Event to celebrate, inspire and connect Waikato
women in business
A panel of successful Waikato businesswomen are set to speak at an upcoming event that aims to inspire others through tales of triumphs and challenges in business.
PR company Dynamic Media is collaborating with law firm Tompkins Wake to bring the very first Women of Waikato event to the region on May 17, at the scenic Woodlands Estate.
The all-day event aims to help create and foster long-term relationships between women in business, and to celebrate inspirational Waikato women whose stories will act as a catalyst to encourage and motivate others.
“I know only too well what it's like to spend a lot of time working in the business as opposed to on the business. Throw into the mix family commitments and well, it's easy to feel overwhelmed by all the demands on our time,” director of Dynamic Media, Dani Simpson said.
“That's why I think taking a day out for ourselves now and then is important. The event is an opportunity to reflect, regroup, to challenge your thinking, be inspired to dream big and grow, as well as meet new people.”
The five speakers set to take to the stage are Raglan Coconut Yoghurt co-founder Latesha Randall; rockstar plain language writing trainer Shelly Davies; yoga teacher, photographer and leather creations artisan Kay Buchanan; REALiving coach and mentor Tracey Hancock, and long-time comedian Jan-Maree Franicevic whose resilience and business brain will wow the audience.
“I believe in building your tribe - surrounding yourself with supporters who are like-minded and determined people that you gel with, and people you can collaborate with,” Simpson said.
Dynamic Media, we know first-hand how important it has been
to build our tribe and I credit many women for helping build
our business and grow the confidence and belief in ourselves
that we have what it takes to succeed.”
Simpson said she looks forward to seeing the new relationships and collaborations that are sure to come from this event.
Premier event sponsor Tompkins Wake also believes in the power of collaboration and that exceptional outcomes can be created through teaming up with others.
Tompkins Wake is delighted to support this fantastic event recognising the strength and success of women in the Waikato.
“Our culture is fuelled by the diversity
of our team and our people’s backgrounds, cultures,
experiences and skills fuel fresh thinking, new ideas and
unique perspectives,” Tompkins Wake chief executive Jon
“Women of Waikato will be a great way for everyone involved to connect, share and celebrate the success of women in our region.”
