New Trustees Introduced

In March we welcomed four new trustees to Life Education Trust North Shore. We are so fortunate to have these passionate and talented individuals joining our board as we continue to support Harold the Giraffe's work on the Shore. We introduced two new trustees last month and now we introduce you to the other two, Julie Hazelhurst and Max Woodhead.

Julie has lived on the North Shore since arriving in New Zealand in 2000. Originally from South Africa, she is a mother of two older children, a qualified yoga teacher and Nutritional therapist, avid runner and exerciser, and a lover of great wine, food and travel.

Julie’s areas of expertise include a broad range of people, strategy and wellbeing services including a one-on-one executive coaching practice, leadership development and coaching programmes, strategic planning and operating model redesign, employee experience, disruptive workforces, embedding culture change and off-site residential and wellness programmes. Her key interest is in inspiring people to live their best lives and she has a keen focus on educating our youth to enable them to realise their full potential through learning key life skills and holistic wellbeing toolkits.

She is keen to give back to our community in any way that adds value. Julie said “I am super excited to be a part of this amazing team after seeing first-hand the positive impact Harold and the Life Education programme had on my children at critical stages in their early education and life development journey.”

Secondly, we welcome Max as a shadow board member. Max is a new addition to the North Shore, moving into the area with his family in December last year. He has two young children and he sees the Life Education vision and purpose as key enablers to helping his tamariki and their peers navigate through life. 

Max has 13 years experience in marketing and consulting across a range of industries, including a three-year stint in Sydney. We're excited to have Max’s social media and marketing skills on the board. 

You can follow us on social media and we will be providing news and updates through our Facebook and Instagram channels. We encourage you to follow our Life Education Trust - North Shore pages (@lifeeducation_northshore) to stay up to date with Harold and our Educators as they go about their work educating and inspiring our North Shore tamariki to make positive life choices.
