Erica Brooks is the Urban Aviatrix.
In my daily life I write, facilitate, research and educate, working as a media analyst and senior communications advisor for NZ govt. But my background is in the arts and entertainment.
A designer by training and trade, my love for connection and communication has led to a diverse body of work, over more than 20 years spent living and working around the globe. From brand management, marketing and UX, to business development, sales, event production, coaching, and work on set in New Zealand’s film industry.
This broad experience reflects my multi-disciplinary skills and capabilities, and wide ranging interests, woven together by the common threads of story, empathy and human connection. People are the reason I do what I do, and I’m a firm believer in business as a holistic enterprise - when we build into those around us, then we build strong, supportive, healthy teams, that make for better businesses and organisations. To this aim, wherever I am and whatever I’m doing, I like to foster positive, collaborative, creative environments where ideas flourish and people feel nourished.
I tend to keep multiple projects on the go, and am always up for coffee and a conversation if you’re doing interesting things! Get in touch via the form below.
