideal for a diverse range of industries. In a nutshell – Anna can unpack some very complex brains and focus them towards a common purpose.

Angelina Kiore on behalf of Te Mana Ahua Ake Trust (event hosts of Otago Polyfest)  

I have been privileged to enjoy Anna’s wise insights and skilled facilitation in a range of situations where she has helped diverse groups get clear on their vision and how to take that into meaningful action. Anna lives her commitment to Te Tiriti based practice and community-led development with real integrity and a depth of professional expertise that is a real asset for those she works with.
