Connecting with South Taranaki business

Members of South Taranaki’s business community came together at WITT’s Hāwera campus last night for the first ‘Business to Business After Five’ event for the year.

‘Business to Business After Five’ is a series of networking functions run by Bizlink Hāwera, events designed to connect members of the business community, industry representatives, members of the local council.

Addressing the group of around 50 members and guests, WITT Deputy Chief Executive Linda Weterman talked about WITT’s place in Taranaki and purpose in the community.

“We are here to build and support the workforce that Taranaki needs, and that includes our community in South Taranaki,” she said.

“WITT is here for our learners, but also to serve you and your organisations - local businesses and industry. That could mean delivering professional development for your staff, delivering hands-on and relevant training, or providing online options to upskill your people.”

Linda also introduced the study options available at WITT’s Hāwera campus this year, which include Te Reo Māori and Māori Governance as part-time programmes, Stand-alone and online business courses, and popular certificate level programmes like the New Zealand Certificate in Food & Beverage Service.

“From full-time study to something flexible that fits around your work or whānau commitments, we have options to suit,” she said.

Venture Taranaki also attended the event as speakers.
