A huge congratulations to one of our valued members and Kea New Zealand’s UK and Europe Regional Director, Tania Bearsley, who was awarded UK New Zealander of the Year.
The award, presented by the New Zealand Society of the United Kingdom at the recent Waitangi Day Ball in London, celebrates Kiwis living and working in the UK who are doing great things for the NZ community.
Bronwen Horton, New Zealand Business Women's Network Founder, said: "We are absolutely over the moon that Tania has won this prestigious award. It's recognition of her contribution to the NZ community over the last 10 years, not only in her current role, but in everything she has done. Tania is an active member and avid supporter and ambassador of NZBWN, taking every opportunity to introduce new women and businesses to our network."
In 2019, Tania was instrumental in organising the Stand for Solidarity with New Zealand event at Trafalgar Square, bringing together the Kiwi community following the Christchurch Mosque attacks.
But her honour roll is a lot longer than that. She has given endless time and energy to our network as a volunteer, as well as the New Zealand Society (UK) and of course Kea New Zealand.
