Mentor Exchange Closing Event – Tuesday 1 May

The event was a casual cocktail get-together, where Mentor Exchange participants chatted about their programme experience and outcomes. The event was hosted by our Auckland Regional Manager.

Hamish Bond: Life Lessons through Sporting Excellence - Wednesday 9 May

In partnership with Forsyth Barr we were thrilled to offer members an audience with Hamish Bond. Hamish was part of 'New Zealand's Golden Pair' along with Eric Murray, who claimed Gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics, their 69th consecutive win. Such phenomenal success however brought its own challenges, which Hamish presented on.

Hamish highlighted learning's and observations from 13 years of international sporting success, including what drives him on a daily basis, and what was the Kiwi pair's secret recipe for their 8 year 69 race winning streak.

This sell-out event was held at Forsyth Barr’s Auckland Offices and we had an additional 200 people viewing via live webcast.
