About the Presenter:

James Richardson is Caliber Design’s Auckland Regional Manager:
“I started my first business during the final year of study for a degree in Mechanical Engineering. After graduating, I made the leap to work on the business full-time. I went on to sell that business, and that experience sparked a passion for business that I suspect will last my entire career.
In my role at Caliber Design, I'm lucky to be exposed to the inner-workings of companies in every corner of New Zealand's engineering industry - from small family-owned jobbing shops through to local heavyweights like Rocket Lab, Lion Breweries, and Fletcher Steel.
I'm also surrounded by some of the smartest and most motivated engineers I've ever met, which in turn fuels my growth, and makes me a better manager.
