The Engine business tv show and PODCAST

Do you want to build brand equity for your business through the Mana of TV?

Without it costing an arm and a leg? And with proven reach results.


In the beginning…

A dream founder of The Engine, Catherine Cooke had was being able to story tell businesses brands where business owners could be given a platform to share their voice without exhausting all their cashflow.  In 2020 The Engine was asked to participate as a business expert on The Café and so started a platform to bring businesses, their knowledge and stories to TV.  Following this in June 2021 the dream continued with a lengthened show delivered in partnership with Face TV New – bringing real kiwi business stories from real kiwi people to TV and PODCAST through The Engine Business Show.

With digitisation becoming more and more integrated into business, having omni-channel solutions is crucial to building trust and engagement with your audience.

Being on TV in the past seemed to be only for:

The multi-million dollar companies

The big brands

The businesses with connections...

Why should that be so?

Small businesses make up 97% of the  businesses in New Zealand which means our TV world is dominated by around 3% of New Zealand businesses or foriegn businesses looking to break into the NZ market. 

Why should such a small percentage saturate the airways when the everyday small businesses owner represents the largest sector in business? 

Don’t you want to hear real kiwi business stories from real kiwi business owners?

The Engine and our Providers thought so too.
