This week marks the 10th anniversary of the late Sir Paul Callaghan's legendary 'vision' speech at the McGuinness Institute event where he presented the idea of New Zealand becoming a place where talent wants to live and that 100  inspired entrepreneurs could turn this country around.

Sir Paul talked about lifting our activities in science, technology and engineering and he advocated sustainability.

The McGuinness Institute hosted a public webinar to mark the anniversary, reuniting many who were present on that day.

The CEO of Callaghan Innovation, Vic Crone, assesses how far Aotearoa has come with Sir Paul's vision.
