OUR PEOPLE - JANE SMALLFIELD
Global Alliances Officer
As Global Alliances Officer (an honorary position), Jane is our main point of contact for the various technology organisations we associate with globally. Jane also works with NZTech to look for opportunities to promote NZTech companies in global technology awards.
Jane has been involved with promoting the technology sector in New Zealand and beyond since the 1990’s when she was employed to provide PR for NZInc. In 2003 she joined the NZ HiGrowth Project as its full time employee; the project was charged with growing the ICT industry in New Zealand and initiated a number of significant projects covering education, immigration and infrastructure.
When HiGrowth concluded in 2007, Jane played a key role in the restructure of the NZ Hi-Tech Awards and became actively involved in the NZ Software Association executive, serving as President for 2012 – 2013. Taking on a voluntary role with NZ Tech has been a natural extension of the work she continues to do on a pro-bono basis including judging, connecting, mentoring and capability building across the tech sector.
