Couldn’t help but note this line in the media statement from Jason Paris, MediaWorks CEO about departure of Colin Caldwell, MediaWorks TV Director of Sales, leaving his role to set up an independent business consultancy.
“Colin has made a significant contribution to the commercial success of MediaWorks, over the last 18 years, and I thank him for both the long hours and long lunches he has contributed towards that success…
That resonates because my daughter has just landed a job in media in Auckland. When she asked the employer if they’d meet over coffee, the woman said, “No darling, this is Auckland, we do lunch..”
I suppose this all helps the Auckland economy and NZ wine industry but would it be approved by the Government’s newly minted Productivity Commission?
