Qiujing Easterbrook-Wong

Chief Executive, Borderless

Qiujing (Q) is an entrepreneur of Chinese & NZ European descent born in New Zealand and raised between Fiji and New Zealand. She and her husband and business partner Dean, have two young children – Gretta (who is nearly 4) and Henry (now 10 months).

10 years ago, Dean and Q embarked on their new venture, Borderless.

Borderless champions social change both in NZ and abroad – utilising a convergence of traditional industries and skills like marketing, advertising, filmmaking and social sciences to drive better outcomes for causes that matter.

Over the years, Borderless has made its mark across a variety of social issues – to name a few we have…

  • The creation of A Grandmother’s Tribe, an award winning film and global initiative to raise funds and awareness for grandmothers of sub-Saharan Africa; and
  • Supporting the creation of Be. Accessible, a NZ social change campaign to create the world’s first accessible nation, reframing how we think about and address a disabling world; and
  • Creating Harpooned Soul: the Jade Bell story, another award winning North American project inviting kids to choose creativity over drug abuse.

Today, Q and Borderless consult to a range of private and public sector organisations – making films, designing approaches to tackle social change opportunities and working collaboratively to make them happen!

In 2012, Q was awarded the Sir Peter Blake Leadership Award for her work in social change
