OUR PLACE TO SHINE - RECREATING TAURANGA AS A MAGNET CITY

At Priority One’s 2015 Annual General Meeting, five successful, talented, high achievers spoke about why Tauranga resonated to them as a place to live and to build their careers and businesses – why Tauranga is their ‘place to shine’.  

The relevance of this was in the context of a global trend highlighted in a report by a leading Canadian economic development consultancy, that young people are no longer tied geographically to a community or a region.  Research shows that recent graduates will choose a community first, then find a career.  In turn, companies are following talent rather than vice versa.   Businesses are starting-up and locating in communities that have a resident pool of creative, talented, educated workers where the amenities and lifestyles sought by their employees are on offer.
