"“I am passionate about speaking, facilitating, stakeholder engagement, cultural competency, women’s empowerment and youth development”"

Communicating, facilitating and mana-enhancing

Daisy Lavea-Timo is passionate about speaking, facilitating, stakeholder engagement, coaching cultural confidence, women’s empowerment and youth development. 

She has almost 2 decades of teaching, mentoring and people-weaving experience across multiple worlds: education, youth work, government, businesses, NGO’s, community development and the Arts. A former associate Pacific Dean/ Teacher and Southern Regional Manager of the Ministry of Youth Development, Daisy is passionate about connecting talanoa across sectors in her mahi, especially anything that involves the worlds of rangatahi.

Crowned the 2017 NZ Poetry Slam Champion, Daisy’s poetry is the dynamic and indigenous response of her Sāmoanness as a NZ Born, fluent Sāmoan speaking and Malu wielding matai, and her work strives to communicate the complex societal issues connected with culture and leadership.
