One to Watch is a collection of interviews with young Kiwis, living in New Zealand and around the globe, who are doing something that we think is pretty interesting.
Emily and Kate have not lived in the same country for about nine years. That’s pretty hard going for sisters who grew up in bedrooms next door to each other. So, whenever we get a chance to catch up, we find ourselves chatting about people from home and the many and varied pursuits of our clever, ambitious and inspiring friends.
On a plane ride together from Sydney to Auckland, we were chatting and decided we wanted to know about more inspiring people. Not necessarily Olympic athletes, Nobel Prize winners or Fortune 500 company owners. Just everyday people who are doing some pretty interesting things. And this is what lead us to create Ones to Watch.
From creative talents, sporting pursuits, start up businesses and the rest, we are definitely getting our fix of inspiration from our interviews with some pretty clever Kiwis. We hope you enjoy reading their stories and get inspired too!
