TalentNZ: Join the TalentNZ Network
Patrick is the chief economist at Reform, a British think tank focused on public policy and economic prosperity. Before moving abroad in 2009, he worked for the New Zealand Treasury and as an economic advisor to a front-bench minister in the Labour government. Patrick is returning to New Zealand in early 2014 to work at the Productivity Commission.
The TalentNZ initiative builds on the thinking of Sir Paul Callaghan who envisioned New Zealand as ‘a place where talent wants to live’. Through our Sir Paul Callaghan Science Meets Humanities Scholarship two young scholarship recipients asked 30 Kiwis seven questions, resulting in 210 ideas. The project aims to further the concept of moving New Zealand towards a talent-based economy.
