Elise Niu knew she was on to something when she created Functional HIIT on the Coast - and so did others. She was quickly picked up on Maori TV to star on the reality TV show School of Training. Elise knew this would have to act fast on this opportunity and engaged D&T to create a brand, website and strategy for the year, to achieve her goal of inspiring as many people as possible into a life of health & fitness. You can find out more about Elise via her website www.eliseniu.com

MAKING MAINSTREAM NEWS, TO SAVE kAPITI AIR SERVICES

Shaping the news agenda is what we do best. The Kapiti Coast Chamber of Commerce is one of the leading voices in the work to save the daily flight link between Kapiti and Auckland, following the news that Air New Zealand will cut its flights from 3 April 2018. Here are the Co-Chairs discussing with One News in Parliament why local businesses would welcome another airline to the region, and why the flights to Auckland are so important for economic growth.

We've equipped the Co-Chairs with media training and provided strategic advice to be the voice of local business on this important issue. To find out more about the Kapiti Coast Chamber of Commerce, visit their website here: www.kapitichamber.org
