AUT's Vice Chancellor Derek McCormack says that Handley's "contribution to business and innovation is inspirational and his insights will be invaluable to [AUT] students' thinking about enterprises or working in business."
As executive professor, Handley will work with Dr Geoff Perry, Dean of AUT's Business School. He will make a public address today (June 4) at 1pm in the new Sir Paul Reeves building at AUT. At the event Derek will be talking about his successes and failures while beginning and building multiple international start-ups, highlighting techniques for making life goals a reality.
