No Dunedin company should dare to think it’s immune from the need to be competitive, even with what’s on offer from ‘outside’, be it for good or bad – cosying is always a risk.

Job fears as stadium contract goes out of town
By Chris Morris
Dunedin businessmen say jobs will be on the line after an audiovisual contract at Forsyth Barr Stadium was awarded to a recently formed, out-of-town company with links to a former Australian bankrupt.
It was confirmed last week DV Audio Visual Ltd had been signed as the preferred provider for audiovisual services inside the stadium. The decision by Dunedin Venues Management Ltd – which runs the stadium and other Dunedin venues – left the owners of Dunedin companies Strawberry Sound and Southern Lights and Services fuming last week. Both told the Otago Daily Times they were concerned the move could be replicated at other DVML-controlled venues, including the town hall, and lead to job losses for their employees.
