Courageous conversations with bold humans (from the most creative little capital in the world).
Vida Christeller, Manager City Design, Wellington City Council
Vida leads the City Design team at Wellington City Council, a team focused on influencing and delivering people-centric spaces which build on the best of Wellington and transforms the City to be fit for the future. Her focus is on ensuring that Councils Strategy and Policy is implemented and the city becomes more sustainable in the whole holistic sense of the word – that densification is done well through empowering Wellingtonians of all ages and abilities to get around safely on foot and by bike, urban greening, public space upgrades and place-based regeneration. Wellington City Council is turning strategy into action and are beginning a decade of transformative change.
Digby Scott, Mentor, guide, and catalyst for leaders and change-makers
I’m a trusted mentor, guide and catalyst for leaders and change-makers. I’m deeply interested in how in this age of flux and uncertainty, we can better design our lives, our organisations and our societies to enable people to live well, purposefully and sustainably. I reckon this stuff matters more than ever now.
With 25+ years in the people game, my expertise is all about cutting through to get to what matters, and bringing energy and fresh thinking to get people unstuck and moving forward.
Originally from Western Australia, I’ve made Wellington my home. I love this place for its creativity, how nature is right there in your face, and the diversity of people that hang out here.
