Springboard Trust’s partnerships are wide-ranging, with organisations providing volunteers or resources to support our vision of Transforming Schools Together.
One of our oldest partnerships – in fact, one that goes back as long as any of us can remember – is with FUJIFILM Business Innovation (formerly Fuji Xerox). They’ve recently completed a significant renaming and rebranding project – so we caught up with their Marketing and Communications Manager, Kevin Ptak, to see how it’s all going!
How FUJIFILM Business Innovation and Springboard Trust work together
Fujifilm’s vision is creating the future with innovative solutions for our customers and, as Kevin explains, a big part of that is their sponsorship work.
“We have a portfolio with four main themes: education, sport, community and the arts. Part of creating a better future for New Zealand is focusing on what we’re great at in service of those themes, and working with Springboard Trust is a natural extension of that.”
“Education is hugely important to New Zealand. We do lots of work with schools commercially and through our sponsorships, and Springboard Trust’s work with educational leaders is a great way to support that. We love getting behind what you do.”
Fujifilm’s support for Springboard Trust is broad, ranging from technical support and printing services to our volunteer space, with Fujifilm employees taking part in our Strategic Leadership for Principals Programme as Capacity Partners!
Of course, Springboard Trust isn’t the only educational organisation Fujifilm works with. There’s the New Zealand Principals’ Federation, Independent Schools of New Zealand, regional principals’ groups and many more.
“Fundamentally, our work in this space is about supporting others to deliver better educational outcomes for young New Zealanders – it's as simple as that.”
