Changing the world: A video log of Kiwi innovation

When former Saatchi & Saatchi CEO (and Idealog columnist and boss) Mike Hutcheson interviewed former Saatchis colleague Kevin Roberts for his Master’s thesis, the Kiwi advertising export told him it wasn’t a coincidence that a country of four million people on the edge of the world was producing world-changing innovation.

Chief editor at Idealog, Nikki's a veteran in the journalism industry. A former lecturer at AUT University, she was the chief reporter at NZ weekly business publication The Independent and was deputy editor of Canadian publication Unlimited magazine.
