In this conversation with Michelle Berriman we hear about her purpose driven work, her fascinating background and what has led her to New Zealand.  We also talk about a report that the Fundraising Institute of New Zealand have just released prepared over two years on giving, wills and bequests (downloadable here) called 'New Zealand's Willpower'.  

Her bio: Michelle has been causing disruption and transformational change in the NPF sector for over 25 years, Michelle is motivated by creating change and making a difference to those facing adversity and wants everyone to be given the chance to be the very best version of themselves.

Michelle is the currently the Executive Director of FINZ. Michelle has work in a variety of roles within the charity sector, prior to a move into fundraising and development she was a youth/community development worker supporting children looked after by the state, running community-based youth projects, and working in juvenile lock-down.

Michelle’s natural ability to forge long lasting and meaningful relationships has delivered positive results for the many organisations she has worked for. Michelle has a passion for events, conceptualising ideas, and bringing a new flavour to existing programmes within organisations.
