I established Into The Blue NZ Limited in 1997 as my inclination is to work in and with the business to understand its processes, culture and how it arrived at its current destination in order to develop strategies, business plans and new or improved processes to drive the business forward.

I can assist with keeping abreast of the changing economic / business environment i.e. the effects of low unemployment and skill shortages and how it affects the traditional employee / subcontractor model.
