Working to enhance the Upper Hutt message Tamsin Somerville COMMERCE COMMENT I would like to introduce myself. My name is Tamsin Somerville and I am the business development services director at Upper Hutt City Council. I am originally from Australia, but I have lived in Upper Hutt for the past six years and I love it. What I love the most is that Upper Hutt is a place where I am very happy to raise my family and where I can afford to buy a house that even has a backyard. I also love the small-community feel and the fact that it is so green here. My role at council oversees a number of areas including policy, reporting, corpor- ate communications, sustainability, econ- omic development, city promotion and project management of the long term plan. During the recent Your city, your way -- Upper Hutt 2022'' consultation and feedback process, more than 220 people voiced their opinions on the strategic vision and way forward for our city. It was encouraging and enlightening to have both sides of the argument involved in the discussions. This was the first step in the process towards the development of our next long term plan 2012-22, and in October 2011, council will undertake further consul- tation on the broad range of initiatives that were proposed out of this consul- tation. This process will shape the vision and strategic direction for Upper Hutt over the next ten years, so it is very important for you to have your say. Getting involved allows council to hear all points of view -- particularly on those projects you support, as sometimes when we are happy with the process ticking along we feel we don't need to say anything. In a loosely related train of thought -- a Nielsen research company reported a couple of years ago that people are more likely to talk about poor experiences than good ones and that bad reports outnum- bergoodonesbyasmuchas5to1. In understanding that the power of the word-of-mouth is extremely important, part of my role will be looking at enhanc- ing and increasing the number of positive Upper Hutt messages. I believe Upper Hutt has a number of strengths, attributes and great things to offer and I plan to use the areas under my portfolio, such as the website, corpor- ate communications and city promotion to build and circulate more positive messages inside and outside our community. Negativity breeds negativity, and what we need right now are positive Upper Hutt experiences and a strong united community. Let me finish with a brilliant quote from our mayor Wayne Guppy: Upper Hutt is a city of opportunities. It has numerous leisure attractions, lifestyle options for families at all stages of life, a rich natural environment, and a strong and inclusive community. Add to that, an effective transport network and a city that is close to Wellington regional connections.''
