Ngozi Penson - Kaipatiki Newcomers Network

Hi,

My name is Ngozi and I am the coordinator for the Kaipatiki Newcomers Network.

I have lived in New Zealand for many years and love connecting with people.  I love the diversity and the opportunity to meet so many people and share in their cultures to learn a thing or two. I grew up in Nigeria and have lived in UK, UAE and Australia.

I feel that connecting with others is a key part to settling and embracing change and I am a huge advocate for community engagement through social connectedness.

Kaipatiki is a welcoming, vibrant and diverse community and the area comprises suburbs of Beach Haven, Birkenhead, Chatswood, Birkdale, Northcote Peninsula, Glenfield, Hillcrest and Marlborough.

There are so many things to do such as bush walks in the reserves and walkways, town centres for shopping and dinning, crafts markets and events.

My background includes starting and owning various businesses in the past, singing, volunteering and working for non-for profit.

Having lived in various places I understand the challenges of settling and making new friends, hence my desire to help people connect.

I am a trained professional business and personal development coach working with individuals and small business owners. I facilitate free workshops through community non-for profit groups to help people make better choices in life and at work.

I invite newcomers, locals and others that would like to connect and engage more with our community to join Kaipatiki Newcomers Network.  I look forward to connecting with you.
