NZPB August 2022

The August edition of NZPB has been released, and although unintended, there is a theme running through the magazine.  In four columns, written by four different people, there is a strong thread of where we are, what we’re doing with what we have, where we want to be, and what we need to do to get there. Its about acknowledging our current state, making the most of our current position, strategically planning our next move, and making sure we plan to progress in a sustainable manner, to ensure longevity.
