Cambridge New Zealand – TrustPower road show

TrustPower @ Red Cherry

The lads from TrustPower; Graig Neustroski National Sales Manager and Graeme Purches Community Relations Manager speak to members of Cambridge Chamber of Commerce this evening, Wednesday the 30th of June 2010, at Red Cherry Cafe. Their subject; New Zealand’s power supply industry and TrustPower’s place in it. A wide ranging presentation – PowerPoint and all – current, historic and projected power requirements. Planning, strategy and logistics for future generation requirements. Expectations, obligations and frustrations under current regulation. TrustPower investment policy and strategies / positioning in the commercial and domestic power supply market. Not forgetting research, community v corporate philosophies (hearts and minds stuff) – and the big picture where do we go from here? questions. Along with one or two bits and bobs I didn’t quite grasp.

Heady stuff – whew!

Part feel good, part advocacy, part PR and part too much information – robustly entertaining none the less. Oh, and a disclosure; I am a happy TrustPower customer also using TrustPower telecoms division Kinect (BTW excellent and personable tech. support).

Cambridge New Zealand – St Peter’s School v Cambridge High

St Peter's School 1st XV v Cambridge High 1st VX

A large local event – with an excellent gala feel – televised live across the country. Just a pity the teams are so mismatched – the combined weight of the St Peter’s pack being considerably greater than that of ‘visitors’ Cambridge High. I was looking forward to photographing this but suffered battery failure – an experience so rare for me I don’t recall it having occurred before – on-the-job that is – I have invested in a backup.
