Heading out into your business world
The Business Innovation team have been keeping busy in the Nelson business world over recent months.
In May, Gilbert and Paul presented on business strategy to a group of entrepreneurial businesses at the Nelson Tasman Business Trust, providing useful insights into how to plan for growth. They were also part of the advisory panel helping Nelson participants of the Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) to develop their concepts for May’s YES Dragons’ Den – innovation is alive and well amongst the next generation!
Paul is also on the governance board of INNOVATE, a very cool new initiative supported by the Nelson City Council, Nelson Regional EDA and the Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology. Through INNOVATE, both Gilbert and Paul completed the internationally-acclaimed Co.Starters facilitation training in June, joining a team of other business leaders bringing the programme to the region.
