    The Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is backing diversity and youth with the People’s Choice-Labour Local Government campaign, People’s Choice chair Keir Leslie said today.

    Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern today released a short video backing the People’s Choice-Labour local government campaign. The Prime Minister highlighted the fact that the Christchurch People’s Choice Labour campaign involves two under 30 candidates standing for Christchurch City Council seats. Jake Mclellan (27) is standing for the Christchurch central seat while Zahra Hussaini (28) is standing for the Waimari Council seat.

    “The People’s Choice-Labour campaign not only has a wide range of candidates from diverse backgrounds but is also backing younger candidates,” said Mr Leslie.

    “We have two candidates under 30 standing for winnable city council seats.

    “Jake McLellan has already served three years on a community board and brings a passion for local Government and a desire to tackle the big issues such as climate change, social inequity and water issues.

    “Zahra Hussaini is another great candidate. Ms Hussaini is a Muslim, a Farsi interpreter, and has a huge interest in tackling ecological and climate change issues.

    “Ms Hussaini is both committed to bringing Christchurch’s diverse communities together to facilitate positive change and also looking at ways to future proof our city for the challenges faced by a changing climate.

    “We believe that The People’s Choice and Labour 2019 Local Government campaign is the most -diverse and inclusive local body campaign in New Zealand history,” Mr Leslie said.

    “Gathered in the heart of Christchurch on the last day of August are candidates that represent many different faiths and ethnic backgrounds but with one common purpose. That purpose is bringing Christchurch together.

    “Our candidates are committed to working together for the good of the people of Christchurch. O ur priorities are clean water, tackling climate change and keeping the city’s assets in public ownership.”

TUANZ to host symposium looking at the future of TV and media in this converging world

  • : TUANZ
  • : 01/08/2019
  • TUANZ, the association for users of digital technology and connectivity, is inviting anyone interested in hearing about the future of TV and media to the 2019 Digital Convergence Symposium on Tuesday 6 August.

    TUANZ CEO, Craig Young says that the theme of this year’s event reflects the fast-changing nature of media and how users access content in 2019.

    “The biggest talking point at the moment is how viewers will watch this year’s various world cups including Rugby, and how the continued convergence of communications and broadcasting will play out after October this year,” says Young.

    Attendees will hear from several industry leaders including Carolyn Luey, Consumer Director at Vodafone, Michael Boggs, CEO of NZME and Kevin Kenrick, CEO of TVNZ. Representatives from Spark and Sky TV will also present their views during the afternoon.

    New in 2019, the TUANZ Digital Convergence Symposium aims to help users make sense of the digital future where there is an increasing convergence of digital technologies. This convergence reached a tipping point in 2018 in relation to the use of broadband to deliver content to users from broadcasters and companies alike.

    Those interested in attending can view the full programme and register for the event by going to the Events page on the TUANZ website.

NewzEngine makes public relations support accessible and affordable for all

  • : NewzEngine.com
  • : 03/07/2019
  • NewzEngine.com, an online service that enables companies, organisations and individuals to write and distribute media releases, has been launched today.

     

    The subscriber-based service provides an easy way for NewzEngine’s customers to create regular, cost-effective, and professional communications about their activities, products and services.

     

    Media releases are created through NewzEngine’s platform, then quality-checked by experienced editors, distributed to a network of journalists/editors, and listed by global information aggregators.

     

    NewzEngine is created by Newztec Developments Ltd directors Selwyn Manning and Sarah Putt, who between them have over 40 years media and communications’ experience. Manning’s career includes roles as a journalist, editor, New Zealand Government press secretary, and news media specialist. Putt has worked as a journalist, public relations specialist and technology commentator.

     

    Manning says: “Organisations and companies require a public profile to grow. Their voice is a valuable complement to the national debate. But reliable media relations support is often expensive and beyond the reach of many.”

     

    We have launched NewzEngine to help organisations pitch their news to targeted media, and, through syndication and aggregation, supercharge their message so it can reach an audience wider than they thought possible.”

     

    To ensure their message reaches the desired audience, subscribers can select the geographical location and/or sector where they want their media announcement to be delivered within New Zealand.

     

    NewzEngine’s online service includes a guide to writing media announcements, as well as media release templates. This ensures subscribers can create an effective and professional release. In addition to text-based releases, NewzEngine provides the ability for subscribers to upload photographs and video links to accompany their message.

     

    Putt says: “Effective announcements are short, sharp and compelling. Our guide is designed to help subscribers inform professional media practitioners about their organisation’s new product, service, event or milestone achievement.”

     

    But when required, NewzEngine also provides a writing and media relations service,” Putt says.

     

    Organisations can subscribe to NewzEngine as a monthly or annual service, starting from $70 per month. For more details, visit NewzEngine.com.
