Founders and Co-directors Anna Dean and Angela Meyer have a proven track record of developing campaigns and strategies that put their Gender Intelligence insights into action.

They have created an extensive range of successful commercial, social and political campaigns in New Zealand and internationally.

Angela has led top marketing and communications teams and is a published author. She started trans-Tasman dance company The Real Hot Bitches, and The Man Bank, a dating agency. She is regularly asked to join panels to speak to our Double Denim Gender Intelligence Insights Report (2017) and the ways in which businesses can use our insights to leverage the power of gender intelligence. She has twice been nominated for the Westpac Women of Influence Awards (2016 and 2018).

Anna is an experienced creative impact producer, in high demand across the film industry and arts sector as a PR maven, social media strategist and memorable event creator. She is sought out to share her expertise on content marketing and making impact at conferences and events like The Big Screen Symposium, Creative New Zealand Big Idea and Creative Mornings Auckland.
