Dropping the east v west parochialism and instead working together appears to be a positive outcome from the chaos caused by Coromandel Peninsula’s weather events.
As the commercial wheels of the Coromandel Peninsula continue the battle to keep turning, work is going on behind the scenes to assist.
And this work has seen interesting shifts – for instance the organisations working in this space have dropped the east versus west parochialism, and there is clear evidence of communities working together appreciating the mantra of strength in numbers.
CFM has spoken with Thames Business Association head Sue Lewis-O’Halloran on the shift from working in isolation to the collective approach.
She said there had been a tendency for organisations to work isolation rather than collectively.
We highlighted the recent Lucky Loop promotion, which while significantly raising the awareness of the Coromandel Peninsula being open for business, most businesspeople only found out about it when reading the likes of the Stuff website.
Sue said positive responses were now evident across the likes of council and other organisations.
She makes reference to the need of hunting as a pack in the bid to achieve the much-needed support from the likes of Government to keep business on a survival and recovery path.
