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 am an experienced facilitator, and can design bespoke learning solutions for your organisation; whether you need a team retreat or a focused workshop. I also offer consulting services, specialising in the social enterprise sector.

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 companies, charities, and social enterprises including Seven Electrical, Inspiring Stories Trust, the PopUp Business School Aotearoa and PledgeMe.

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. Feel free to connect with me for an exploratory chat.

Courses and workshops

If you are seeking a bespoke learning experience for your company, connect with me to discuss your needs. I specialise in team retreats, confidence-building and culture curation. I can deliver both classroom-based and indoor/outdoor workshops.  


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.
