Christchurch Cathedral Square in November 2013

Nov 23, 2013

I’ve just got back from a walk around Christchurch CBD. I was inspired to visit again after I attended a marketing course at the Rendezvous Hotel – a modern and fresh looking building surrounded by rubble and flat gravel areas.

How to track scans on a QR Code

May 7, 2013

Ok lots of people – marketing professionals and digital specialists included – will mock me for talking about QR Codes. QR Codes are something that it’s just easy to hate.

My wife and I bought a house not long before the first quake. As home owners, we could really have suffered...

A Post-Earthquake Update on Bexley

A Post-Earthquake Update on Bexley

Jan 26, 2013

As far as residences are concerned, there’s no doubt that the suburb of Bexley in Christchurch was the worst hit during the 2011 earthquake. As an eastern-suburb resident myself, it seems easy to consider our street amongst the worst hit and yet a journey a few hundred metres down the road tells a different story. Today I took a drive around the...
