YiA Innovation Forum

Each year Priority One’s Instep programme partners with local innovative businesses to host an innovation forum in conjunction with the annual Young Innovator Awards.  The 2017 YiA Innovation was held on 10 August and featured a stellar line-up of guest speakers, including ex-NASA aerospace engineer and current Silicon Valley CEO, Sinead O’Sullivan; Nike’s innovation developer and ex Tauranga Boys’ College student, Wade Flanagan;  and brand innovation guru and managing director of TBWA Group, Catherine Harris.  This event was delivered in a partnership with Woods Brand Agency and was part of the Groundswell Festival of Innovation.  Work is now underway to deliver some exciting speakers for the YiA Innovation Forum, which is being held on 30 August 2018.
