PM meets SEG Managing Director

New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has done the 'Covid-19 elbow tap' with SEG Managing Director Richard Saunders during her recent visit to Tauranga.

Ardern visited The Kollective on September 8, 2020 as part of her campaign tour where she spent a couple of hours meeting local business operators and discussed a wide range of social issues and Labour's policies.

SEG Managing Director Richard Saunders spoke with Ardern, who said investing in Education infrastructure was one of Labour's key priorities.

She was impressed to hear of SEG's invovlement in upgrading school facilities in the Bay of Plenty and beyond.

"You'll be appreciating the funding [the Government] has invested in Education," Ardern told Mr Saunders, who replied: "There's still a lot of work to be done".

SEG have worked on various projects led by the Ministry of Education, including new infrastructure and building upgrades at Papamoa Primary School, Bethlehem School, Tauranga Special School, Otumoetai Primary School and Taupo-nui-a-Tia College in Taupo, to name a few.

SEG is proud to be a commercial business operating within The Kollective, New Zealand's largest innovative multi-functional co-working space that is dedicated to the success of not for profit, social enterprise and charitable organisations.  

Ardern said she was admiring of the concept of The Kollective and efficiency of co-working spaces.
