Message from Greg

Hi, it’s been an exciting start to the year! Below we have got a couple of new case studies for you to enjoy, Antarctic NZ asked us to develop a portable shelter on skis and Klima and Vestner have new great stories to tell as well.

I’m presenting “Better by Analysis®” and Daniel Paris is presenting “Delivering Product Benefits through Continuous Validation” at SouthMACH 2019.

And this year we’ve asked Brush Technology, Ara Institute, the Ministry of Awesome and Fabriko to join us on our stand. We’ll be talking all about path to market at the Entrepreneur’s Development Hub, stand 110. Also, on the “Product Development Centre” at stand 145, we will be partnering with Brush technology to help you with all your product development needs!

Leon Daly has decided to take the plunge down south so Stuart Jackson has taken over admirably as Motovated’s new GM. Finally we’re celebrating 20 Years of Motovated, with more to come. Please enjoy the read below!

Regards,
Greg Morehouse
CEO

Many of you know my back story, that my wife had always said I was a tough employee, always thinking engineering could be done better. When we had the opportunity to adopt a wonderful wee lad, my boss wouldn’t give me the time off, so we chose to put our pay check where my mouth was!

#Stress Buster

Daniela, a Grade 8 student from California wrote this wonderful poem on her dream to be an engineer. Let’s give some appreciation for this future engineer!

Engineer

“I wanna be an engineer so flippin’ bad”

I’d learn all the math I’d never had

I wanna be on the cover of Science magazine

Standing next to Einstein, that’s my dream

And every time I close my eyes, they’re handing me the Nobel Prize
