Each year Instep collaborates with ExportNZ Bay of Plenty to facilitate a unique opportunity for 150 Tauranga and Western Bay of Plenty secondary school students and teachers to attend three breakfasts to network and be inspired about potential career opportunities working within the export sector, as well as provide the opportunity to network with our local exporters.

At the first breakfast for 2017, three speakers - Karl Stevenson, Global Marketing Manager at Trimax Mowers, Judy Finn, chair of New Zealand's Family of Twelve, and Anne Guenther, co-founder and CEO at Pledge Me - shared their inspirational and informative stories on how they collaborated with others to achieve success for their respective businesses.

Papamoa College student, Josh Marshman said he was grateful that he had been offered the opportunity to attend the breakfast. As well as finding it inspirational Josh had enjoyed hearing the speakers' individual stories. "Their stories and advice gave me a lot to think about on how I could incorporate this into my my own thinking". 

Instep thanks Beca, BNZ Partners, Page Macrae Engineering, Instep (Priority One) and Southern Produce for sponsoring students to attend this event.
