I started attending the WeTest (now Ministry of Testing - Auckland) events in 2014, and started presenting about testing in 2016, and was a lead coordinator from March 2019 till May 2021. As a lead coordinator I helped to organise professional development events for the Auckland testing community. Keeping a monthly schedule of evening presentations, organising host venues, food & sponsors.

A particular passion of mine has been to ramp up instructor led hands-on technology workshops.

Group activity has dwindled over the years, but there's still the occasional meeting about once a year.
