Thrive Pasifika just around the corner

The Pacific Business Trust’s event of the year is just around the corner.

Thrive Pasifika is being held on March 14 and is inspiring people to pursue dreams. The event is an action packed day, showcasing Pacific peoples who have achieved success locally and internationally.

People often ask ” How did that guy get from delivering pamphlets for a living to running a successful business?” Many of us want to start the path to success but miss the opportunities letting fear dull our enthusiasm.

People like you and I have achieved and succeeded in all aspects of life because they dared to prosper. Do you dare to prosper? We want people to come to Thrive Pasifika and check out what all the talk is about.

Previous speakers at the event include the first Pacific Island Judge in New Zealand, A’e’au Judge Semi Epati, Founder of Black Grace Dance Group, Neil Ieremia, former Minister of Economic Development Hon Jim Anderton, Actor, Nathaniel Lees, New Zealand Top 10 Entrepreneur Murray Thom, Westfield Style Pasifika Supreme Award winner Lindah Lepou, Dawn Raid’s Danny Leaosavaii, Auckland NPC Coach Pat Lam and self-made millionaire Mike Pero.

Thrive Pasifika 2006 boasts the return of MC (Laughing with Samoans) comedian Tofiga Fepulea’i who will no doubt have participants in fits of laughter. Throughout the day eight keynote speakers will speak about their own experiences and how they were bold enough to leap to their success.

Thrive Pasifika is sponsored by Manukau City Council and Manukau Institute of Technology.

The cost to attend Thrive Pasifika is $55 per adult and $40 per student.
