The sun’s going down in New Zealand

Blair Hesp of Kainic Medical Communications is wrapping up…

After the usual 6AM kick off to make sure we do what I can to catch our UK clients at the end of their day (currently 7PM, but 5PM in the NZ summer/UK winter), I managed to check through emails from clients and make sure everything is in order. As Kainic is happy to work on an ‘on demand’ overnight delivery basis for our Northern Hemisphere clients, it has been a bit of a change to have projects on the go that didn’t have a same day deadline. Today’s work included developing a monograph and outlines for booth panels for an upcoming conference. I’ll continue to work and be online on and off until about 10PM NZ time tonight (11AM UK time) so that I can answer any emails that come through from clients during that time. Like Mark, I compensate for this by having a bit of a break in the late afternoon where I can go for a run around the south coast of Wellington or up into the hills.

On the local front, we have been busy today amending documents for an upcoming tender and preparing on materials to support the mentoring we are doing in association with the Australasian Medical Writers’ Association. Tomorrow is a bit more exciting, as Kainic have been invited to attend the New Zealand Parliament for the 2013 Global Enterprise Experience awards ceremony (after we have completed all our work for our clients of course).

I can’t quite match Mark’s photos from Wanaka, but what I can provide is a photo of the sunset across Island Bay, Wellington, where Kainic is based, looking across Cook Strait to the Marlborough Sounds in the South Island.
