City with a vi­brant heart

The Press - - Advertising Feature - Lianne Dalziel

This year, I write not only as the Mayor of Christchurch, but also as the chair of the Can­ter­bury May­oral Fo­rum, so I am very much a cham­pion of both the city and the re­gion.

The Cham­pion Can­ter­bury Busi­ness Awards recog­nise and cel­e­brate the ex­cel­lence, in­no­va­tion, and suc­cess of busi­nesses and not­for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions in the Can­ter­bury re­gion.

Can­ter­bury is a re­gional pow­er­house with a vi­brant city heart. Our pi­o­neer­ing mind­set, as ev­i­denced by the fi­nal­ists in the awards, is part of who we are. We have a col­lec­tive iden­tity like no other re­gion. As a city and as a re­gion, we as­pire to be not only the best place to start and grow a fam­ily, but also the best place for busi­nesses to start and grow so that they can then take on the world.

On be­half of the city of Christchurch and the May­ors of the re­gion, con­grat­u­la­tions to all en­trants, fi­nal­ists and win­ners of the Cham­pion Can­ter­bury Busi­ness Awards 2017.

Your suc­cess is our suc­cess. Lianne Dalziel is the mayor of Christchurch ❚

Our pi­o­neer­ing mind­set, as ev­i­denced by the fi­nal­ists in the awards, is part of who we are.
