Speakers

Kingi Biddle – Tues Dec 3

Tēnā koutou katoa. My name is Kingi Biddle. I am from the Waka of Te Arawa, Mataatua and Tainui. 

I have spent my working life involved in Communication. Whether it be in Radio, Television or Public Speaking, I have a heart to share messages with people, and helping them learn to share their kōrero too.

My greatest achievements are being a husband, Dad, son, brother, relation and friend. My biggest faith is in the goodness of people. Our ability to overcome with a spirit that unites us all.

In my kōrero I will be talking about how Maori see wai – the water in the hope that you will see the water in a totally different way

Me he Whare Hukahuka – ka pakeke haere taku tu – great captains are known in the roar of the ocean

Ka nui te mihi

Graeme Campbell – Wed Dec 4

Graeme has had 30 years of experience working with communities to mitigate the effects of natural hazards primarily related to flooding, cyclones and tsunami.  He is currently the Manager of the flood protection department of Greater Wellington and has been in that position for the last 5 years.  Prior to that Graeme was the Manager of AC Consulting Group Ltd’s River Marine and Civil Works business unit, working extensively within New Zealand, the Pacific and Asia.  Work undertaken has included pre and post disaster assessment, hazard mapping, mitigation assessment including structural and non structural solutions and implementation of mitigation options.  The involvement of the community in the decision making process has formed a key part of all of the projects giving Graeme experience in working with individuals, communities, asset managers, local and regional councils as well as politicians at a national level.

 

Graeme’s experience specifically related to the rivers in New Zealand includes extensive geomorphologic studies of the Waipaoa, Rangitiki, Waikanae, Otaki, Hutt and Ruamahanga Rivers.  These studies have included analysis of river alignment change from historical survey and aerial photography, bed level surveys, gravel balance analysis, hydraulic modeling, design of edge protection works, environmental investigations and other river specific assessments.

Catherine Moore – Thur Dec 5

Dr Catherine Moore is a groundwater scientist and modeller.  Most recently she has led the groundwater modelling team at GNS Science in New Zealand and been working at CSIRO in Brisbane, Australia.  She has more than 25 years’ experience in local government, groundwater consultancies and research organizations.  Her modelling interests include the development of pragmatic tools for robust decision-support modelling, quantifying model predictive uncertainty, identifying cost-effective data acquisition and monitoring strategies, and optimising model-data assimilation.  Some of her current work is focussing on mathematical and empirical explorations of appropriate model complexity to enhance decision support.
