Anne Rodda, Director and founder of Voyager Advisory, is a highly respected Not for Profit leader. She has headed several of Aotearoa New Zealand’s high-profile cultural and educational organisations, has consulted to local government and charities, lectured in arts industry management and served on granting committees, government and Not for Profit boards.
Anne delivered the 2020 New Zealander of the Year Awards and is member of the NZ Institute of Directors and Public Relations Institute of New Zealand.
Voyager Advisory works with a team of industry experts, such as legal, digital, design specialists, to provide a holistic and one-stop-shop service.
A ‘creative’ with a commercial mind-set and a social conscience, I purposefully moved into the management environment 20 years ago and have since led six high-profile NFPs, consistently increasing revenue, audience, brand-awareness and net profit. I have delivered quality experiences for New Zealand – always within the context of high public scrutiny, demanding outcomes, and in the most underfunded and challenging business sectors in the country.
It's now my turn to give back. To share what I've learned and to help others navigate with ability and confidence.

I was privileged to work with Anne in her capacity as National Manager of the NZ of the Year awards. She is a great person to have on your team, bringing clear, incisive, creative thinking and most especially, integrity to every part of a project. Her wealth of knowledge and experience will ensure you and your organisation are in very safe hands.

2020 New Zealander of the Year
Anne is a sharp thinker - always able to see the big picture - but then cut to the chase and design easily navigated pathways to achieve goals. Recently Anne helped design a tactical plan to on-board new high net worth donors. She deftly analysed the environment we work in (a sector that was relatively new to her) and then prepared an innovative plan that was easy to understand, follow, implement and measure. I can certainly attest to Anne's leadership, integrity, trustworthiness and high standards, but also her ability to find the the good, and the fun in all she does. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
