As an immigrant to NZ, I was struggling to find a course that could give me a good overview of the local employment law, until I found ExceedHR. On top of that, Lisa is super clear and explains complex concepts in an easy way, which helps a lot if you are not a native speaker. I wouldn't change a thing from the training, go purchase it!

This course delivered exactly what I had hoped, a good refresher on the knowledge I've gained on-the-job over the years and also introducing me to some new topics that are relevant to my role.

I was looking for a course that would give me a good overview and refresher on NZ employment law without having to pay thousands of dollars and attend a 1-2 day training. The content of the Legal Lowdown covered all the major topics I was looking for in a concise but informative and engaging way and I got to do it in my own time at my own pace. The cherry on top- it's all available for me to watch again whenever I need to revisit the content!

I did the ‘Introduction to NZ Employment Law' online course. It was practical, 100% relevant to NZ and easy to navigate. It’s helped me with a few situations at work, and I only did the course two months ago!

Lisa is very knowledgeable and answered all questions kindly and informed - never makes you feel silly for asking something! The course I did was a great overview on HR matters and easy to understand, bite sized pieces that you could do at your own time as little or much as you wanted.

HR Coach, Consultant, Business Partner and Digital Educator.

With over 8 years working in HR in high-volume employment relations roles I feel like I have seen it all – the good, the bad and the downright ugly. And let me tell you, when things go wrong, it can get very ugly indeed!

The thing is, it doesn’t need to.

If you have the right knowledge, the right approach, and you take quick and purposeful action, you are more likely to influence and deliver positive outcomes for all the parties involve.

With my extensive experience navigating, leading, supporting and resolving hundreds of different employment related matters, I am now passionate about educating and upskilling others and advocating for superior HR practices and application.

This is why I created this course, to share my expertise and knowledge distilled into a simple format to teach you everything you need to know to avoid ‘the ugly’ and make a real impact in your workplace.

Join me, and let’s take your skills to the next level!
