Kea announces Kea Unlimited: the new digital magazine for expats
Kea and Unlimited Magazine have partnered to produce a new digital magazine, Kea Unlimited.
A first of its kind, Kea Unlimited will showcase New Zealand’s best business, innovation and creative stories tailored for New Zealand’s global citizens.
Now available online, the first issue of Kea Unlimited is free, and a new issue will be published every two months.
Kea’s Global CEO Dr Sue Watson says the partnership aims to reach and inspire New Zealand’s booming diaspora, and is one of many initiatives Kea is undertaking to strengthen the connection between expatriates and New Zealand.
“Unlimited know all about Kiwis who take good ideas and turn them into great companies. Kea Unlimited will be the leading digital destination for expat relevant news, features and global thinking. We will tell the stories of some of New Zealand’s best and brightest minds who live overseas. Both Kea and Unlimited thrive on inspiring New Zealand to prosper in the global economy through better sharing of ideas and expertise.”
Unlimited’s editor Caitlin Sykes says “This partnership with Kea is a fantastic opportunity for Unlimited to share inspiring stories of New Zealand businesses and business people with a whole new audience.”
The first issue of Kea Unlimited features interviews with successful Kea entrepreneurs based in New Zealand and abroad including Claudia Batten, Jonty Kelt, entrepreneur of the year Craig Heatley, Kiwi food moguls Sachie Nomura, Simon Eriksen and Al Brown along with more profiles, in depth articles and opinion pieces from some of New Zealand’s thought leaders.
This partnership is another step for Kea in executing its new digital strategy which aims to connect the one million New Zealanders offshore. Dr Watson says that connecting these New Zealanders with each other and improving their connection with their homeland can lead to a more innovative and influential New Zealand.
“New Zealand’s expat community hold a country’s worth of business and creative ideas. They have a country’s worth of intellectual property and experience learned in a global market. That vital connectedness could lift New Zealand’s performance substantially, and Kea works towards harnessing that every day.”
