Janet’s adventurous life includes working in innovation, health and business. Her mandate is to Eradicate Pain Poverty through Innovation, Invention and Collaboration. At 21 she worked in Papua New Guinea (PNG) managing a malnutrition and labour ward, and delivered ante-natal and child immunisation programs. She has worked for Air Ambulance and in Occupational Health. Janet conceptualised and brought to market, KEYRites the World’s best copy-holder to reduce RSI in people working with personal computers. She conceptualised and developed NUAZ, the New Zealand Health Tourism Company which took 3 years to set up. In the first year of business, NUAZ turned over 3 million dollars. Janet is proud of the service NUAZ provided as it improved the health and well-being of many people who could not receive the care they required in their home territory. Janet is an avid student with a number of qualifications. As a life member of Frontier Trainings she is being trained by world leading experiential games expert Clinton Swaine. As a member of Business Blueprint she is fast-tracking the development of a new business, ‘Bizgrowglobal’ to educate clever, creative, and disruptive 14 to 18 year olds to identify, solve problems and create an income. Janet cared for her husband Rewi Kemp for over three years before he died from cancer in November 2015. Janet defines this time as the most precious and rewarding time of her life.
Janet now works with inventors and innovators to bring to market ecological products that solve problems.
