The Education and Events team are the planning force behind all NHPC events, including the NHPC Annual National Conference, Annual General Meeting, and Connections Cafes. The team also helps the NHPC staff to organize any public appearances and high profile meetings.
Shingai joined the NHPC in June 2013 and is involved in planning NHPC events, organizing information related to events, and helping members with any inquiries relating to education and events.
Shingai holds a Bachelor of Social Science in Business Management and Economics. Before joining the NHPC, Shingai worked in Research and Policy development for the Government in Zimbabwe, as well as customer service in St Catharines, ON.
