Heather Johnston has worked in health and safety for the last 18 years, in a variety of industries.
"In my role as global health and safety manager with Comvita New Zealand, I am increasingly involved in management and business discussions," she says.
"The environment within which health and safety operates is rapidly changing, and is now recognised as a key business tool. This prompted my decision to undertake further learning to build upon my technical knowledge and broaden my general management skills."
Heather is currently studying towards Part One of the Waikato MBA, also known as the Postgraduate Diploma in Management Studies.
"The PGDipMgtSt will expand upon my existing skills and increase my general business knowledge in a way that can be practicably applied in real time."
"I am truly grateful and appreciative that the Tauranga Chamber of Commerce selected me as the recipient of the Tauranga Chamber of Commerce Business Scholarship.
