Throw together 13 years of journalistic experience on one of New Zealand's recognised provincial
newspapers and then a stint of communications freelancing. Add almost six years of ground-breaking work in what was an embryonic sport and recreation sector. Top with 20 years of senior management contribution in local government.
And sprinkle with consultancy and hospitality experience over the last few years...
That gives you a Lorraine Vincent slice of life.
