Prime Strategies Group
Bay of Plenty, New Zealand
Telephone: +64 27 2270 866
Robyn has joined Prime Strategies after a long and varied career working in operational and general management roles in a number of industries. Robyn started her working career as a nurse and moved into leadership roles in both the public and private health sectors. She has managed a number of health care facilities, led one of New Zealand’s largest health sector auditing agencies and most recently was the GM of a multi-national nutritional and skin care company
Having worked her way through many levels of business and also through running her own small businesses, Robyn has the empathy, insight and experience needed to work well with diverse people and challenges.
Robyn’s particular strengths include:
- How to be a great leader
- Financial management
- Strategy development – knowing where you want to be and taking the most effective steps to get there
- Organisational culture – making sure people love what they do
- Stress management and conflict resolution
- Staff productivity and performance – Getting the best out of people while ensuring they have fun along the way
Robyn has a depth of knowledge and insight into what it takes for a small to medium business to be a success. Owning your own business can provide the greatest rewards but can also be a very lonely and frustrating experience. Trying to be “all things to all people’ is tough and it is easy to get bogged down in the day to day rather than focusing on the areas your business needs to flourish and grow. Robyn’s strength is in her ability to work beside business owners so that they can achieve improvement in both business performance as well as their work – life balance. Above all Robyn works hard to free business owners of the worry and stress associated with running a business and allow them to carve out space to enjoy more personal and financial freedom.
Robyn lives in Mount Maunganui with her husband Tim. They have four children who are either students or are pursuing their own careers in New Zealand and overseas. Robyn is completing her MBA and loves travel, food, wine and living at one of the best beaches in the world.
Robyn believes “My greatest buzz is not only to help improve business performance but to see people achieving the life they always dreamed they would have”.
