Founder and Principal - Hazel Jennings


Dale Jennings Associates was started in 2011 by Hazel Jennings to build digital capabilities in New Zealand in the belief that effective technology use has an essential part to play in improved outcomes. Today over 95% of our clients are nonprofits; located from Whangarei to Invercargill and across all 4 Charity Services reporting tiers.

Based in Auckland we work as a virtual organisation to reduce costs and encourage digital confidence in our clients.  We work with organisational leaders; helping them manage risks and maximise contribution to mission. Solving problems not fixing computers. We are professional and vendor independent; neither reselling technology products or accepting commission payments.

Hazel combines ICT industry, senior management, change management and governance experience with over ten years work in New Zealand's non-profit sector. Her governance roles include service with the  2020 Communication’s Trust,  The Institute of IT Professionals,  and  Generosity NZ. Hazel is a Chartered IT Professional, a chartered member of the Institute of Directors and a member of Netsafe. She speaks regularly at both non-profit and technology events.
