About Harry

 

I’m Harry and I founded Knight Life. I’m originally from Christchurch, New Zealand but have been based in the U.K. for the last three years working mainly with two non-profit organisations – City to Sea and WikiHouse Foundation (now Open Systems Lab). While in New Zealand I gained 5 years of experience working in the social economy of a post disaster city. This proved to be an incredibly defining time in my life that has guided me into much of the work I do now.

During this time I became more and more interested in how we work together to create positive impact in our local towns and communities. This has led to further training with Gallup, inc. where I became a Gallup Certified StrengthsFinder coach. I’m determined to help and work alongside young startups and non-profit organisations that have radical business models and a passion for positive social change. My roots come from training in the collaborative and experimental performing art that is Jazz. When travelling across borders I always change what I write in the ‘occupation’ section of my landing card.
