Dorenda spoke at our Cashmere Rotary Club in May 2023 about her work, life and passion – fighting for better design outcomes for New Zealand. 

Dorenda’s presentation was far-reaching, fascinating, and based on her personal experiences, including various employment in Australia, Papa New Guinea and working with Vitra, a major design organisation in Europe. She supported her late brother John’s successful international racing bids, and they had plans to work together on entirely new projects. 

Dorenda presented in her trademark passionate manner which highlighted to all her genuine commitment to her design principle framework that underscores all she teaches and consults to, around New Zealand.
