We have a lot of talented and innovative people, teams and organisations in New Zealand that deserve to be profiled and celebrated.

    So, to help inspire you on your own journey of growth through innovation in May 2014 we toured the country with four of our Innovation Heroes. These stories are great examples of innovation at work in New Zealand across a whole range of industries and business types.

    We heard their stories and challenges of life growing new businesses, developing new products and services, of organisational innovation and of nurturing great kiwi talent to feed our organisations for the future.

    They have some great stores to share with you that may provide insights into how you too can become one of New Zealand's top innovators and innovative organisations.
