On July 30th, Massey University’s Business Student Group brought together four economics experts, including former Reserve Bank governor Dr Don Brash, to discuss some of the biggest economic issues New Zealand currently faces.
Associate Professor Russell Gregory-Allen and Dr Sasha Molchanov from the School of Economics & Finance organised the questions for panelists and audience, and ran Xorro-Q during the event with Associate Professor David Tripe as MC leading the panel discussion.
Preceding the event, the audience was asked to use their personal browsing devices to complete a short personal profile using Xorro-Q.
The main part of the evening was divided into four discussion topics for the panel:
During each topic, the audience was able to submit questions for the panel to consider; these were moderated by Dr Sasha Molchanov. Following each topic the audience responded to a short batch of questions; audience response to these questions became the subject of lively debate among panelists. Some highlights from the audience responses:
The evening closed with a brief poll of the audience to gauge their views on the event's success.
93% of the audience felt the event provided excellent or above average interest, and 78% of respondents felt use of Xorro-Q played an important or very important role in making the evening interesting for them.
Our congratulations go to Associate Heads of School Dr Jeffrey Stangl and Assoc Professor David Tripe, the dedicated team from Massey University's School of Economics & Finance, and to the Business Student Group led by Jonathan McDonald, for organising such a memorable evening for the large audience.
