Saving Birds in the palm of your hand - The Squawk Squad Story

By Liam Bates | May 29, 2017 12:00:00 PM

When you think of conservation most people envisage bearded dudes in Swandri's and ruthless ladies rocking gumboots, trekking through the wilderness and living off beef jerky. The reality is this image has become outdated yet it hasn't stopped it from sticking with the culture and damaged people's perception of the good these people are really doing. With everything else in the world shifting to the social scene, it was about time conservation did the same and the incredible team at Squawk Squad have done that with a twist, they're giving the results to the palm of your hand. Its amazing to think that we could order a taxi with a click but not make an effort to save our native birds, but now its possible and it is poised to take off (no pun intended). We just had to have a chat with these incredible bird philanthropists and discuss their mission, motives and tips and tricks for the trade.

Moulding the next generation of financial geniuses - The Banqer story

I have mixed memories of school, but one that clearly stands out is I really had no option to learn any financial literacy or skills unless I purposefully chose it as an elective in my senior high school years. And being an energetic, restless teenage boy I instinctively chose P.E over any money based subjects and was restricted to very little financial education. Thankfully, my parents aren't clueless with their funds and taught me a lot but that's not true for a vast majority of children in this country, and this is where Banqer comes into the question. Bridging the huge gap left in students knowledge about anything to do with finances, Banqer provides an incredible platform that acts as an online bank, to teach youth how to manage savings, deal with interest rates and other potentially ‘overlooked' areas of everyday life that are left up to the parents. We had an incredible opportunity to chat with Kendall Flutey, co-founder of the start-up to discuss the ins and outs of this unique and exciting concept.

Transparency, Creativity and Comedy Festivals

By Brigitte Hicks | Apr 3, 2017 12:00:00 PM

 

 

 

The month of May was beginning, and with it the NZ Comedy Festival! Finally some world class, live entertainment every night of the week to choose from. What caught my eye initially wasn't the lineup of New Zealand’s greatest comedians, but the sponsor… Flick Electric. Who and what was that? An electricity company? The major sponsor of a comedy festival? Now that's a bit different.
