Enable And TUANZ to Develop Future Technology Leaders

Enable And TUANZ Partner to Develop Future Technology Leaders in Canterbury

Christchurch fibre broadband provider, Enable, is the inaugural foundation sponsor of the Christchurch chapter of FLINT, or Future Leaders in Technology, a national leadership programme run by TUANZ (Telecommunications Users Association of New Zealand) that provides networking development opportunities for the next generation of technology industry leaders.

After successful FLINT chapters in Auckland, Wellington and Hamilton, TUANZ CEO Craig Young is excited to launch in Christchurch this month.

“FLINT is a national programme with a local focus – each region has its own flavour and we work to establish regional leadership teams who can create their own events, initiatives and development opportunities that meet the needs of young technology professional in the region,” said Mr Young.

“Partnering with a local company that’s future-proofing the city’s technology infrastructure by delivering fibre broadband services to Christchurch is a natural fit. Enable have been generous to invest in these young people – it’s critically important for the future of our industry.

“We have tremendous talent in all pockets on New Zealand, the FLINT programme is bringing that out so New Zealand can continue to be dynamic and relevant at the forefront of the digital revolution now and in the future.”

Enable Chief Executive, Steve Fuller, is looking forward to supporting FLINT and the benefits it will have on the technology industry in Christchurch.

“Our vision for Christchurch is for it to be a connected, innovative, and globally competitive city,” said Mr Fuller.

“Our world-class fibre services play a key role in realising this vision. Helping innovative and smart minds working in our city to unlock new economic and social opportunities is absolutely an essential part also and we are proud to be involved. We need to ensure we make Christchurch a place where this talent can flourish and achieve amazing things.”

The Christchurch chapter of FLINT will be launched on 21 February at Dux Central. Membership is open to individuals under 35 who are employed by TUANZ members or are involved in the technology space. Membership is free as is entry to events, simply visit https://tuanz.org.nz/future-leaders/ to join the local chapter.
