Wayne Densem, Business Breakfast Club Founder, says the club has enjoyed a successful first year and encourages local business people to take advantage of the exclusive opportunity to hear Humphreys speak.


“We are proud of Business Breakfast Club’s achievements over the last year. We have hosted some fantastic events and provided a forum for locals in business to grow and learn, and we look forward to continuing through the next year and beyond,”
says Densem.


“Having Laura in Nelson is significant. She has an incredibly inspiring story and is an engaging speaker who I highly recommend listening to - so if you’re interested in coming along, be quick to secure your tickets.”
