RedAway 2017 – Tech Futures, Business Storytelling and Self-Selection!
Our annual gathering of the entire Redvespa team is a ritual we all love. Lead by the Gibsons we know it’s important to celebrate what we’re doing, and for our Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch consultants to get together, share their knowledge and have some fun! This can be via a Redvespa Getaway or the much vaunted Redvespa Christmas party…it all started with Richard dancing on tables after all.
Creative Innovation - Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Automation for our Unsung Hero
Last year we announced a new Redvespa award, the Unsung Hero. Our Unsung Hero award is for our permanent employees, and recognises loyalty, commitment and having consistently gone above and beyond often without fanfare over more than four years with Redvespa. Last year, our award recipient was Ieuan Wickham, who jetted away to Las Vegas and attended BBC. You can read about Ieuan in last years announcement.
What Kids are learning today!
Data, information and knowledge is in no shortage in 2017 – and we can access it via a multitude of channels. While this holds great value and should be leveraged, some of the most crucial skills for the future of our profession, and others, are the intangibles or what is often called ‘soft-skills’. Recently we have been working with, and learning from – Jack O’Neil – a Gen Z young man, who is learning some fascinating things at school!
We thought we’d better get ahead of the game, check out the small snippet from the afternoon with our star – Jack O’Neil!
Redvespa Launches in Christchurch!
We’re excited to announce Redvespa is launching in the South Island with Christchurch as our home base. Redvespa’s founder, Richard Gibson, started in Wellington 13 years ago and Auckland 6 years ago. He will be doing what he does best – bringing his energy, wisdom and joy for Redvespa and its clients to the South Island, supported by CEO, Sarah Gibson.

Redvespa - The Business with Family Values
In September 2003 we were sitting around the family dining table when we made the decision to start our own consulting company. We set out to take on the business analysis world with passion, generosity and flair – the way we live our lives! Redvespa was officially launched by Richard in October 2003. Fast forward to September 2016 and we have just employed our second son – Jamie. Our first son Tom joined Redvespa 3 years before. We thought it timely to talk about what being a business with family values means, and how it feels for us to work together in the business.
