I am Richard Westney, an experienced and passionate HR professional working as an independent contractor/consultant. With nearly 25 years experience in HR and management I have worked across many industries and sectors in both New Zealand and the UK. If you need help with an HR or change project, or a temporary HR resource then let’s talk.
Based in Wellington, New Zealand I also blog about all things HR.
I am also big on collaboration. In 2017, with some like-minded practitioners I co-founded the Summer of Biz. In 2015 I established and continue to run the Wellington HR Meetup group. I am an active mentor and also sit on the HR Advisory Panel of the Association of People Professionals which I helped to set up.
