Breakfast of champions

Editor News Make a Comment

Hot on the heels of the second PwC Herald Talk on Going Global, NZME’s third Breakfast Business event will focus on Changing Markets – What Does it Take to Thrive. There’s still tickets left for the event, to be held next Wednesday 4 November at the SKYCITY Theatre.

The PwC Herald Talks are a four-part breakfast series designed to give New Zealand’s business leaders the knowledge, insight and strategies to grow and diversify in the ever-changing landscape facing them. A growing tourism industry, booming digital economy and a slowing dairy industry are just some of the factors that influence our changing New Zealand markets.

Fran O’Sullivan, NZME’s editorial director business, says the topic Changing Markets will be of interest to all New Zealand business owners.

“Our economy is constantly changing and New Zealand businesses need to learn to adapt their business models to survive and thrive,” she said. “Consumers are more empowered, demanding and connected than ever before and the uncertainty of tomorrow is a growing concern for many businesses.

“The speed and reactivity to ongoing change, is critical for success and this talk will provide a great opportunity for Kiwi business owners and management teams to learn about practical solutions that can be implemented to improve business performance no matter what size of business you have. That’s what makes these talks so appealing.”

Keynote speaker is inventor/scientist/businessman Sir Ray Avery, founder and ceo of Medicine Mondiale.

O’Sullivan says Avery will be an extremely popular speaker. “Always entertaining and engaging, Sir Ray’s observations on the community and the human condition are enlightening, relevant and very funny,” she said.

A panel discussion on Changing Markets will round off the event featuring Tenby Powell (chairman, Advaro Finance), Mai Chen (Chen Palmer Public and Employment Law Specialists), SKYCITY ceo Nigel Morrison, and Greg Doone (digital strategy & data leader at PwC). Fran O’Sullivan is the adjudicator.

The PwC Herald Talks series are sponsored by the New Zealand Herald, PwC, Newstalk ZB and event partners SKYCITY and Kea.

Tickets for the Changing Markets breakfast are $89 per person at here.
