During our recent ICT Conference we filmed a number of short interviews with ICT and business leaders from across the country, and from a range of industries.
The goal was to get their insights on how they are using ICT to achieve business outcomes, what technology changes they’re most excited about and how they think faster broadband will be great for New Zealand.
The interviews are being produced into a series of videos that we will release in the coming months and we’ve just released the first few.
The series is called “In The Front Room” – a name inspired by The Front Room, a meeting space at our head office at Telecom Place in Auckland. The room is designed as a place where people are invited in to share their ideas and opinions, and that’s just the spirit we’re trying to reproduce with these videos – we even filmed them on a portable The Front Room set!
Below is one of the first clips – and we’ll be sharing a new one here each Wednesday, so be sure to check back or, even better, subscribe to this blog so you don’t miss any.
In this video we sit down with Deidre Butler, group services manager of AJ Hackett Bungy New Zealand. This is a fascinating business – they pioneered commercial bungy jumping, and remain at the forefront of offering adventure-packed experiences to thrill seekers from across the world.
Deidre, who is based at the company’s Queenstown head office, talks about the technology that drives the photo and video products that are an essential part of any AJ Hackett adventure.
She sheds light on the challenges involved with offering a high-tech photo and video service at some of the most inaccessible places in the country and shares her views on how faster broadband can help New Zealand attract even more overseas visitors.
We hope you enjoy these videos and gain some insights into how others in ICT roles solve challenges unique to their business, as well as those that we all face.
