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.
