Kaye also worked on the production team of large scale special events Live Aid, USA for Africa and Conspiracy of Hope:25thBbirthday Anniversary of Amnesty International American Tour, which was telecasted worldwide.

“Upon returning to New Zealand Kaye managed events and sponsorship campaigns for a wide range of organistions including Diners Club International, New Zealand Tourism Board and The Foundation for the Blind to name a few.

“This wealth of experience and knowledge will add a broader dimension to our offering to the Auckland market as well as to the wider Avenues team,” she said.
