Cheryl is a leadership futurist and curator of leadership ideas. She follows leadership trends and research and translates these into practice, working internationally and virtually with organisations, business leaders and educators. Her passion is for challenging organisations to think differently in order to adapt to a changing future – to think beyond their current leadership realities, while still using the best of the past. Her current focuses include agile, hybrid leadership in complex times; environmental scanning; and creating scenarios of the future.
Cheryl has been a highly successful school principal, leading both Richmond and Fendalton Schools to achieve national recognition for their standards of excellence in education, including being awarded Goodman Fielder School of the Year. Cheryl has also received a number of prestigious awards for leadership in education, including the Beeby Fellowship and the Woolf Fisher Fellowship.
Cheryl has served in a number of governance roles, both locally and nationally, including the NZ Institute of Management, the Food for Thought Trust, Core Education Ltd, and a number of establishment boards for new schools. She is currently a Board Chair of the NZ Brain Research Institute, Deputy Chair of the Establishment Board for Haeata Community Campus, and is a member of the NZ Institute of Directors. She is a full member of the Association of Professional Futurists and the World Future Society.
2017 projects include the curation of a book on Collaboration and a strategic role in Grow Waitaha, a Ministry of Education initiative to support educational change in Christchurch.
