In this issue we share an interview with Jess Segal (Cultural and leadership Advisor at Kiwibank) discussing how to retain talent and Think Piece 23: The Future of Talent: Reflections from the World Future Society Conference, written by former project manager Hannah Steiner-Mitchell who has left the institute and moving to Budapest.

We provide an update on the TalentNZ website, share some interesting resources that we’ve found while researching and showcase what others are doing to build a talent-based economy. We also discuss our recent TacklingPovertyNZ workshop.
