We help you unleash your brand’s potential through engaging experiences that connect with your target audience—introducing them to who you are and allowing them to experience your brand up close and personal.

We’re the New Powerhouse in Town, a Tight-Knit Team With Big Dreams

Destro was born in a Mt. Eden flat during the oh-so-crazy year of 2020—a year that highlighted the importance of community and in-person connections. 

We've since expanded beyond Auckland to Queenstown, Bali and London! We now boast a nationwide network of aspirational, ambitious, and influential ambassadors that are integral to Destro.

And our clients? They're innovators, visionaries, and downright unafraid to dream big.

        Our values

Good humans
We’re there for each other and our clients. Whether we’re in a great mood or having a bad day, we try our best to remain kind and optimistic.
Pushing boundaries
We break barriers and redefine what’s possible, creating a world of endless possibilities.
Passionate people are at the centre of everything we do. We recruit ambassadors with different backgrounds and passions, encouraging them to bring their passion into everything they do—inside and outside of work.
Encourage innovation
We foster a creative and inclusive culture that encourages innovation and teamwork. We aren’t afraid to pitch new ideas—we encourage it.
Celebrate every Tom, Dick and Sally
We love and embrace the unique qualities and perspectives that everyone brings to the table. You don’t need to look a certain way to join the Destro Team. It is important to us that everyone feels valued, respected, and free to express their authentic selves.

Portia Brodie—Founder.
If you’re looking for someone who’s equal parts professional and party, I’m your gal. With an adventurous spirit and meticulous attention to detail, I’m skilled at keeping the energy high without compromising on professionalism.

Fearlessly diving into the industry as a once-shy teenager, I have strengthened my natural talent for bringing people together—cultivating lifelong connections with clients, brand ambassadors, and suppliers. 

When I’m not working, you’ll find me whipping up culinary masterpieces (I make a mean Yorkshire pudding), staying active at the gym, and going on adventures with my partner Michael.
At karaoke, I’m singing: ‘We Will Rock You’ by Queen.

If I were a cocktail, I would be: An espresso martini (shaken, of course!).
Tori Rogers—Senior Account Manager.
A true hustler at heart, I have the drive and spirit to turn your vision into reality while keeping the party going. 

You name it, I’ve done it—from working in marketing agencies to waitressing on trampolines! My diverse experiences have allowed me to get personally involved with activations and approach client meetings with big ideas. 

In our industry, actions speak louder than words, and I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty and get the work done—unless I’ve just had a manicure...in which case, I’m a pro at delegating. When I’m not bringing the party to your events, you can find me planning my next trip to Bali or *cough* winning *cough* game nights with some friendly competition.
At karaoke, I’m singing: ‘Forget You’ by Ceelo Green.

If I were a cocktail, I would be: Cocktail? No thank you, your finest glass of red wine would be more up my alley. But if I had to pick, I’m a simple gal: vodka soda with a fresh slice of lime, stirred, not shaken.
stella lam—Senior talent Manager.
Sweet, social, and not afraid to show a bit of spice—I’ll make your brand ambassador experience an unforgettable one. I strive to make sure everyone has a great time, clients are represented by top-notch ambassadors, and our events run smoothly.

In my free time, I can be found at the gym, hunting for the perfect cup of coffee, travelling around the world, and spending time with family.Life as a Talent Manager is like hosting one big, never-ending party, and I’m here to make sure our brand ambassadors are always the life of it!
At karaoke, I’m singing: ‘Love on Top’ by Beyonce.

If I were a cocktail, I would be: A mimosa—I’m bubbly like prosecco and a morning person.
