How Did The Metservice Win That Contract With The BBC?

One of Wellington's best export sucess stories in recent years has been the Metservice. One of their most important contracts offshore is with the BBC. How did they manage to win the contract with the BBC? Close to 50 of the capital's business elite attended a function last night to hear the BBC side of the story. Andrew Land, Manager of the BBC Weather Centre gave an excellent and very frank talk at the final Export Wellington seminar for the year at the Wellington Regional Chamber of Commerce. We understand that Andrew has agreed to share his speech notes and a summary of these these has been posted on the Chamber website sometime next week. Rather than summarising the talk here we recommend you read his speech when it is posted. By the way, the Chamber's meeting rooms must be the best in town.
