Pattrick Smellie is co-founder of BusinessDesk and in this 180 degree interview reversal, Ryan gets to interview a journalist on how BusinessDesk got started, getting your business into the news, why post election every business will need a trusted source on news for policy impacts and how to get into becoming a news journalist.
In this wide ranging interview, we cover the belief BusinessDesk had when setting up, that traditional news publishers doing news for free wasn’t a path for BusinessDesk, how businesses can get in to the news (or stay out of the news!) and why it can be better to tell your story than keep it under wraps. Pattrick also shares why businesses wanting coverage should be willing to take risks, to say things that are real when talking with journalists and be prepared to invest in building relationships with journalists.
David Percy, Founder of Pertronic has been interested in technology and manufacturing for 4+ decades, turning his hobby into a substantial New Zealand business employed over 100 Kiwi’s. In this episode we discuss why David Percy does what he does, how the increased availability of electronic components has helped upgrade the display features of building fire protection systems and how fire prevention systems have improved.
The Pertronic team includes 157 people across New Zealand and Pertronic shares how they are competing for talent and their advantage of being based in Wellington to attract talent from the factory floor all the way up to the computer scientists.
Pertronic has recently invested in building bigger premises after the existing production building was bursting at the seams.
“It’s got to be bulletproof” according to David Percy. The importance of testing is at the heart of what Pertronic Fire Protection Systems is all about. “Everything is about testing, testing, testing. Essentialy it’s got to be bulletproof when it leaves here. With some other product if you read all sorts of R&D things, you’ll see ‘fail fast’ and so on and sometimes products are put out into the market where there are known bugs but essentially that’s not an option that’s available to us.”
