SIGNAL has new team mates!

Tuesday August 6, 2019

Lauren Saker (left) joins the team as a graphic design and marketing professional with over sixteen years experience across a range of industries, including education, design and creative tech, and the GLAM sector.  With diverse strengths in digital marketing, design and communications, Lauren most recently coordinated Techweek19 in Dunedin, featuring over 45 events across seven days in May.  Prior to that Lauren was the Campaign Manager for Wellington ICT Graduate School. 

Lauren will be taking over the reins on SIGNAL's marketing, advertising and communications activities,  promoting SIGNAL's programmes and events, and sharing our inspiring success stories to New Zealand ...and the world!

When she's not at work, Lauren is an outgoing mum of two, with a love of music, creative arts, camping and the Great Outdoors.

Leisa Browne (right) joins the SIGNAL team part-time as Operations and Engagement Coordinator. 

A landscape designer by profession, Leisa enjoys working with people of all walks of life, from hosting exchange students in her own home, to consulting with clients in her own business, or advising other business owners and managers on effective media campaigns.     

"This part-time role with SIGNAL allows me to continue with my landscape design business Leaf Landscape Design, and also to be part of the future.  It is great to see so much happening in the  Dunedin tech sector and I am looking forward to being part of it. " 

Leisa enjoys spending time with her two grownup sons, walking her fur-babies and working in her own (or someone else's) garden. 

You can contact Leisa via email at: leisa@signal.ac.nz
