But for one loc­al entre­pren­eur, the magic of cre­at­ing a unique concept for a site and see­ing it through is very much alive and well. James Mack­ie of Mack­it is a bit […]

When Donna Wil­li­ams met expert heli­copter pilot Den­nis Young she was scared of heights. Think­ing this dis­par­ity meant their rela­tion­ship might nev­er get off the ground, lit­er­ally or oth­er­wise, she con­fron­ted her ver­tigo and flew with him. “Before that flight I wouldn’t have even got up on a gar­age roof,” she says.

Orchestra Wellington

  “There are very few live music­al exper­i­ences like a full orches­tra,” says Adán E. Tijer­ina, gen­er­al man­ager of Orches­tra Wel­ling­ton, the longest-run­­n­ing city-based orches­tra in New Zea­l­and.
