February – AucklandICT Industry Meeting – Business challenges in 2010:

This month’s presentation draws on the knowledge of Auckland ICT members who advise high growth businesses from throughout New Zealand on branding, legal issues and business development. This is a great opportunity to hear how other businesses are faring and also meet some of the talent within the cluster.

Business challenges in 2010:

  • What challenges are you facing this year in NZ and export markets?
  • Are you alone or do other companies face similar challenges?
Consider expert perspectives from three Auckland ICT members on branding, legal and business development issues for the year ahead.
1 – Baruch ter Wal MD of Lee Ter Wal Design
Using design to drive improved B2B sales and marketing
2 – Simon Vannini – Partner at Simpson Grierson
Supply & distribution arrangements and structuring options for growth
3 – Simon Fawkes – Director of Business to Markets Planning,
Marketing & business development for export growth
We will start with each panel member providing their take on the important issues for hi-tech firms intent on growing in offshore markets this year. You’ll then have the chance to pose your questions to the panel.
You are invited to submit questions in advance by email to events at aucklandict.org.nz and these can be tabled anonymously if you prefer.
We are looking forward to a lively and stimulating session, which Brian Moxey will chair.
