Aspire 2021 - what a day it was

Aspire 2021 saw over 300 delegates join us for a jam-packed day full of engaging speakers, interactive workshops and local exhibitors. We heard from a fantastic line up including Hon Stuart Nash MP, Greg Foran, Donna Purdue, Volker Kuntzsch, Sinead Boucher, Johny O’Donnell, Hayley McKenzie and Jehan Casinader. Speakers shared inspiring personal stories, practical business advice, journeys of growth and development as well as reflection upon what has a been a challenging year for many.


Workshops carried a core message around the importance of environmentally friendly business and focused on ways to implement change - from solar energy, to waste reduction, as well as exploring the changing face of New Zealand’s labour force. This tied in neatly with the theme for 2021, Tūpuna pono, To Be Good Ancestors.


Here's some pictures from the day, in case you missed them.
