About me

A trusted partner for your digital journey

I am a Chartered Member of the Institute of Directors and a MSD capability mentor.  I’ve over eight years NZ charity governance experience including roles with the 2020 TrustThe Institute of IT Professionals, Generosity NZ and Kia Puāwai.    I've worked in the It sector for over thirty years and I'm a  a member of Netsafe.  Learnmore about me on LinkedIn.

In 2011 I started Dale Jennings Associates to help NZ non-profits develop their digital systems and skills.  This usually involves improving policies,  administrative processes and meet their compliance responsibilities.

From day one I’ve been vendor independent and take no commission payments. Today my clients are located from Whangarei to Invercargill and report in every Charity Services tier. Based in Auckland, I work online to reduce costs and grow digital confidence. I do NOT fix computers, write code or design websites. But I can show you how technology could further enable your mission.

Want to know how? Call me.

"Hazel is a personable, unassuming person who knows way more than you realise. She is a strategic thinker and has great networks. She (as every good IT person should) wants to fit the IT and work systems around how your workplace operates, rather than make you fit around the latest and shiniest IT toy. She thinks carefully, works with you and is up front about costs and wants to save you wasting money. I will always and without fail call on Hazel for IT systems."
