KIWI #8 WIRE THINKING

Turning Challenges into Opportunities

As tradition goes, the phrase ‘Number 8 Wire‘ came to fruition in New Zealand to represent the can-do attitude, ingenuity and resourcefulness of kiwis. We have a number 8 wire mentality that we can repair or create something out of scrap or whatever is available at the time. This mentality is rooted deep in the kiwi psyche. It is our ‘we can do it, no matter what we are given’ mentality.
