Inspirational speakers for Leadership Week in Hastings

An inspiring group of guest speakers will take the stage in Hastings next week as part of Leadership Week 2013.

Leadership Week 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.

The week opens with the Women in Business breakfast, where BEL Group Business Manager Justine Kidd takes a fascinating look into the world of women in business. On Friday July 12th, one of the country’s leading scientists Sir Ray Avery will speak on “Growing Great New Zealanders” at the Mayoral Leadership Summit.

Hastings Mayor Lawrence Yule says “I am excited by the quality of the speakers at this year’s Leadership Week events. These influential people have all found a way of making a difference to the way we live our lives and I am sure their message will inspire all those who attend the seminars to achieve greater things in their own lives.”

Lawrence Yule says “It is also important that we honour the legacy that was left to this country by Sir Peter Blake. Sir Peter was enormously fond of wearing his red socks for good luck during Americas Cup campaigns and now red socks have become the symbol of Kiwi Spirit and pride. Wearing your red socks on Friday July 12th will help recognise the spirit that Sir Peter Blake showed during his life and showing support for the work of the Sir Peter Blake Trust.”

Gaza.Scoop: UNRWA School, Ambulances Attacked - Gaza MOH

The Ministry of Health Gaza expresses its horror and outrage at the latest Israeli massacre moments ago at an UNRWA school sheltering displaced persons in Beit Hanoun. Ten people have been killed and there is a large number of wounded. More>>

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
