Fran Hoover Consulting

With over 30 years' experience as an organisational leader and learning professional, I have held both operational and enabling leadership positions in government agencies such as Housing NZ and Oranga Tamariki, as well as in national NGO’s. I  truly understand the complexities and challenges of organisations and this enables me to develop innovative solutions with clients which generate real change and are also practical and achievable. 

As a consultant I have been privileged to have worked with many different organisations across government, commercial and community sectors, including: Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Health, Barnardos, SealesWinslow, Plunket, Ministry of Social Development, Save the Children, Kapiti Coast District Council, NZ Police and The Stroke Foundation.

Let's chat about how I could help you and your team. 


I am an accredited practitioner of the Strengthscope® suite. Strengthscope® is a powerful tool to help you and your team understand and develop your unique strengths and mitigate performance risks to deliver better results. Approved by the British Psychological Society, Strengthscope is workplace focused, uses universal business language (no jargon or psychobabble here), and helps you to have great conversations and support performance improvement and team cohesion in the real world. 

I am also a certified facilitator of Meetings That Matter, developed by Alicia McKay. Meetings That Matter provides a flexible but structured approach for leading strategic conversations that drive action outside the room. That matters, because without action it doesn’t matter how good our ideas are - they won’t go anywhere.
