Lynne Trenwith combines lecturing in the Department of Communication Studies at UNITEC (Comms 6532 Interpersonal Communication & Comms 7537 Media and Government Communication) with work in the profit and not for profit sector. 

In the work of leadership, management and governance I work in areas of internal and external communication, strategic staff selection, change management, advising and mentoring on problem solving in strategy, professional development, management and HR issues. This is combined with ten years of governance experience on Boards, four of those as Chair.

My passion for sharing knowledge, a strong 'can do' attitude and a belief in creating an environment that enables people to achieve their potential is combined with a passion for writing, research, publication, conference presenting focused in the field of Communication. Specific interests in the Communication field are in organizational and inter-cultural communication; the current research project is the history of Public Relations and PRINZ in New Zealand. I am a member of PRINZ, HRINZ, IPANZ, TCANZ.
