LPS is thrilled to be finalists in two categories for the 2017 Reseller News ICT Industry Awards…. in Large Market Vendor and the Best Partner Initiative.
LPS is proud to announce super rugby sponsorship of the Hurricanes.LPS has jumped at the incredible opportunity for the 2017 Super Rugby season becoming an official sponsor of the Hurricanes. The Hurricanes continue in their bid to become back-to-back Investec Super Rugby champions. We can’t wait to see what the new season brings and LPS aligns itself as a key sponsor.
Field at the Hurricanes games:
The LPS logo will be proudly emblazoned on the field during the seven Hurricanes home games. So the logo will be next to an amazing team which aligns with the companies values. “We are really honoured to become part of the Canes family in 2017” says LPS Chief Executive Officer, Paul Alexander. “We see the organisation as such a united and cohesive side whose hard work and planning has led to the ultimate reward”.
New Zealand Rugby:
They have consistently turned out some of the biggest superstars of All Black and New Zealand rugby. They work together as a team that defines the underlying strategy and class of the group. As a result, we feel that LPS shares the same ethos. As a hard-working, future-focused Project Service organisation that supports its partners in achieving their ultimate goals.”
LPS focuses on growing its presence in Australia. Also having half of its New Zealand operations based out of the Wellington region and Auckland. The alignment with the champion Hurricanes is even more exciting. “We are really thrilled to be able to share some of our knowledge with the franchise where we have the opportunity. In return for the motivation and humbling sense of achievement that comes with being aligned with such a successful group” says LPS Chief of Staff, Doug Clarke.
“2017 is going to be a huge year for us as a result of this. We are hoping to continue growing our team by over 30% across Australasia. Therefore key strategic partnerships are really important to us and without a doubt, it’s going to be a huge year for the Canes too!”
A formation entry into Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour will be held at midday on Monday 8 February, 2016 as part of the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN) 75th Anniversary celebrations.
It will include a 17-gun salute from HMNZS Canterbury as she passes Devonport Naval Base at midday, and this will be reciprocated with an 11-gun salute fired from HMNZS Te Mana, berthed at Devonport Naval Base.
The gun salute is part of the 75th celebrations that are designed to showcase the Navy of today to the community, while valuing the historical contribution of those who have gone before us.
The salute is a naval tradition in which the Maritime Component Commander of the RNZN is formally acknowledging the newly appointed Chief of Navy, Rear Admiral John Martin ONZM.
“Whether it’s disaster relief, peace support operations, ensuring that the sea trade on which we depend for our survival can get through, or protecting New Zealand’s exclusive economic zone and marine resources, the Royal New Zealand Navy as part of the New Zealand Defence Force protects and serves the causes important to us and our way of life.”
The ceremony can be viewed from North Head and other vantage points around the Harbour.
LPS is proud to be sponsoring this event and the overall 75th Anniversary celebrations.

Great close up magic by Anton van Helden at the welcome function. Looking forward to day two… #NZPMconference— NZPMC2015 (@NZPMC) September 2, 2015
Of course we like to add a little magic, so we brought our friend Anton the Magician along for some entertainment. Fun wasn’t just for the evening sessions though – we got to build some lego too.
Predicting progress on your project – using Lego bricks understand Earned Value – great fun!
