In a long career now spanning 40 years Tony has worked as a technology supplier and fundraiser for many international charities including Greenpeace, Amnesty International, Oxfam and NZ Red Cross. Tony has combined two careers to build great tools for fundraisers while also practising as a fundraiser. As Founder and CEO of Vega.Works Tony brings a lifetime of experience and case studies in success, from working in New Zealand, Australia and Europe.
In Vega.Works, Tony has realised a life-long ambition to bring the very best world class fundraising technologies and techniques and make them available in New Zealand at a fraction of their previous cost.
Tony conceived of and co-wrote “Paradise Saved – The Incredible story of New Zealand wildlife sanctuaries and how they are stemming the tide of extinction”, published by Random House New Zealand and Tony has just completed “Effective Fundraising in the age of Social Media” which is due for publication in early 2017.
Tony’s role in Vega is to help charities get the most from their move to a next generation platform like Vega through helping them achieve record setting results. Tony will share case studies from this experience.
