Gold Awards demonstrate region’s talent

The Wellington Gold Awards have demonstrated yet again the region’s huge wealth of talent across a wide range of business activity, says Wellington Employers’ Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Raewyn Bleakley.

“The Chamber would like to congratulate the winners.

“If there was ever any doubt that one of our region’s main strengths is its people, then these awards dispel that.

“It’s significant that businesses from right across the region were represented and went on to win awards tonight.

“It’s also significant that the sciences were well represented, because that is one sector which delivers direct and lasting benefits for not just the local economy, but for the national economy as well.”
