The first Breakfast session in 2003 will be held on Thursday May 15th at 7.30am . A late start for this important new series - there is a lot of ground to cover so don't delay!

Following on from the very successful breakfast series in 2002 focusing on the Unwired World this year the series will continue for a fifth year and the topic is remote collaboration - one that, through necessity, will increasingly touch many New Zealand organisations.

Running from May to December this year, this series will explore new technologies for communicating across town, across the country and across the globe; investigate our needs and desire as a nation to collaborate; and present a showcase of technology and technology leaders to demonstrate remote collaboration tools with participants from outside of Wellington.

The first Breakfast in May will begin with an overview of the topic, a simple demonstration of existing tools and technologies with participants from other NZ centres and introduce some of the research and development activity underway in this area.

Every month, a new remote collaboration technology will be explored by leading thinkers to lift audience understanding of this technology and encourage debate by looking at how technology can be influenced by the activities of the academic, creative, government, and business sectors. Following each presentation, participants are invited to pose questions, discuss issues and develop ideas that will contribute to the vibrancy and innovation of New Zealand. Full details on the first session will be circulated on 2 July

Dates 15 May and thereafter the 3rd Thursday of the month. Diary these dates NOW!

This series has been generously supported by Positively Wellington Business and the Ministry for Economic Development
