About me

A trusted partner for your digital journey

I've worked in New Zealand's non-profit sector for nearly 20 years. I'm Auckland based but have helped organisations from Whangarei to Invercargill; working online as far as possible to reduce costs and build digital confidence.  I do NOT fix computers, write code or design websites. But I can show you how to get rid of all that paperwork and give you records to prove legal and contractual compliance.

My specialisation is practical, sustainable record keeping, information flow and compliance in for-purpose organisations who have complex needs but a limited budget. Technology allows you to do things differently. Hopefully more easily. But it can take a while to get your head around new methods and many an improvement project has failed because it's too hard to make changes when you're already under pressure.

That's why I work in small steps. Using a secure online database called "Airtable" I'll help you experiment with process automation. This powerful, secure software will cost you nothing to use.  First we'll automate one  "niggly" admin chore, then another. Building confidence and triggering ideas. You'll never try to manage processes by spreadsheet again!

"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."
