National Tour – Dunedin

(i) Public event – 18 March 2014

Learn more about the Dunedin event on our blog post.
Date: 18 March
Time: 5.00 pm – 7.00 pm
Location: Cadbury World Cafe, 280 Cumberland St, Dunedin

This event brought together local talent for a wider discussion on talent in Dunedin. 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 Dunedin.

At the Dunedin public event, Wendy was joined by three of the interviewees from the 2013 TalentNZ Journal – chief executive of NZX Tim Bennett, Otago University Professors Paul Hansen (economics) and Jim Flynn (political studies). You can watch Paul Hansen and Jim Flynn’s videos on our YouTube channel.
