Senior Associate Roberts Day
"One of the most profound memories I have growing up in the Wheatbelt was the strong sense of community and the close bonds forged, which remain today — even though I left there nearly 30 years ago. This experience was combined with the opportunity to attend a country boarding school that was a cultural melting pot in every sense. It is with these foundations that I developed such a fascination and respect for people, diverse cultures and the importance of community.”
Her ethos is to make sure the community is ‘all aboard’ so a project can successfully launch and be delivered on the ground. Because without stakeholder engagement, the best laid place-making strategies will come to nothing. Before starting with RobertsDay in 2015, Zanda established her own consultancy firm ZKC, and was a founding director of Place Match, an integrated place making consultancy which delivers people-focused outcomes in urban renewal, greenfield and regional development projects across Western Australia.
