Disappointed To See Dhb Chief Executive Resign

''We are disappointed to learn of the resignation of Nelson Marlborough District Health Board Chief Executive, Glenys Baldick,'' said Mr Ian Powell, Executive Director of the Association of Salaried Medical Specialists, today.

“Although we have had different views over some issues, throughout her lengthy time as chief executive she has always avoided the abrasive and aggressive managerial style that has often been practised in many other parts of the country.”

“As far back as 1992 she was prepared to negotiate a collective agreement with senior doctors when many other chief executives were refusing to negotiate and the government of the day was unhappy with.”

“Our experience has been that under her leadership Nelson Marlborough has had far less employment disputes than most other parts of the country.”

“There is much to be said for the stable conciliatory managerial style that she has provided,” concluded Mr Powell.

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar.

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
