Latest Projects:

All Blacks vs South Africa

Ambassadors were on hand to assist the AB’s with yet another Test win at Eden Park, by ensuring that all members of the travelling public had the correct assistance and information. They made sure that the fans with a game ticket knew about the free transport options both to and from the game, and regular travellers knew how to get to their destination in the most efficient way, with the significant game day changes to regular services in place.

It’s a big job educating the city about transport changes, but once again PeopleMax ambassadors were out disseminating this information to the public. North Shore commuters were greeted by friendly faces along the Northern Bus route recently – read more about their role here.

Survey Work Counting Passengers at New Lynn Station

Businesses need to obtain accurate information to be able to make informed decisions on how to enhance their efficiency or productivity; this is where PeopleMax ambassadors are able to offer a further valuable service by collecting information for our clients. Read more about how the meticulous skills of our ambassadors played an important role in collecting accurate information recently in New Lynn.

Panmure Personal Journey Planning

Ambassadors have been working alongside OPUS Consultants to encourage an increased uptake of public transport usage in the Panmure area. They have been recruiting participants into the project by door knocking and offering journey planning services and incentives for members of the public to take up public transport… more in the next newsletter.

PeopleMax Newsletter July and August 2012

Hello from the team at PeopleMax®!

Been watching the Olympics? Us too.

Last time there was a major world sporting event, namely the RWC, PeopleMax was heavily involved to help keep people moving during the tournament. We can only hope that our British counterparts are helping to sort out any of the transport problems that were predicted before the Games.

And while nothing is occupying us on the scale of the RWC at the moment, there’s still plenty on to keep us busy, including playing a small part in a private concert at the Cloud by a certain global superstar. But more on that later.

PeopleMax® is the reliable, no-hassle contract workforce provider. Remember, if you book full or part-time staff with us, we’ll do everything for you – training, rostering, contracts, salaries, communication, management and post-campaign reporting.

What our PeopleMax contract staff have been up to:

Private Concert in the Cloud

It wasn’t officially confirmed but it’s fairly certain that the Airport Bus service was affected
on July 19th because of a private concert by Justin Bieber.

The concert took place at the Cloud on Auckland’s waterfront so the usual pick-up and drop-off point of the Airport Bus service changed location. Two People Max ambassadors were there to redirect passengers to the new stop.

Justin Beiber

Did you see Justin at the Cloud?

NZ Bus Union Meeting x 2.

A day in early July saw a 9.30am-2pm shutdown of all bus services on the CityLINK, Outer LINK, Metrolink, Go West, Waka Pacific and North Star networks so drivers could attend a union meeting.

Our role was two-fold: People Max contract workers were out on the streets the day before the meeting to pre-warn commuters about the disruptions. Then on the day of the meeting our team were out there to help members of the public find an alternative public transport option – and we’re doing it again this week with another stoppage on Friday. This Thursday the team will again be out and about giving affected users the heads up of a stoppage on Friday. Just like last time, many NZ Bus users miss out on hearing about the forthcoming stoppage so are very pleased that our Ambassadors are there on location to give them the heads up…

Sober Driver Sorted?
The New Zealand Warriors rugby league team recently paid a visit to the Wendys Restaurant in Te Atatu to promote the ‘Sober Driver Sorted?’ campaign.

The campaign was promoting the idea of always organising a sober driver on a night out. Members of the public could participate in the promotion on Facebook with Wendys vouchers and other prizes up for grabs.

And while the Warriors visited Wendys Te Atatu, we had 5 part-time contract workers there to hand out flyers about the campaign and to interact with the public.

Sober Drive Sorted

Play the Sober Drive Game and Win

Glen Innes Music and Arts Centre
It’s an exciting time for those in Panmure, Glen Innes and St Johns with the announcement of an $8 million arts and music centre to be built in the area.

An open day was held in the Glen Innes Community Hall where the designer and master planning team discussed plans for the new centre, there were performances by local musicians and dancers and the public was encouraged to take part in the community art station.

Seven People Max part-time workers took part in a flyer drop in these suburbs to invite people along to the open day.

Getting Electric
Electrification continues to be rolled out over the Auckland rail network which is exciting but does come with a few disruptions along the way.

A handful of stations around Auckland were affected with electronic information boards being switched off for a period of time. To compensate, People Max contract staff were on hand to deal with any queries from the public.

Train Station works
Works at several train stations including Panmure, Ranui, Sturges Road and Baldwin Avenue caused minor disruptions throughout July.

At various times one platform was closed meaning trains were running in both directions on one track. Our team of contract workers made sure everyone was waiting for their train in the correct area.

New Lynn Interchange
Work was also occurring at the New Lynn Interchange with stops being closed at various times in late July. People Max transport ambassador’s redirected commuters to their alternative stops while these works were ongoing.

What’s coming up for People Max/Action Actors:

Bledisloe Cup
In late August Eden Park will again be full of rugby fans for the latest Bledisloe Cup Test between the All Blacks and Australia. The Australian teams didn’t fare very well in the Super 15, but the Wallabies may be a different proposition. People Max ambassadors will again be on hand be helping the public to get to and from the game.

Rail Safety Week
Next week PeopleMax/Action Actors will take place in Rail Safety week as part of Kiwi Rails campaign to promote Rail Safety. Check out what the team will be wearing and keep an eye out around Auckland and Tauranga for them.

 

Rail Crossing Job

Watch out for the Action Actors Dresses at Railway Crossings

ITU World Champs
The International Triathlon World Champs are coming to Auckland in October.

Last time New Zealand hosted an international triathlon event Kiwi Kris Gemmel ran away with first place. Let’s hope for a repeat performance. We’ll have 65 of our part-time workers helping to make the event run smoothly.

PEOPLEMAX® CLIENT E-MAIL – JUNE 2012

Hello from the team at PeopleMax®!

It’s been a massive month for PeopleMax and our part-time contract workers with a tonne of projects to get our teeth into!

We also had a fantastic campaign come in for our Action Actors team who will use their unique expertise as part of the Cadbury ‘Marvellous Creations’ promotion.  Not only will they be doing what we do best – getting across a client’s message effectively and interacting with the public – but they’ll be doing it completely in character in what amounts to almost a full blown performance.

PeopleMax® is the reliable, no-hassle contract workforce provider.  Remember, if you book full or part-time staff with us, we’ll do everything for you – training, rostering, contracts, salaries, communication, management and post-campaign reporting.

 

 What our PeopleMax contract staff have been up to:

 Auckland Transport Event: All Blacks versus Ireland

The test series is over now with an as-predicted 3-0 (only just) victory to the mighty men in black.

The first game took place at Eden Park with over 40,000 spectators making their way to the ground to see ABs cruise to victory.  With Auckland Transport offering free travel to and from the game for those with their match ticket, plenty of fans took advantage.

Fans

 (Fans at Britomart Transport Centre Heading to Eden Park for the Match)

 

30 PeopleMax Transport Ambassadors were out and about at train stations aroundAucklandmaking sure these journeys to the ground and then back home ran as smoothly as possible.

Let’s hope the Tri-Series againstAustraliaandSouth Africagoes as well for us on the field!

 

Auckland Transport: Brother New Zealand Rally

The Brother New Zealand Rally Championship is a firm fixture on the WRC calendar each year.  Even Sebastian Loeb, 8 time world champion, has said how much he enjoys coming here to race.

Auckland Transport Stepped in as the events around the rally meant there were slight disruptions for commuters with a bus-stop closed on Jellicoe Street for three days.

(Bindesh one of PeopleMax Transport Ambassadors working on Jellicoe Street)

Once again our PeopleMax contract workers were out on the streets to lend a hand in their Auckland Transport Blue Transport Information Uniforms.  With one person manning the closed stop and one at the temporary stop, commuters were made aware of the change.

As for the rally, Loeb won once again and looks to be on course to add to his massive tally of world championships.

 

 Auckland Transport: AMETI Panmure Train Station Upgrade

The Ellerslie Train Station recently received a facelift to make the station more attractive and easier-to-use and the Panmure Train Station is getting similar attention.  The station is having a new bridge and tunnel added which meant some disruptions for commuters.

 

Transport Ambassadors from PeopleMax were there during the improvement works to

Auckland Transport: New Bus Interchange at Otara

A brand new bus interchange station for the people of Otara has just opened.

For those commuters who weren’t aware of this, PeopleMax Transport Ambassadors were stationed at the old interchange to point them toward the new interchange so they could catch their service.

Kiwi Rail: Getting Electric

There’s another major change coming to theAucklandrail network: electrification.

Several train stations were affected for a few hours while the power was switched over by KiwiRail staff.

 

Because of this, the electronic information boards were briefly out of commission.

To compensate, we sent our PeopleMax contract staff to deal with any queries from the public that arose from the absence of the information boards.

Auckland City Council: New Lynn Flyer Drop

Not only are our PeopleMax temporary workers adept at dealing with the public in person, but they excel in other ways too.

NewLynnresidents needed to be made aware of several improvements to their community including a more pedestrian friendly area aroundGreat North RoadandDelta Avenueas well as the creation of 36 new carparks near the local community centre.

To get this information out there, over 20 PeopleMax temporary contract staff hit the streets to complete a mail drop over the entire district to inform residents about these positive changes.

What’s coming up for Action Actors

 

Action Actors and Synergy’s Cadbury’s Joyville

Cadbury has launched a new line of products titled ‘Marvellous Creations’ which are in shops right now.

Action Actors have been recruited by Synergy to help promote these new chocolate bars around supermarkets and shopping malls in Auckland.

Not only are our superb actors handing out product to the public but they will be doing so as characters from ‘Joyville’ – the fictional village created by Cadburys.

The public will be entertained by this troupe of characters in what is almost a full performance.

Hello from the team at PeopleMax®!

There’s plenty been happening in the PeopleMax® world recently.  The Auckland Transport network has been undergoing maintenance, while work has been completed on the revamped Ellerslie Train Station.  Our part-time contract workers were there to make sure things ran smoothly and that passengers were well informed about changes and delays.

Plus with the Steinlager series kicking off between the All Blacks andIreland, PeopleMax® will have a hand in that too.

PeopleMax® is the reliable, no-hassle contract workforce provider.  Remember, if you book full or part-time staff with us, we’ll do everything for you – training, rostering, contracts, salaries, communication, management and post-campaign reporting.

What our PeopleMax contract staff have been up to:

Ellerslie Train Station Opening Ceremony

Len Brown Opening Ellerslie Train Station

Len Brown Opening Ellerslie Train Station

A couple of months ago PeopleMax® part-time staff were on-hand to assist passengers while an $8 million upgrade on the Ellerslie Train Station was ongoing.  That work is now finished and Auckland SuperCity Mayor Len Brown led the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new station.

The improved station is safer, more attractive and gives better access for mobility users and pedestrians. The work included shifting the rail tracks to give space for developments on the Southern Motorway and the rail over-bridge has been raised so that electric trains can pass underneath.

Trains continued to run during the opening ceremony and a PeopleMax® ambassador was there to make sure commuters were aware of this.

Train Station Maintenance

Two other stations on theAucklandrail network were receiving maintenance (on a slightly smaller scale than Ellerslie) with electronic displays not working while this was in progress.

PeopleMax® Ambassadors were on location at the Onehunga and Te Papapa Train Stations to help people with timetables and to ensure all passengers knew which trains to catch and the times at which they could catch them.

Panmure Train Station Works

Electrification is coming to theAucklandrail network and Panmure Train Station has been next in line to prepare for these changes.

One of the tracks and platforms were closed while this work was happening causing some minor delays.  Two of our Transport Ambassadors were directing passengers to the correct platform and advising them of these delays.

Tamaki Drive Road Works

Tamaki DrivearoundMissionBayis a busy transport route that was affected by road works recently. While these works were underway, we had five PeopleMax® contract workers in the area for 12 hours a day assisting passengers whose buses were relocated to temporary stops.

What’s coming up for PeopleMax?

All Blacks versus Ireland

All Blacks vs Ireland

It’s hard to believe but the last time the All Blacks played was all the way back in October in the final of the Rugby World Cup – seems like so long ago.

The men in black begin their test campaign for 2012 with tests againstIreland– a country that has never beaten the All Blacks in over 100 years of trying.

If you’re going to the game at EdenParkon June 9th you’ll be eligible for free travel on trains or special events buses that are heading toEdenPark. Over thirty of our PeopleMax® Transport Ambassadors will be scattered around Auckland’s CBD and at various train stations to help you with your travel plans.

Hello from the team at PeopleMax!

As the year starts to gather steam, things are getting busy for our PeopleMax part-time contract workers as well as our Action Actors team.

Auckland Transport is undergoing a few changes with a new train station in South Auckland, bus services changing inEast Aucklandand fare changes occurring across the board.  And our team has been there to get the word out and help to make sure things run smoothly.

PeopleMax is the reliable, no-hassle contract workforce provider.  Remember, if you book full or part-time staff with us, we’ll do everything for you – training, rostering, contracts, salaries, communication, management and post-campaign reporting.

 

 

The new Manukau Train Station

Auckland Transport is increasing its reach into South Aucklandwith a new train station at Manukau.

In mid-April they held an open day so the public could see the new facility and enjoy tours, short train rides, face painting and music from DJ Sir-Vere.

Two PeopleMax ambassadors were there to hand out timetables and flyers to potential commuters and encourage other people who were in the area to attend the event.

The new train station will have three trains an hour passing through in peak times and one per hour in off peak.

 

Manukau Train Station

Changes to the Howick and Eastern bus services

Things are changing for the better for those living in East Aucklandwith services being modified.  Frequency is increasing along certain routes while access to other destinations is being improved.

From locations in the City and in the Eastern suburbs, around 40 People Max contract workers and Action Actors staff have been out and about informing the public of these changes.

 

Howick and Eastern Bus

 


Kiwis vs Kangaroos Rugby League Test

The annual Anzac Rugby League Test match between the Kiwis and the Kangaroos took place at Eden Park.  The less said about the result the better but over 30,000 people turned out to watch the match and voice their support for the World Cup winning Kiwis.

Just like for Super 15 games at Eden Park this season, many thousands of spectators arrived at the ground via the train and we had 20 PeopleMax ambassadors manning the train stations close to the ground.

Our part-time workers were relaying information specific to this event to train and bus users to make their journey easier going to the match.

And regardless of the result, PeopleMax helped to make sure people got home safely and as quickly as possible.

Kiwis vs Kangaroos

 

 

What’s coming up for PeopleMax?

Fare changes

 At the end of the month there are changes to public transport fares happening across the board.  And PeopleMax will play a role in Auckland Transport’s campaign to get this message out to commuters.

For the week leading up to the fare changes, People Max ambassadors will be out there informing the public of changes to fares for buses, trains and ferries around Auckland.

Newsletter March 2012

Hello from the team at PeopleMax!

So we’ve all been back at work for a while but, typically, the students are only just starting their year.  Campuses are beginning to fill up with new and returning students and they’ve been the primary focus for our part-time contract staff in recent times.

Our part-time contractors have also been looking out for the general public too, with a road safety campaign focusing specifically on pedestrians.

PeopleMax® is the reliable, no-hassle contract workforce provider.  Remember, if you book full or part-time staff with us, we’ll do everything for you – training, rostering, contracts, salaries, communication, management and post-campaign reporting.

 

What our PeopleMax contract staff are up to right now:

Have you got your Maxx ID sticker?

Auckland Transport is keen to encourage the student population to use public transport.  Students receive significant discounts on fare prices (up to 40% off normal prices) but they now need a specific sticker on their student ID to receive them.

 

Tertiary Campaign

 

PeopleMax had over 20 ambassadors at 5 tertiary institutions around Auckland (MIT, Massey, Unitec, AUT and both Auckland University campuses in the CBD and Tamaki) handing out flyers and reminding students to get a Maxx ID sticker on their student ID as soon as possible.

HOP Promotions Campaign

Once a student has their Maxx ID sticker, they’re able to renew their Tertiary HOP card.

Hop Campaign

What they might not know is that 2011 Tertiary HOP cards need to be renewed for 2012 by the end of March.

This is why the 5 major tertiary institutions in Auckland all had booths manned by PeopleMax contract workers, helping students fill out the renewal form and to make sure the paperwork is all ship-shape so they can receive public transport discounts.

 

Check Before You Step’

It’s a sad fact that too many pedestrians are injured inNew Zealandeach year.  Auckland Transport and PeopleMax, along with Action Actors, were trying to help minimise incidents on the roads this year.

The name of the campaign was ‘Check before your step’.

Six ‘Lifesavers’ were at intersections around Auckland intercepting people who are about to cross the road, asking them various questions about the campaign and giving them postcards with safety hints for travelling on foot.

We’re hopeful that through this campaign our PeopleMax ambassadors and Action Actors staff will help prevent injuries on our roads in 2012.

 

What’s coming up for PeopleMax?

At 5am on the 25th of March, things are really going to change onNew Zealand roads.

Two give way rules are being modified to make our roads safer.  As the habits of most drivers are fairly ingrained and these changes affect all road users (drivers, riders, cyclists and pedestrians), it’s a big challenge for Auckland Transport and the NZTA to spread the word.

As part of the wider campaign to educate the public on these changes, PeopleMax contract workers will be out and about on the streets ofAuckland.  Our part-time contractors will be handing out flyers, explaining how the new rules will work and making sure that people know the date the changes will occur.

 

Give Way Rule

Newsletter- January 2012

Happy New Year to all our PeopleMax® and Action Actors contractors and clients!

Hope you had a great holiday, although the less said about the weather the better – especially since things seemed to have fined up as soon as we all headed back to work.

Never mind, the team at PeopleMax® are raring to go in 2012.

2011 was an amazing year for us and we’re confident that the only way is up for the coming year.

PeopleMax® is the reliable, no-hassle contract workforce provider. Remember, if you book full or part-time staff with us, we’ll do everything for you – training, rostering, contracts, salaries, communication, management and post-campaign reporting.

What’s been happening at PeopleMax recently:

Ellerslie Train Station
The NZ Transport Agency, Auckland Transport and KiwiRail are currently collaborating on an upgrade of the Ellerslie Train Station.

The idea is that in the future the Southern Motorway will have an extra lane constructed in the north-bound direction. The new station design will allow this to happen.

And, as an added bonus, the station itself will have a better layout with more attractive facilities and much improved access.

To help make the renovation go smoother, we have PeopleMax® part-time Transport Ambassadors monitoring passenger movement on the platform, answering any questions and helping any mobility or sight-impaired passengers that need assistance due to the changes in the layout of the station while it’s under renovation.

Otara Transport Centre

More transport upgrades have been underway around the city – this time in South Auckland – at the Otara Transport Centre on January 16th and 17th.

The upgrade meant that the usual stops were closed and buses were relocated to temporary stops. PeopleMax® had part-time contract workers on hand as Transport Ambassadors who ensured that passengers were directed to the correct temporary stop.

Sandringham Bus Services
Central city road works in Bowen Street were behind the temporary relocation of several bus-stops in January, which affected buses travelling to the Sandringham area.

Once the work was completed, PeopleMax® had members of their contract workforce out making people aware that they could return to their usual bus stops in the CBD.

What’s coming up for PeopleMax?

Auckland Transport Tertiary Campaign
With the 2012 school year about to begin, Auckland will soon experience a new influx of students to various tertiary institutions around the city.

In March, PeopleMax® Transport Ambassadors will be stationed near universities and polytechnics to help new students with their public transport queries and to check they have special tertiary stickers on their ID cards. These stickers mean they can receive discounts on Auckland buses, trains and ferries.

Super 15 Rugby
Our World Cup triumph may seem like a world away now, so if you’re experiencing withdrawal symptoms, Super 15 Rugby is back in late February and goes right through until June.

We’re personally hoping for a strong performance from the Auckland Blues in 2012. If you’re attending any games this season at either Eden Park or North Harbour Stadium and taking public transport, chances are you’ll see more of our PeopleMax® Transport Ambassadors.

Our contract workers will be out and about distributing essential information at bus stops and train stations so that crowds can get to and from the games quickly and easily.

Newsletter – December 2011

To all our PeopleMax® and ActionActors Contractors and Clients – Merry Christmas!

It’s been one heck of a year – from settling in with the new Auckland Council and Auckland Transport, to setting up ActionActors and of course, our most amazing project of all time with Rugby World Cup 2011. This has been an amazing year and a big thank you to all our clients and especially all our fantastic PeopleMax® and ActionActors workers.

It goes without saying that the Rugby World Cup was the most memorable project (but jeez did the final have to be such a nail biter?!). We haven’t added up all the contractor hours worked during the cup but we had a total of over 200 workers involved each day in the last weekend making RWC2011 a real test to the organisation and its people at every level, and our Ambassadors really delivered. (See Gallery for pictures of the Auckland Transport Ambassadors in action – link).

PeopleMax® wraps up the year a bigger, better and stronger organisation and looks forward to providing more workers to the work for 2012. Whilst the administration office shuts down from the end of the week until January 16th, the Field Managers will be running the show over the Christmas/New Year break and are available to book your project or can provide assistance if required.

We are the reliable, no-hassle contract workforce provider. Remember, if you book full or part-time staff with us, we’ll do everything for you – training, rostering, contracts, salaries, communication, management and post-campaign reporting.

Thanks again for such a great year – here’s a review of the Rugby World Cup 2011 some of the other projects undertaken recently.

PeopleMax® out and about:
Rugby World Cup 2011
Usually we have several projects on the go at once but recently, surprise surprise, our contract staff were dedicated to one event in particular – the Rugby World Cup.

We had a fantastic tournament – and not just because of who the winners were.

It was an incredibly effective campaign with our pro-active contract workers at bus-stops and train stations from Papakura through to Albany as well as right near the action at Eden Park.

Bus Relocations
To cater for the games and the fan zones in downtown Auckland, there were many road closures that forced bus-stops to be relocated. We had event staff stationed around Britomart to inform the public about bus-stop changes and either redirecting them with maps or even walking them to the new stop.

Train Stations
Part-time workers at train stations were handing out flyers that included transport information, as well as helping people get to the right train platform or to special event buses that replaced certain train services. As for the contract workers stationed around Eden Park, they were able to direct fans to the correct stadium entrance from Kingsland Train Station.

If anyone had transport issues and needed help to find alternatives, we had our project staff there. They also answered all manner of questions about Auckland, helping to make people’s evenings and overall time in the city more enjoyable.

During a Rugby World Cups shift PeopleMax® part-time workers each handled anywhere between 50 interactions with people at quieter stations such as Takapuna, right up to 700 interactions at Kingsland Train Station. And we received a lot of great feedback from the public about the help they received from our contract workers.

As the crowds and excitement built throughout the tournament we were able to respond to the large demand for part-time staff at short notice. The bottom line being that with our solid base of contract
workers we have the scope to cater for events of this size.

Your needs may not be as great as those of a major international sporting event but it doesn’t matter – we can provide you with event staff and project staff, both part and full-time.

Auckland Triathlon ITU World Cup
Another international sporting event, another win for New Zealand, and over 30 PeopleMax® part-time workers out on the streets of Auckland helping things to run smoothly. The triathlon course meant many streets in Downtown Auckland were closed, meaning bus diversions and bus-stop relocations. PeopleMax® contract workers were ensuring bus-stops had the correct signage, redirecting the public to new bus-stops and assuring them that they were in the right location to catch their bus.

Farmers Santa Parade
Thousands of people lined Queen Street and the surrounding area to catch a glimpse of Santa Claus – our hard-working contract staff gave up their chance to see Santa so they could help out parade-goers and other members of the public get around Auckland smoothly.

36 of our contract staff manned bus-stops around the CBD to hand out flyers informing the public about new bus timetables brought about by the parade, and to point people in the right direction to catch their bus.

Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park
Santa also made an appearance at this yearly event in the Auckland Domain. The Newmarket and Grafton train stations had 3 PeopleMax® event staff members a-piece informing the public about two things – the walking route to the event and how to get home after the event.

Meanwhile at the Domain, 5 PeopleMax® contract staff were there beforehand to direct bus drivers to specific locations to drop off their passengers; and were there afterwards to help people catch the correct bus to go home.

Kiwi Rail
2011 has seen PeopleMax® staff complete mail drops for Kiwi Rail along various rail way lines. This was to ensure there is clear communication between Kiwi Rail and the residents and businesses in those areas that may be affected by the works.

Veolia Transport
Recently PeopleMax® have been assisting Veolia transport to ensure that the public are aware of the upcoming rail-works around the Christmas and New Year period. Contract workers were on-site at the Britomart Transport Centre to provide information on where rail replacement buses were departing and ensure any other relevant information was issued to the public.

ActionActors
Since the launch of ActionActors, our part-time contract staff have been busy with various promotional projects for several clients:

DHL Rugby Zone Promotion
Our ActionActors part-time staff got involved during the RWC as well. Action Actors Contractors were down at Queens Wharf promoting the DHL Kicking Simulator. Members of the public who came to the DHL stand were able to emulate Dan Carter (without the injury of course) by kicking a RWC football over the goal. A little bit of fun for about 6 ActionActors staff working on this project for 2 months.

Just Juice
ActionActors staff were out in supermarkets across Auckland to promote Just Juice’s brand new range of drinks. Supermarket-goers were asked to blind test Just Juice against a competitor’s brand and give their feedback. Some lucky customers were even given free passes to Auckland Zoo for their participation.

AIM Proximity Pulse Xmas Party
Two contractors from ActionActors had a fantastic time working at the AIM Proximity Pulse Xmas party where the theme was ‘Croonies Cruise’. We provided a ‘Captain’ greeting guests at the door as well as an ActionActors mystery guest named ‘the Birthday Boy’. All in all it was a great night for all the AIM Proximity Pulse staff.
