BNZ to Host Samoa Business Network Networking Evening

Press release

26th October, 2012

BNZ to Host Fledgling Samoa Business Network Second Networking Evening

After the great success of the inaugural Samoa Business Networking evening, BNZ Manukau is hosting the second networking evening on Wednesday 31st October 2012 at 6.00pm.

Spokesman for Samoanz Limited and one of the main movers of this initiative, Rasmus Pereira, is excited about the growing awareness of the fledgling Samoa Business Network and BNZ Manukau’s continuing support for such an initiative, “The last networking evening could not have happened without Laura Keil-Hall and her team at BNZ Manukau agreeing to host the event”, he said “BNZ Manukau’s continuing support is exciting for the Samoa Business Network because it sends a message to the fledgling Samoan business community that they have a stake in the economy of not only South Auckland but the wider Auckland region and the country at large”

The Samoa Business Network is delighted to confirm that exciting new author of the Telesa Trilogy books series, Lani Wendt Young, will be the key note speaker. She follows on from the great success of Stella Muller, the mastermind behind Hot Samoan Boys Chilli sauce in the first networking evening, who talked about making use of unconventional marketing opportunities. Lani will be talking on the effect of social media in business.

Lani was born and raised in Samoa and was a High School English Literature teacher for 7 years. However, her underlying passion was writing. In 2009, she was commissioned by Hans Joachim Keil to research and write the narrative fiction book ‘Pacific Tsunami: Galu Afi’. All profits of the book went towards assisting tsunami survivors. She turned to full time writing in 2010, and soon after her collection of short stories ‘Sleepless in Samoa’ won the USP Press Fiction Award in 2011. She wrote stories for children that are used in primary school reading programs. In October 2011, she launched the first book of the highly successful Telesa trilogy of urban fantasy novels, ‘Telesa: the Covenant Keeper’. In July 2012, the second book in the series was launched, ‘Telesa: When Water Burns’.
