A large group turned up to the staff tours of Ko Awatea on Monday 18 April.
It was wonderful to see such a large turn-out during the staff tours of Ko Awatea and to hear your positive feedback. People were impressed with the large, open and modern spaces, with many itching to try out the new technology such as wireless internet access and the interactive whiteboards! Others were already planning how they would use some of the spaces for running conferences and symposia.
The coffee bar and the standard of the coffee was also a subject of heated discussion! On a personal note it was great to see the level of interest in Ko Awatea and feel the energy as people walked around the Centre. I hope you left Ko Awatea feeling more informed and perhaps inspired.
The good news is that we will be inviting staff back on 13 June when Ko Awatea will be up and running. That means from the 13th you can start using some of the great spaces available and yes the coffee bar will be open.
