West Coast Visit Days 2 and 3

Day Two took Dame Patsy to Greymouth to Westland Workgear, a clothing supplier using innovation to sell their goods and services to the rest of New Zealand. Dame Patsy heard about the challenges of selling nationally from a West Coast base and also about how the team had found solutions to those problems, increasing sales and profitability.
