In this issue we share an interview with Farm Cove Intermediate School principal, Linda Harvie, discussing how to retain talent, and the work of the World Economic Forum and Infosys around the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

We provide an update of our work in the next two months, sharing an invite to the Going Places book launch on 17 March 2016,  a review of Margaret MacDonald’s book, Elwyn Richardson and the early world of creative education in New Zealand, and our upcoming TacklingPovertyNZ Queenstown workshop. We also discuss the December 2015 TacklingPovertyNZ workshop.
