An invitation to a University of Auckland Bioscience Enterprise Friday Forum, sponsored by NZTE

Date: Friday 9th December 2011
Time: Presentation – 4.30pm. Followed by drinks and nibbles
Venue: Reception Lounge, Main entrance of Thomas Building, 3 Symonds Street.
Speaker: Phil O’Reilly’s, Chief Executive of BusinessNZ
Title: Celebrating ‘Belgium’ (?!?....)

The last Bioscience Enterprise forum for 2011 is not to be missed. We will be celebrating.

We will be celebrating Phil O’Reilly’s vision of an economically vibrant New Zealand. From his position as Chief Executive of BusinessNZ, Phil’s stimulating presentation will look at what is needed to take the results of NZ's innovative skills into the global market.

We will be celebrating the 5th birthday of the MBioEnt qualification and the success of its ‘bilingual’ graduates in creating a bridge between the worlds of science and business.

We will be celebrating the successful completion of this year’s MBE theses as the 2011 interns now prepare to make their mark in the bioscience ecosystem.

We will be celebrating – and acknowledging – the wonderful support the programme has enjoyed from so many people across the bioindustry.

We will celebrate the end of the formalities with the eagerly anticipated, if somewhat inexpert, sabre champagne.

We would love you to join us to mark this occasion - and to debate how successfully the MBioEnt programme has contributed to Phil O’Reilly’s ‘Belgium’.
