A visit to the West Coast by NZBusiness Magazine editor Glenn Baker has left him with a deep appreciation of the collaborative approach local businesses are taking.
DWC chief executive Chris Mackenzie and event manager Aaron Rees were able to show Mr Baker some of the innovative businesses and industry on the West Coast.
“I came away with a healthy appreciation of how hard the business community is working on the Coast to build scale and create new opportunities through technology,” Mr Baker said. “And it is a community in the truest sense – people genuinely helping each other to succeed!”
“I now look forward to following the fortunes of the region as it continues to take advantage of digital and social technologies to help usher in a new era of business growth.”
Mr Baker’s visit to the West Coast will be profiled in the upcoming October edition of NZBusiness Magazine (www.nzbusiness.co.nz).
