teresa ourstoriesTeresa’s passion for balancing high performance with quality of life was the inspiration behind launching her business, TM&Co Ltd. Through TM&Co, Teresa has coached individuals and teams within SMEs and high profile organisations.

In 2015, Teresa partnered with us to share some of that passion with NZBWN’s ‘Clarity Around Your Career Change’ mentoring group. She enjoyed working with fellow Kiwis; women she could connect with in a special way through a shared background. The opportunity to give back and to work with women who were committed to making the very best of the experience, is why she encourages other Mentors to take the plunge. “The diversity of background and the breadth of talent in our mentee group was incredible! It was a joy to be part of and is an experience I will always treasure”.

Our Stories: Kylee Newton

Kylee NewtonA few years ago, I heard whispers about someone selling that magical fruit - the feijoa - at a stall near Broadway Market in Hackney, east London. It turns out that someone was none other than Kylee Newton, the lovely lady behind chutney, jams and preserves brand Newton & Pott and recently published author of “The Modern Preserver” recipe book.

Fittingly, we meet on Broadway Market – a place that is near and dear to Kylee’s heart – as she has lived and worked in Hackney since her arrival in London 15 years ago, and has been coming to the Saturday market since it began 10 years ago. Kylee tells me it is her favourite market in London for the variety of food and craftsmanship (mine too) and it is where the Newton & Pott brand really came to life.

Originally from New Plymouth, Kylee graduated from art school and worked in hospitality in Auckland before moving to London where she worked as an analogue printer for photographer Wolfgang Tillmans for ten years until he relocated to Berlin.
