Australian National Student Business Plan Competition open to New Zealand pharmacy students

New Zealand’s pharmacy students are invited to participate in the eleventh Australian National Student Business Plan Competition which was launched in January during the Annual National Australian Pharmacy Students Association (NAPSA) Congress in Perth.

Team member of the 2016 winning entry, Surbhi Patel from University of Auckland, launched the competition by detailing her experience to fellow students, “I found the competition to be an invaluable experience which has set a good foundation for beginning my career as a community pharmacist, the experience made me think differently about the day to day operations of a pharmacy, especially as pharmacy management is such a small part of our curriculum.”

The competition aims to encourage student teams to use their talents and energy to create innovative new business ideas in community pharmacy through the development of competitive business plans.

The 2017 competition timeline is below and all information is available at www.guild.org.au/news-events/awards-recognition/national-student-business-plan-competition.

The competition, which commenced in 2006, encourages innovation among pharmacy students who will be the future owners of Australian and New Zealand community pharmacies. In 2017 the focus on innovation will continue, to ensure that tomorrow’s owners look for highly differentiated services that they can provide to the Australian and New Zealand markets.

The National Student Business Plan Competition is open to all students studying pharmacy in Australia and New Zealand and will provide a total of $15,000 in cash prizes to the finalists (top three teams) in addition to registration, flights and accommodation to attend the Guild Australia’s 2017 Pharmacy Connect conference.

The competition is an initiative of the Pharmacy Guild of Australia and is sponsored by Sanofi Consumer Healthcare (principal sponsor), EBOS (major sponsor) with continued sponsorship from foundation sponsors Gold Cross Products and Services and Pharmaceutical Defence Limited (PDL). The Pharmacy Guild of New Zealand is proud to support the competition, now in its third Trans-Tasman year.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
