Learn more about the Christchurch event on our blog post.

Date: 20 March 2014
Time: 5.00 pm – 7.00 pm
Location: Grant Thornton, Level 3, 2 Hazeldean Road, Addington

This event brought together local talent for a wider discussion on talent in Christchurch. Working on the unique needs and characteristics of each community, we hope that this discussion might act as an impetus to share ideas and connect the people who can take those ideas and spread them throughout Christchurch.

At the Christchurch event, Wendy was joined by three of the interviewees from the 2013 TalentNZ Journal – local councillor Raf Manji, foresight consultant Roger Dennis and Chief Executive of NZX Tim Bennett. This event was filmed – watch the videos.
