For the past 17 years Glenda has been facing endometriosis head on, with a daughter who has endured more surgeries than the years she’s been suffering. She is thrilled to have been asked to contribute and be a part of the board of Endometriosis NZ. Without the support of this organisation and Deborah Bush she can’t imagine where they may have ended up.
Glenda owns Harding Consultants, a small consultancy that organises conferences, seminars and events for a wide variety of organisations. She is one of only 50 certified Event Managers throughout Australasia. She also runs a very successful recruitment training business, where she trains recruitment consultants throughout New Zealand. Board roles in the past included Chairing the Board of Trustees at Paparoa Street Primary School (11 years) and Dress for Success Christchurch (5 years). Charity work has involved the Koru Care Charity Auction, Canterbury Cancer Ball and Lions Foundation Charity Dinner for Camp Quality (Children Living with Cancer). She is regarded as someone who 'can look outside the square' to help create and look at different and unique solutions.
Glenda is married to Julian, who has his own jewellery business, and has 3 children, Abby, Tyler and Rosie: a very new grandson – Huxley along with 3 fabulous partners to their children.
Glenda looks forward to contributing towards Endometriosis NZ, which already has a well proven track record in supporting the research and treatment of endometriosis; a significant education programme and ongoing support to the many thousands of sufferers.
