Heather Johnston Receives the Tauranga Chamber of Commerce Business Scholarship!
"I am truly grateful and appreciative that the Tauranga Chamber of Commerce selected me as the recipient of the Tauranga Chamber of Commerce Business Scholarship. The Tauranga Chamber of Commerce provides valuable support to professionals who are enhancing their careers by increasing their management knowledge and expertise.
This ultimately strengthens business capability within the Bay. I have worked within the health and safety arena for the last 18 years, in a variety of industries. The environment within which health and safety operates is rapidly changing, and is now recognised as a key business tool.
This prompted my decision to undertake further learning to build upon my technical knowledge and broaden my general management skills.
In my role as Global Health and Safety Manager with Comvita New Zealand, I am increasingly involved in management and business discussions. The Postgraduate Diploma in Management Studies from the University of Waikato will expand upon my existing skills and increase my general business knowledge in a way that can be practicably applied in real time.
Receiving this scholarship will assist me in pursuing my educational and career ambitions and I thank the Tauranga Chamber of Commerce for their support."
