Shiona is excited to be part of the Dale Carnegie Franchise future as all roads have led to this point in her life.  After a recent relocation to Napier with her husband from Auckland in late 2019 which had been their home base for 20 plus years following a stint in the Middle East, the goal was to purchase a business that they were passionate about here in Hawkes Bay.

Shiona’s background includes 18 years in commercial real estate agency in Auckland and Dubai, account and sales management in the print and design industry here and in Auckland with an earlier career in administration and office management. The extensive knowledge and experience gained during this time combined with the recent completion of a National Diploma in Real Estate provide a solid business base.

A more recent Anakiwa Outward Bound experience in 2020 led to the desire to work in an industry with a focus on human development within the business world, the passion has always been about the people and service offered in the previous sales roles.

Her sales career had started in Napier in the print industry, so she is excited to return to a familiar business environment that has grown extensively with challenging new opportunities across all sectors.
