One of the main aims of Powering ON is to enable the Bay’s local businesses to really embrace digital technology. We’re passionate about seeing businesses succeed in the digital space and will do everything we can to help them do so. We recently heard Wendy Simister, owner of Wendy’s Boutique, speak about their digital journey and thought we’d ask her to share it with you, too.

What would you say if we told you that you could have 45 minutes with a lawyer, to ask anything at all you want to about business, without paying a cent? You’d probably jump at the chance, right? That’s exactly what local makeup artist Lillybeth Melmoth did…

Have you got a great product or service for small businesses? Is it scalable?

Do you just need a bit of help and support to make it spread across New Zealand?

Want the opportunity to get input from three of New Zealand’s best business brains?


PoweringON is the Business Owner focused initiative of the Digital Enablement Project pilot which aims to grow a prosperous region where everyone can access, participate and benefit from digital technologies.
