  • Date Added: 13 May 2013 from BusinessNZ

  • From the culinary creativity of Annabel Langbein to the innovative genius of Lanzatech’s Dr Sean Simpson, and many more, Kiwis are making it big around the globe. Next Thursday, they are sharing their success with other Kiwis at Go Global in Auckland.

    Go Global is a unique opportunity for Kiwi firms to hear how others have mastered export success by making innovation integral to their business.

    Catherine Beard, executive director of ExportNZ hosting the conference, says “For such a tiny island nation as ours, making the world our market is essential to survival and growth. There’s no better way to learn than from other Kiwis who are out there doing the business, learning the lessons and succeeding.

    “We have been blown away with the generosity of spirit from the speakers willing to share their success tips to help make New Zealand a great exporting nation. We have so much innovation and talent to sell to the world, we just need to understand the best way of doing it.

    “This year’s Programme really is the most outstanding value. We've secured the best line up of exporting stars to share learnings, challenge and inspire in one powerful one-hit day. I hope any business owner who wants to improve their international business will invest a day of their time in this for some outstanding results.”
