An Evening with Hillary Rodham Clinton events in NZ and Aus

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton confirmed to visit Auckland, Melbourne and Sydney

Leading Australian business events provider, The Growth Faculty, brings Secretary Clinton to New Zealand and Australia for a series of three exclusive and intimate events, to take place in May 2018. The events are a part of The Growth Faculty’s Women World Changers speaker series.

Secretary Clinton will provide her personal insights into the 2016 US presidential election, its aftermath and what the future holds, sharing stories from her New York Times bestseller, What Happened.

“From lawyer and activist, to first lady, senator, secretary of state and first female presidential candidate of a major American political party, Secretary Clinton’s extraordinary career and story of resilience is one that business leaders and the wider community will find both fascinating and inspiring,” says The Growth Faculty Managing Director, Karen Beattie.

The Growth Faculty is releasing exclusive, first-access tickets for An Evening with Hillary Rodham Clinton taking place in Auckland (Monday 7 May 2018), Melbourne (Thursday 10 May 2018) and Sydney (Friday 11 May 2018).

First-access tickets are only available via www.thegrowthfaculty.com from 9.30am (AEDT) Monday 19 February 2018, for a limited time, ahead of general release*.

Following the US presidential election which dominated headlines around the world, Secretary Clinton will share with audiences the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party.

In an election marked by rage, sexism, misogyny, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules, Secretary Clinton gives a candid account of what happened and what’s next.

Following the first-access release by The Growth Faculty, a limited number of tickets will be available from ticketing partners Ticketmaster (Auckland event) and Ticketek (Sydney event)*.

Previous events presented by The Growth Faculty have included headline speakers Simon Sinek, Malcom Gladwell, Jim Collins, Valerie Jarrett and George Clooney.
