WELLINGTON – October 2008 – Wavelength (www.wl.co.nz) won Gold at the 2008 Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning Awards (www.brandon-hall.com).

"This is great news for New Zealand. We Kiwis believe we've got something special to offer the world. This award proves we can deliver world-changing products," says Craig Duker, Wavelength's Operations Manager, who picked the Gold up at the awards ceremony in San Jose, California.
