Bex Taylor

Marketing Manager

Bex is one of those whose job title couldn’t possibly encapsulate all of the different hats she wears here at The Mind Lab. As Marketing Manager across The Mind Lab & Tech Futures Lab, her role is in driving creative, brand, marketing, website and content projects to help share our programmes with people across Aotearoa, and beyond. She’s an expert at bringing people together to make stuff happen, and will often be brought into projects just to ensure they actually happen, on time, and with all key stakeholders satisfied. 

Specifically, Bex manages the social media channels for The Mind Lab and through this gets the chance to engage with our community and share stories from students and graduates – a part of her role she loves. She also organises online and face-to-face events designed to create conversations, connections and provide information for our programmes and platforms. Not stopping there Bex also supports a number of internal initiatives through her role in the Health & Wellbeing Committee, Alumni working group and her enthusiasm and organisation skills are key to helping drive some of the great fun we have as staff behind the scenes.

Bex has a Bachelor of Communications from Auckland University of Technology, which combined with her natural bubbliness and energy, is no doubt how she manages to keep on top of all of the different projects and initiatives she’s part of. She has also achieved three levels (Tahi, Rua and Toru) of Māori Language and Culture from Unitec, and brings a lot of this learning into her role at The Mind Lab.

For Bex, the future of education is simple. It’s about having a growth mindset and making a commitment to lifelong learning – something Bex lives every day she turns up to work.

Her life in music is a combination of three songs: Across the Universe by The Beatles, Rivers and Roads by The Head & The Heart and Better Together by Jack Johnson – that paints a pretty clear picture of her caring, adventurous and nature loving soul.

Although it’s clear her superpowers are numerous, around here it’s her ability to help others bring their ideas to life with her project management super skills, and we’ve seen many a colleague amazed at how quickly and efficiently she can do this. Bex is a pocket rocket of energy, who can take any project, at any stage, and turn it into something epic, and the energy and passion she brings to our team is second to none.
