Jenny has spent decades working in Philanthropy in New Zealand. In this interview we hear about her childhood and some of the influences that shaped her, becoming a teacher, travelling overseas and what she learned in India, the work she did with organisations involved in Philanthropy including working with Sir Roy Mckenzie on setting up his personal foundation, being involved in the creation of Philanthropy New Zealand and leading the largest New Zealand community trust, Foundation North, from 2004 for 15 years.  Throw in also leading Fulbright New Zealand (awarding academic scholarships) and being a trustee of other groups like the Vodafone Foundation and you'll see we touch on many topics.  We also focus in on discussing what she has learned about developing effective strategy, what listening to communities really looks like, the role of philanthropy and what works and doesn't work.  I really enjoyed this wide ranging conversation with Jenny and know you will as well.
