In this episode, I talk with another innovative and talented entrepreneur – Annette Presley. After growing up in South Auckland, Annette has gone on to achieve impressive success in business in both New Zealand and Australia.

Annette’s entrepreneurial acumen led to her being selected as a judge on the 2006 TV programme – Dragon’s Den.  With former husband Malcolm Dick, she built and sold two leading communications companies – ‘Call Australia’ and then ‘CallPlus’ of which sold in 2015 for $250 million.
