Seminar Explores Keys To Successful Relationships

Seminar Explores How to Find The Keys To A Successful Relationship – Relationship Experts Set To Help With ‘Relationship Building’ For Marrieds And Singles

Wellington – 21 September 2006 – Finding life partners has become increasingly challenging in a world that continues to move fast and where individual pressures are growing.

And although internet dating sites have seen massive growth, their outcomes are not always either satisfactory or desirable for those seeking a stable relationship.

A leading expert and author on relationship issues, Suzanne Innes-Kent, who has lectured and written on relationship issues, as well as making television and radio appearances and written a book on the rules for courtship, is feature speaker at a weekend seminar to explain the keys towards finding and sustaining successful relationships in the 21st century.

The seminar, “The Art of a Good Relationship” is being held at Wellington on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 October and is designed to help both singles and married couples develop and maintain the sort of relationships they want, rather than what they may have.

“There are mounting difficulties for both single people, but also couples who are trying to nurture their own relationships,” said Rosie Bowie, who operates Wellington dating agency, MatchCompany. Mrs Bowie is also appearing at the seminar and is co-author of a recently published book on dating and relationships, “Heart Rules”.

Also appearing at the seminar is Janice Davies, a Life Success Coach and attitude specialist from Auckland who is well known as a speaker and teacher on relationship issues.

“there are major obstacles for couples who are trying to sustain healthy relationships in an increasingly frenetic world, pressures that often didn’t exist even 10 or 15 years ago,” Mrs Bowie says. “We think the seminar offers some useful answers to the questions that are commonly asked these days.”

The seminar is held in the conference room above the Wellington Brewery, Cable Street Wellington.

Gordon Campbell: On The New Pike River Agency (And The Air Strike Wing)

Much of the sympathy the public still feels for the families of the Pike River miners has been sustained by the sense that the previous government – let alone the mining company and the processes of receivership and litigation – has never dealt honestly, or fairly, with them.

Finally, yesterday’s announcement by the Ardern government that a new state agency will be set up to assess and plan the manned re-entry to the mine (on a set timetable) goes a long way to meeting the families’ remaining request: that they be enabled, if at all possible, to bury their loved ones.
