Quality speakers for Hastings Leadership Week events

Leading scientist Sir Ray Avery is the guest speaker at the Mayoral Leadership Summit which is part of a strong lineup of events that make up the Sir Peter Blake Leadership Week 2013 in Hastings.

Hastings Mayor Lawrence Yule says “The theme of Leadership Week is ‘Dare to Dream’. It was Sir Peter Blake who showed New Zealand that there are leaders and there are dreamers. He said ‘leaders make things happen; dreamers have a vision’. Our guest speakers are all leaders in their chosen fields, and their vision will provide inspiration to all who attend the sessions.”

Leadership Week in Hastings begins on Monday July 8th and finishes with Red Socks Day on Friday July 12th, when everyone is encouraged to wear red socks in support of the Sir Peter Blake Trust.

Gordon Campbell: On Last Night’s Debate, And The Collins Accusation

Debating is a peculiar discipline in that what you say is less important than how you’re saying it. Looking poised, being articulate and staying on topic generally wins the day – and on that score, Labour leader David Cunliffe won what turned out to be a bruising encounter with Prime Minister John Key last night on TVNZ.

Cunliffe marshalled his points better, kept Key off balance and – more often than not – was in control of the general tenor of the contest. Labour supporters would have been heartened, and given some belated reassurance that maybe the change of leadership last year had been the right decision. More>>

From The Scoop Video Archive: PM Says SIS "Told Me" About OIA Release

In a press conference immediately following an controversial OIA release of notes on an SIS briefing to then Labour leader Phil Goff, Key said "at that point [Tucker] told me he'd release it ...".
