NAME: David Kennedy What aspirations do you have for New Zealand? To be a lighthouse for other countries to visit and see how we are adapting to the changing world. It is the responsibility of leaders to create a platform for domestic success and international partnerships for today and the future.

Meet the TechLeader – Angela Nash

NAME: Angela Nash What impact will tech have for all New Zealanders? We are well into the start of a new era and we can't truly fathom the potential impact of tech in the next 10, 20 or 30 years. What we do know, is that change is coming and just as we have seen the arrival of mobile devices (with more computing power in them than what it took to land on the moon) we will see astonishing leaps in the technology that impacts our daily lives. The pace of change is incredible and I want to see New Zealand leading the global charge and embracing technology to benefit everyone. We are uniquely positioned to adopt technology quickly and as a nation, we are inherently open to trying new things.
