Janet Digby is an experienced Auckland-based project manager with skills in research and facilitation.

During the last 20+ years, Janet has worked on projects with many organisations including major trading banks, government organisations, non-profits, construction and telecommunications companies.

Clients enjoy the experience Janet brings to her roles, without the significant overheads of a larger company, putting these services within the reach of many organisations.

After completing her degree in Management Studies and Labour Relations in 1994 at The University of Auckland, Janet worked on many projects within the fields of management consulting and market research (through roles with Colmar Brunton, Win Win Group and R Cubed, now TNS Conversa).

Janet formed Levare Limited in 1997, and has since been involved in a wide range of mahi as project manager - from research reviews, policy analysis and advice, to child health advocacy. A significant portion of her current work is with non-profit organisations.

She has had the opportunity to work with staff on all levels, from CEOs and Boards to Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and ‘shop floor’ staff members– often this work involves building consensus and the synthesis of information on a specific topic.

Janet loves data and working with people who are experts in their field. Her work with stakeholders is based on the principle of transparency and the importance of evidence and relies on strong relationships.

For the last 15 years, Janet has been a guest lecturer at Auckland University, currently delivering an annual lecture to Masters of Audiology students on "The Economics of Hearing Loss".

Janet got her head around a complex task very quickly, and produced a cogent and convincing report that not only gave us a clear direction, but also assured us that we had been right to choose her. Her high quality analysis, relationship and communication skills, and passion to contribute to positive social causes were all evident...
