NZTE – At Your Service

You may have noticed the odd change or two taking place within/between / around the government departments and organisations that have traditionally supported the bioscience industry? New Zealand Trade & Enterprise has not been spared from these events and is now operating under quite a new ‘look’. The industry sectors are gone and companies now have the opportunity to engage under programmes and projects. We thought it would be timely to become better aquainted with the possibilities.

Our guest speaker, Hans Frauenlob, is NZTE’s General Manager, Products and Services. In this role he leads the design and delivery of the Beachheads Programme which many of you will be familiar with. You may not be so familiar with two other programmes that NZTE have identified as being strategically important to building industry capability that Hans also leads – Better By Design and Lean Business.

Hans’ presentation will look at how NZTE delivers the current government policy and NZTE’s relationship with the newly formed MoBIE and ATI. As well as the programmes he leads,Hans will also consider other services offered one-on-one to companies such research into market intelligence. He will also describe the significance of the eight High Impact programmes such as Health, Agribusiness and China and how they support the life science industry.

You are warmly invited to take the opportunity to join us and learn more about how to access NZTE’s products and services from General Manager Hans Frauenlob.

All welcome. RSVPs to Margot Bethell for organizational purposes would be greatly appreciated. Please email or phone (09) 923 9625 or 0274 305 758.
