I'm a digital campaigner, communicator, and a public and government relations practitioner.
Prior to founding Burns Strategic Communications, I was a senior communications advisor to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. I ran the New Zealand Labour Party's digital campaigns, engaging millions of New Zealanders online and building a formidable digital movement. I've also been involved with digital communications for campaigns in New Zealand and abroad, including Western Australia's state election, the UK Labour Party leadership elections, and New Zealand's Campaign for Marriage Equality, alongside working in more traditional communications contexts.
I love telling stories that deepen brand engagement. There's huge power in movement-building, and rallying your supporters or customers to a common cause – its application goes well beyond political parties and non-profits.
I can help your organisation develop a new way of engaging your supporters and customers, find a new and powerful way of telling your story, supercharge your digital strategy, develop your fundraising and, with my deep insight into New Zealand's politics, engage effectively with the current Government.
