Wil co-founded EPIC (Enterprise Precinct and Innovation Campus) a unique building which houses many start-ups and tech companies in central Christchurch.  As one of the first buildings to go up following the earthquakes there is an amazing story behind the building which we discover in this interview.  Wil also shares his background growing up in the UK and how he ended up in New Zealand.  We also discuss what makes a good salesperson, key elements that make up a great team and what it takes to succeed as an entrepreneur.

Bio from the EPIC website:

  • Executive Director of Vision & Strategy at EPIC Innovation

My work leading businesses development for large organizations in the UK and New Zealand, gave me the appreciation of the value of empowered collaborative teams working closely with clients – as one team. My work co-founding the Enterprise Precinct and Innovation Campus (EPIC) with Colin Andersen has now presented the opportunity to work with a vast array of global entrepreneurs, startups, SME’s, international corporations and Governments.
