More Top Spot high per­form­ers

New Zealand Logger - - Top Spot -

A RE­CENT EX­PE­RI­ENCE HIGH­LIGHTED TO me the need for peo­ple to speak out on is­sues they feel un­com­fort­able about.

In this ex­am­ple, it was a bit like Chi­nese whis­pers in that by the time the mes­sage got passed along through sev­eral peo­ple, it wasn’t as ac­cu­rate as it should have been re­sult­ing in good in­ten­tions cre­at­ing other po­ten­tial prob­lems.

It was re­solved but it was a les­son learned and well worth re­mem­ber­ing – deal with an is­sue di­rectly when it arises to en­sure it is real and ac­cu­rate, es­pe­cially when safety is in­volved.

To round off the Oc­to­ber edi­tion of Top Spot, here are more pho­tos of our top achiev­ers from the sec­ond pe­riod. Their suc­cess con­tin­ues to high­light the skills and pro­fes­sion­al­ism of peo­ple within out in­dus­try.

Spon­sors – They don’t have to do this but they choose to!

Awe­some com­pa­nies, awe­some peo­ple Awe­some com­pa­nies, awe­some peo­ple and awe­some sup­port!

They back you and your work­mates to suc­ceed as pro­fes­sion­als, so why wouldn’t you sup­port them.

They be­lieve in what we do and what you do.

So a big on­go­ing thank you to our Strate­gic Part­ners – STIHL and NZ Log­ger and spon­sor SWAZI.

The best way to keep our in­dus­try work­ing is to get out and sup­port those busi­nesses that sup­port New Zealand.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing Com­pa­nies

This com­pe­ti­tion wouldn’t be what it is with­out our par­tic­i­pat­ing com­pa­nies.

We un­der­stand the com­mit­ment it takes from them to be part of Top Spot and value their on­go­ing sup­port and feed­back.
