Podcast 10 - Regenerative City Strategies - Helen Beaumont

Helen has a passion for strategies that create regenerative cities. She heads the Strategy and Policy team for Christchurch City in New Zealand. You will hear through her conversation her love for leading and working in teams that create people centred cities. Her mentors encouraged her to grow and expand her wisdom beyond what she had formally studied. This led her on a journey through analytical science, research, working as a commissioner, learning mediation skills and strategic formulation. Helen has a good way with crafting words and making complex subjects understandable. I love her phrase “Good strategy and policy in a city is like plumbing and electrical wires in a house. You don’t know they are there until they go wrong.” So true. Christchurch found that out the hard way.

This left the city broken...
