Facilitator, Strategist, Coach
Anna Watson



I care about people; how we find our place in the world, and how we make the best of it when we get there.

My experience spans facilitation, coaching, programme design and strategy.  My unique career journey has given me insight into the challenges faced by ‘career changers’ seeking meaningful work. I design learning experiences for people and organisations who want to show up with empathy and purpose. 

I offer 1:1 coaching, specialising in career changers, driven professionals and entrepreneurs. I am an experienced facilitator, and can design bespoke learning solutions for your organisation; whether you need a team retreat or a focused workshop.

Previously, I practised corporate law at Bell Gully, one of New Zealand’s top tier law firms. I moved on from law to be a hiking guide in the depths of the South Island. From there, I started working with charities, start-ups and social enterprises including Inspiring Stories Trust, the PopUp Business School Aotearoa and PledgeMe.

1:1 Coaching

Work with me 1:1 to identify and attain your goals, progress towards value-aligned work and tap into your most authentic self. For Wellington-based clients, I offer outdoors-based coaching. There is something about getting outside and away from the desk that allows us to more deeply connect with ourselves.

Get in touch to learn more about my three session coaching package and book in your free 30 minute consultation.

Facilitation and training

Need a facilitator for your next event? I have a broad range of experience in facilitating events and programmes on behalf of organisations.

From intimate workshops to weekend hackathons to a room of 200 people, I can create a safe space, gauge energy and inspire enthusiasm to provide the learning experience your organisation seeks.

Courses and workshops

If you are seeking a bespoke learning experience, connect with me to discuss your needs. I specialise in team retreats, confidence-building and culture curation.

I also run workshops for individuals. An important part of my practice is connection, so I only offer in-person learning experiences. See what's coming up in Wellington


Together, we are stronger. If you have an idea or project where my skills might fill a gap, I'm always open to a conversation.
