Nan Wehipeihana, Kate McKegg, Judy Oakden and Julian King have been working together as the Kinnect Group since 2007. The hallmark of the Kinnect Group is that we offer critical insight and flexible, responsive services. We connect leaders and managers to world-class knowledge and insight to help them:
- Think critically about the quality and value of what they do
- Make good decisions about programmes, policies and services
- Facilitate continuous learning leading to change that makes a positive difference
- Ensure organisations get the best value out of their evaluation, research and performance measurement investment.
Our business model is built on long standing collaborative relationships. We work with an extensive network of Associates – all successful small business owners and professionals in their own right – and build project teams with the right skill sets and sector experience for each assignment. This approach enables us to be flexible and responsive to our clients’ needs.
The Kinnect Group has robust systems which ensure quality delivery – including rigorous peer review and risk management processes. The Group also invests in professional development to ensure we remain at the leading edge of evaluation practice globally. We are regular contributors at evaluation and policy conferences in New Zealand, Australia, the United States and further afield.
