Online publishing entrepreneur Rhonda Kite has been appointed deputy Chair of the Small Business Development group (SBDG) tasked with providing a relevant business perspective to the government, representing small & medium businesses (SME) to inform policy reform and development.
In his statement, Mr Banks, said “The Small Business Development Group which replaces the previous Small Business Advisory Group, provides the Government with a critical perspective that we cannot get from policy or academia. The new group will have an increased focus on identifying administrative and regulatory barriers to SME growth. Strong networks and knowledge of the realities facing the small and medium enterprises (SME) sector were the most important qualities we were looking for.”
Rhonda will support entrepreneur and investor Tenby Powell who has been appointed Convener. Tenby is the husband and business partner of serial entrepreneur, Sharon Hunter, inducted recently into the New Zealand Hall of Fame for Women Entrepreneurs.
Rhonda who is also a member of Co.OfWomen’s board said “I am thrilled to be appointed to this group. It certainly is going to be an exciting time and I look forward, in particular, to hearing from our Co.OfWomen members, about their thoughts on what they would like to see bought to the Governments attention regarding SME’s”.
