NZ Teen in SingularityU Project Heha Global Competition to Create Super Happiness

The Super Happiness Challenge is looking for solutions to help people achieve true happiness, and has invited people from all over the world to share unique solutions to co-create a happier world.

18 year old student, Lucia Kennedy, has reached the semi-finals with her project called Luminary Legacies, the only kiwi to do so and from an expected 5000 entries. Her idea is to get people to promote, congratulate and acknowledge those who have made an impact on our lives, using apps and other forms of social media to do so, around the world.

"It’s about us getting connected with each other, our friends, families, peers, and the communities we belong to.  In the act of acknowledgment, people get to know they make a difference and they have left a legacy or their signature of their life", says Lucia.

Come on NEW ZEALAND let's vote!


Our goal is to create 1 billion luminaries, billion legacies and in the process activate 2 billion moments of happiness that last forever. " Real acknowledgement is a gift that keeps giving; it gives us the option to be generous, be big, inspire, connect while also making someone else happy - that's super happiness right there, says Lucia"

Between 2006 and 2010 I engaged Wendy in my capacity as General Manager for Redken and Matrix at L’Oreal to do several growth projects – covering brand vision, team alignment, and uncovering opportunities in the salon market. One of the projects was on a larger scale and involved research in both our client and consumer audience as well as with my internal stakeholders. Over the coming 2 years we achieved breakthrough growth +7.5% Sales in the brand in a flat to negative market. The engagement and empowerment in the team was significantly different to what I had experienced before and the results came with ease due to the clear coaching and strategies for action. My brands results were recognised at a global level in Paris in 2013.

The biggest difference Wendy’s leadership coaching has made to me personally is the ability to really experience my own success and a belief in my leadership abilities – she takes away the barriers in my thinking which allows me the space to think outside the ‘box’ and gives me a place to lead my team from. The unique point of difference is her ability to simultaneously coach at a personal and business level due to her strong commercial and strategic experience – I trust her commercial opinion and love the fact that she is always ahead of trends in strategic thinking and innovation. There is always someone in her vast network that has seeded an idea with her or is working on the next big breakthrough in another industry that I can gain inspiration from. You definitely get the best of both worlds.

- Rachael Armstrong, General Manager, LO'real NZ
What I liked about Wendy was her unique ability to support each person to achieve what it was they wanted by identifying what has stopped them in the past.

It was this skill that had me take on personal coaching with Wendy. I could see that having an objective and vision was not enough to have me be successful.

Further using Wendy’s skills I was able to understand how my beliefs, habits, and emotions affected my ability to achieve my goals.

With the training and tools provided by Wendy I was able to create a plan and activate my drive to accomplish and succeed in bringing my visions and dreams into reality.

With these skills I have successfully created a large group in Christchurch that is now influencing sustainable and community focused design in the rebuild of Christchurch.

This group has now linked with many other professionals around New Zealand. Due to the trust I have in Wendy I am invested in her working with our team to achieve further successes in these areas.

Please do not hesitant to contact me if you have further questions.

I suspect that the main reason for Wendy's success is that all her work (both business and community) is based on a very solid foundation of integrity, and by that I mean from both a moral perspective and more importantly from a desire to be whole and complete in all interactions with people. She also has a capacity to see what's not there and find innovative solutions where others are stuck.

I trust Wendy's judgement and on several occasions I have taken action on her advice that "you need to do this" - I haven't regretted taking her advice. I am not alone in trusting Wendy because she is known for honouring her word and being trustworthy. As a consultant, all you have is your reputation, and Wendy certainly has a good reputation built on trust.

- John Baigent
Her commitment to New Zealand and the community is unquestionable and has seen her deliver some fantastic opportunities to the business and local community whether this is the design of Rutherford Innovation Forums profiling NZ trade and industry at the 2011 World Cup, or bringing the Dr Grordborts exhibition to Christchurch NZ, or leading personal development workshops for people to benefit the community wellbeing, such as Beautiful Minds, a confidence and self-esteem course for teenagers.
Wendy’s an accomplished innovator, facilitator and performance coach and has made a significant impact over her career on many company staff and executives both here and in New Zealand, especially as a role model for the Pacific Island community.
