There are many good reasons to be optimistic about the future – with emerging innovations in science and technology already having a profoundly positive impact on society. Vodafone’s focus now is really about ensuring all our customers are ready to step forward with us and make the most of what is coming. Technology is changing the way people connect, and that is exciting, but there is also a lot of uncertainty about what technology will change in the future. Vodafone’s partnership with TEDxAuckland is the embodiment of our shared values in trying to make the world a better place. To embrace new ideas in science, technology, education, design and culture. Vodafone’s DreamLab is one such example where ideas are pushing new frontiers. Vodafone’s partnership with us signals a commitment to ideas, a harnessing of new thinking that shapes our future.

We are big on collaboration and community here at BizDojo, in-fact it is at the very core of what we do creating co-working spaces and communities across New Zealand. We started out with a belief that working together, and learning from one another unlocks opportunity far beyond what we can do as individuals; so it was a natural choice for us to partner with TEDxAuckland who embody this in all that they do. Their transformative, inspirational events super-charge the power of bringing people together, and we are glad that the BizDojo team and residents are part of it!
