Over 200 business people attended, with the event further enhancing our market position as leaders in the field of IP protection with the New Zealand business community.
The event was preceded by a special pre-event cocktail function, with guest speaker Josef Roberts in attendance, and around 25 guests. The cocktail function which was hosted by Baldwins included partners from the Auckland and Wellington offices as well as our CEO, our co-partners and their distinguished guests.
At the formal part of the evening Josef Roberts gave an inspirational address on his personal journey to success, setting up Red Bull in New Zealand from initial concept to the household name it is today, and his future plans to take one of his latest ventures - the Burger Fuel brand - global. He spoke strongly about the importance of IP and protecting a brand, providing some high value exposure for our firm.
The next event innovation series event will be held on 17th July. Details of the event will be available as soon as they are formalised.
