Laura Leadbetter

Marketing and Communication Lead

Laura brings experience in project management, communication, and community engagement. After eight years in London, where she worked in Asset Management as a Project Manager, she returned home to New Plymouth. Upon her return, she co-founded Roar Collective, NZ’s first dedicated podcast production company, while starting a family. She led podcast projects with clients such as Venture Taranaki, Westpac Bank, and the NZX.

A few years ago, Laura made the decision to move into the not-for-profit sector. Since then, she has spent time at Building Wellness Taranaki and continues to lead communication and engagement for Big Brothers Big Sisters.  Laura is passionate about the region and its people. She loves building relationships, telling stories that matter, and celebrating local successes.

Joining the Taranaki Foundation whānau is an honour for Laura—a chance to give back and make a lasting impact on a place she is very proud to call home, for generations to come.
