Colin Bass, Partner

Based at the top of the South Island, you will find Colin most weekends mountainbiking in the Richmond Ranges or out on the water enjoying one of the many beautiful beaches of Tasman Bay with his young family.

Colin harbours a passion for helping people work better together by delivering powerful collaborative planning solutions. He’s worked extensively in communities all round New Zealand and has a proven track record in local economic development. His catch cry, ‘You can’t take the ED out of community’, exemplifies the integrated approach he embraces in his work.

Colin founded Business Lab in 2000 with the vision of developing a planning approach that simplifies this often complex task while making it more effective and enjoyable for those involved.
