Event to celebrate, inspire and connect Waikato women

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.

“Here at 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 Calder said.
“Women of Waikato will be a great way for everyone involved to connect, share and celebrate the success of women in our region.”

Gordon Campbell: On The Perils Of Using PPPs To Meet Auckland’s Roading Needs

More than once, the coalition government has ruled out using public private partnerships (PPPs) to fund the country’s infrastructure needs in health and education – apparently private profiteering in those areas is recognised as being undesirable. Not the same story though with transport, and the reasons for that differential treatment are mystifying. Earlier today, Transport Minister Phil Twyford announced that one of two new roads that the government would be co-financing would be a PPP – namely, the Penlink project that will link the northern motorway to the Whangaparaoa Peninsula.
