I have been lucky enough to call the Waikato Home since 2011, but my Central Otago homeland still has a little piece of my heart. 

I have been working in event and venue management for over 20 years and I love talking shop about any tiny aspect of your event … truly, I love this stuff! 

My specialist Mastermind topics would be basketball from the late 80s early 90s, and Batman or James Bond films (love George Lazenby’s 007 but we don’t talk about George Clooney and his Bat nipples). When not at work you can find me walking our westie Rosie with my wife and two girls, coaching their basketball, or being at one with my thoughts on my mountain bike or paddleboard.

I have recently joined the events team at Wintec and am loving every minute of it! My background includes customer service and wedding coordinator roles - both of which I loved! I am passionate about exceptional customer service and my goal is that all of our clients have the best experience possible when they book an event with us. I love the fast paced, high pressure environment that working in events brings - you never know what each day is going to bring.

Outside of work I love to spending time with my husband and our zoo (Stanley the English bulldog, Garfield the Persian, and Macaroni the rabbit). I also love to spend time with my very large Croatian family, eat good food and drink great wine, go to the beach, and try and squeeze the gym in there somewhere as well!

I have been in the industry for 16 years, and I love my job. I love sound, good music, and quality sound equipment; I love lights and the way that they change spaces and ambience; and I love to design and refine with the two. I also enjoy customer service and creating which means I really look forward to hearing about what you want to do for your next event and what we can create to make your ideas come to life. 

When I’m not working I just love hanging out with my family, eating food and drinking beverages together, and going to the beach or on other road trips.

Events Administrator

Sarah.Kington@wintec.ac.nz

(07) 834 8800 ext 3288

I’ve had the privilege of working part time in the venues team since 2012. I love the fact that there tends to be no two days the same, the flexibility my role offers, and the passion my fellow colleagues demonstrate when putting awesome events together and seeing the end result.

I grew up in Hamilton and live on three acres with my husband, two children, an extremely boisterous English Staffy, a cat, and a couple of steers in the paddock. Outside of work I am a strong supporter of my children’s sporting and school activities (taxi driver), I enjoy gardening as a stress reliever and love a glass of Pinot Noir to wind down my day.

Karen Morton

Centre Co-ordinator

Karen.Morton@wintec.ac.nz

(07) 834 8800 ext 8883

I began working at Wintec in 2004 in a similar role, and then was fortunate enough to join the venues team in 2011. Since then there has been a variety of clients through The Training Space and we especially appreciate our longstanding clients.

I have been living in Hamilton for 24 years, have two adult children, two cats (Phil & Lil), and an elderly cocker spaniel. I enjoy going to live theatre and the movies, following our Magic netball team, doing the odd gym session and some of the lighter walks around the Waikato area.
