Some upcoming seminars for business owners.


MAX MASTERCLASS Dr Robert Cooper, one of the world’s foremost new product development and innovation gurus, is heading to New Zealand. His masterclass workshop on Maximising Profit From New Products is targeted at directors, managers and marketing and R&D professionals, and will be held on March 15 & 16 at Auckland’s SkyCity Convention Centre.


Science and innovation is the topic of an upcoming panel at the Auckland Museum, from early ‘Number 8 Wire’  agricultural inventions through to current biotech projects and speculation on the future of the industry. The discussion will be moderated by Finlay Macdonald and features inventor/entrepreneur Ray Avery (sound familiar? You might recall he recently won New Zealander of the Year; we also profiled him not so long ago) and Dr Helen Anderson of the Ministry of Research Science and Technology. Mark Thursday evening in your diary and book a place online.
