One reason to live and work in Manwatu
Reasons to live, work and play in Manawatu
This category is simple to explain. We all made choices to live, work and play in Manawatu and often we forget why that is.
We thought we can share some of those reason with you here on our site and when we see something we might even take a snap and put it on our Pinterest Page
There are great people in the Manawatu - one more reason to live, work and play in the Manawatu
Palmerston North Personnel got behind the 2014 Pink Ribbon Breakfast to raise money for the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation.
WOW - we have been blown away by how supportive the Manawatu business community has been. Plumbing World really got behind the cause as the biggest indivual donor - they won an amazing Pink Ribbon Cake. Read on to find out more...
Be Warned - The 2015 regional growth study is a significant body of information and is not a 2 minute read
After receiving an update from the good folks at Vision Manawatu I have taken the time to skim read a couple of areas of interest in the report.

The NZ Herald reports a southerrn migration - why?
The NZ Herald reports that a Brain Drain is starting in Auckland. In essence talented, knowledgeable people are moving out of Auckland and into the regions.
Why? And are there positives?
Is your recruitment genuinely social?
We often speak to people from outside of Manawatu - this interests them
When choosing where to live, work, play or even invest, a little bit of research goes a long way. We are very lucky that our Central Economic Development Agency (CEDA) coordinate and share some of this for the region's benefit.
Here is something that really shows why people are escaping expensive metro locations (like Auckland and Tauranga) to move to Manawatu.
