She was one of the Black Sticks (New Zealand Women's Hockey Team) most decorated players for the last decade, but due to COVID19 and the state of the world, she was able to take me up on a much more appealing offer to be a guest on this week's podcast. It all started for Brooke on the grass at Kensington Park in Whangarei in New Zealand. She was three years old when she first picked up a hockey stick and hasn't put it down since!

In 2013, she graduated as a Sir Edmund Hillary Scholar from the University of Waikato with a Bachelor of Communications, and since returning from Rio, Brooke has become an Olympic Ambassador. Through visiting over 180 schools, she has found her passion for helping young girls who are in the same boat as she was at high school, to support them through such a transformational time and help them find a sense of balance. Brooke immersed herself in self-development courses, books and podcasts, completing "The Female Leader" course run by Altris in 2016, and the "Conscious Boss Bootcamp" in 2017.

Welcome to another week of the podcast with an episode that EVERYONE needs to listen to at the moment. 2020 has not been the easiest of times for anyone, and that's why today's guest Dana Kerford is here to help. Not only is Dana full of energy and fun, but she is also one of the best in the business with building, fostering and creating lasting and meaningful friendships. Dana Kerford is a friendship expert and the Founder of URSTRONG. Dana's career as a teacher began in 2004 when, after settling into grade 4 at a private school in Canada, she quickly identified the intensity and complexity of friendships for young girls. Inspired by her students, Dana began researching relational aggression, conflict resolution, and the inner workings of female relationships. In 2009, Dana developed and launched the first-ever GirlPower friendship program, teaching her students how to foster a community of kindness and support. The girls embraced the program and learned how to have a voice in their friendships, improving the overall culture of the school. Dana knew she needed to devote her life to this and her husband, Michael, believed in her dream and turned GirlPower into a company. Since then, Dana has worked with tens of thousands of girls, parents, and educators in schools and community-based venues across Canada, the United States, and Australia. In 2012, Dana wrote and published her first book, The Friendship Project – a workbook for parents and tween girls. During that time, every co-gendered school she went in, the #1 question she heard was, "What about the boys?" After extensive research on the social dynamics of boys, Dana created a pilot program and conducted sessions with hundreds of tween boys in 11 schools across three countries. In 2014, she launched GirlPower's brother program, GoodGuys – the first-ever friendship program for boys. In 2016, Dana and Michael were invited to an exclusive conference on gender equality at the White House to share the successes behind GirlPower & GoodGuys. This experience led them to rebrand the company to URSTRONG, a friendship program for children. Dana has a team of Presenters that she trains and coaches and is involved in every aspect of the business. Media outlets around the world regularly interview her; in magazines, newspapers, and been a guest on numerous television and radio programs.
