Creative Welly Episode #21 | Shadoe Stone & Troy Hammond

Courageous conversations with bold humans (from the most creative little capital in the world).

Shadoe Stone, Creative Director + Storyteller, five and dime.

Shadoe is interested in stories. The ones that shape us, the ones that defy us, and the ones that tickle us. She runs a storytelling agency, five and dime, on a mission to reshape our beloved narratives into ones that are more inclusive, regenerative and consider what it means to be fully human. Warts and all.

Having started her career in design, then studying and working in marketing and comms, and now channeling her energy into narrative co-design and production, Shadoe is happiest when listening to others, and leaning into the discomfort so that she may grow and learn to be a better ally for positive outcomes – for our tangata and our taiao.

Troy Hammond, Founder of Talent Army, Cultivate, Mission Control & SalaryData.

Troy is not a thought leader or Ted Speaker. He is just a regular idiot trying his best and failing as much as he is succeeding.

He is a serial entrepreneur and most known as the Founder & CEO of Talent Army who are New Zealand’s premier and fastest growing IT recruitment company.

Having now successfully taken on the broken recruitment industry, Troy is spending more time focusing on other areas that he can help the tech ecosystem with People & Culture consulting, applications and remuneration software.
