DAVID WILSON - BUILDING AN ENTERPRISING COMMUNITY THROUGH FARMERS MARKETS – UNLIMITED POTENTIAL FOR EVERY TOWN



David Wilson Key Messages

In times of change it is the learners who inherit the future. “

 

“Every single person has capacities, abilities and gifts”

 

“The Purpose of a business is to find and keep customers”

 

“Find out what your customers want and give it to them”

 Success starts with healthy Communities….. places where the capacities of all residents are identified valued and harnessed and this was the key message from David Wilson for all Hamilton Workshop attendees.  A good representation from Hamilton and Cambridge markets proved that successful management is the key to running multiple Farmers’ Markets.

WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY AND MARKET LIFE THAT CANNOT BE LOST?

WHAT DO WE NEED TO GET RID OF FROM OUR COMMUNITY MARKET?

WHAT NEEDS MODIFYING OR REORGANISING IN TERM OF OUR COMMUNITY AND MARKET LIFE?

These questions were all raised and answered with enthusiasm  as the room worked together to strategise what needs to happen in the Hamilton and Bay of Plenty region.   We all discovered that   Great communities don’t just happen! – They are created, nurtured and sustained by caring, connected and involved residents
