Turning obstacles into opportunities.

Mid-Canterbury Rural Business Network focuses on turning obstacles into opportunities.

Rural business professionals in Mid-Canterbury will have an opportunity to develop their businesses and strengthen their networks with the second Mid-Canterbury Business Network event for 2015. Mid-Canterbury will host its second event for the year on 9 June at the Hotel Ashburton, Ashburton.

The Rural Business Network provides an opportunity for rural-based business people to participate in events that will help them grow their businesses through networking and learning from others. RBN aims to connect innovative, motivated people from across the range of primary industry sectors with successful, experienced businessmen and women creating opportunities to share ideas, be inspired and learn by example.

The Rural Business Network currently operates seven Hubs throughout New Zealand. RBN is free to join however there is usually a charge to attend each Hub’s quarterly get-togethers and events.

The June Mid-Canterbury RBN event will feature guest speaker, Mark Inglis. Mark lost his legs as a 23 year old mountaineer and was forced to rethink his career. Years on, the double amputee has summited Mt Everest (the only double amputee to do so), won medals at the Paralympics, began PeakFuel Sports Nutrition business and also founded the Limbs4All international charity.

As New Zealand farmers are faced with low payouts, droughts and the impending global food shortage Mark will speak to attendees on rethinking careers and turning obstacles into opportunities.

The Mid-Canterbury event will be held at the Hotel Ashburton, on 8 June from 6.45pm. Further information and tickets are available on the Rural Business Network’s website - www.ruralbusinessnetwork.co.nz
