Chris Pickrill believes that if we are going to get back into the top half of the OECD, we are going to need to do it collectively. Drawing a lot of parallels to Scotland – who have recently adopted a four city model with each city being a “pillar of leadership growth in that country” – Pickrill puts forward the argument that Christchurch (not just Auckland!) is also an internationally competitive city.


Chris Pickrill is a trustee of the Sustainable Initiatives Fund Trust, which aims to support projects that will contribute to establishing, managing and stimulating the sustainable development of Canterbury businesses, with a focus on waste minimization and diversion. Chris was also the CEO of the Canterbury Development Corporation for twelve years and has been heavily involved in a number of economic development and innovation initiatives at both a regional and national level.
