Augusta Grayson

Consultant in Auckland, New Zealand

I am a freelance Digital and Communications Strategist based in Auckland, New Zealand. I have a passion for uncovering the human opportunity that lies at the heart of business and brand challenges, then finding the best possible touchpoints to nurture that opportunity.

My approach to strategy is driven by my desire to understand all the ways people communicate and interact with one another. I have a passion for digital platforms and technology, as well as being connected with a wide range of people who teach me something new every day. I believe that you learn a lot more about people by being part of as many real, different experiences as you can and seeing the influence that comes from those interactions.

This year I have decided to branch out into some new experiences as well. As an extension of my passion for connecting with people, I have recently been appointed as an Independent Marriage Celebrant in Auckland. It is a role I will relish as it allows me to meet a huge variety of people and be part of one of the most important experiences in their lives. I look forward to being able to use my skills, experience and unique perspective to create a memorable, enjoyable day for couples from all walks of life.

I also competed in the World Masters Games in Auckland in April 2017. I was throwing discus and shot put which I haven't competed in since High School. It was (and continues to be) a fantastic personal challenge and I was lucky enough to take home a bronze media in Shot Put!

I consider myself a bit of a mosaic of identities... Digital enthusiast, Marriage Celebrant, Amateur Athlete... Fitness-crazy-death-metal-loving-pescetarian. There's never a dull day.
