On 11 June 2014 the TalentNZ Menu of Initiatives publication and website were launched at a public event in Wellington. Over 100 people (including MPs, mayors and councillors) attended this event. Speakers included Sam Morgan (who launched the Menu), and the contributors to the 2013 TalentNZ Journal who each spoke for five minutes about one of the Menu’s 28 initiatives. Janice Feutz, whose video is featured below, spoke about using the talents we have – the first initiative in the Retain category of the Menu.

Janice Feutz is the corporate manager of CORE Technology, a Wellington company that is revolutionising the software industry. She began her career as a teacher, and went on to establish an education business in Xiamen, China. Janice provides the perspective of a New Zealander whose career is always evolving.
