Operational team

WorldSkills New Zealand operational team Malcolm Whinham
Malcolm became “hooked” on the WorldSkills concept in 1998 when he judged the Automotive Technology skill at a regional competition. Since that time he has taken on a number of roles, including National and International Skill Manager for Automotive Technology. Malcolm was appointed Technical Delegate in 2010 prior to the International Competition in London. More recently, Malcolm has been appointed to the position of Jury President Team Leader and has become a member of the Technical working Group for WorldSkills International.

Malcolm sees being involved in WorldSkills as a way of giving back to a industry that has looked after him. He likes to see the young people “go further than they can imagine” when they are given a helping hand.
WorldSkills exists, Malcolm believes, to encourage and promote trade excellence.
