Vanessa Roberts

Kapiti & Wellington Talent Partner, connector, advisor

Over the past 12 years, I’ve had a very fulfilling career within Human Resources, Organisational Development and Recruitment, both as a leader and business partner where I have provided a variety of specialist HR services and advice to executives, leaders and employees. What I’ve learnt during this time is simple… people truly are your most valuable asset! As cliché as it sounds, the combination of hiring the right people and genuinely caring - and showing that you care - is fundamental to the success of any business!


I’m passionate about understanding what makes people tick and love nothing more than having meaningful conversations about purpose – you’ll often hear me asking the big “WHY” question. I love that at Sprout we are courageous enough to have conversations about these very important things and that we partner with people and businesses who are open to talking about the things that really matter.


Originally from Cape Town South Africa, I have the honour of calling the beautiful Kapiti Coast my home. And yes… I fervently support the All Blacks! My desire to understand what makes me, me has recently sent me on a journey of discovering and learning about transformational coaching and I find real joy in helping and enabling others to understand and connect to their own personal purpose. I’m curious about understanding what drives human behaviour so you will often find me (somewhat obsessively) researching and reading books about behavioural science, philosophy and neuroscience.


I’m a mum to 3 dogs, 3 cats and one precious little human who constantly keeps me on my toes and encourages me daily to be the best that I can be.
