The night will include great whiskey, delectable finger food and the inspirational story behind Sznicer's journey.
She worked her way up the ranks at the likes of Sportsgirl, Bras N Things and Glassons, before taking over the now award winning blow dry bar and tea house salon chain, Dry & Tea.
Sznicer is a passionate and dynamic speaker, with a lot to say about leadership, entrepreneurship and how she founded one of the most popular hair salon chains in Auckland. As well as Sznicer's talk, the event rounds off with a round of Dragon Den-style voting as entrepreneurs vie for the crowd's affection to win real money and to be featured in Idealog Magazine.
The event will be held at The Sapphire Room, Ponsonby Central, 4 Brown Street, Ponsonby, Auckland on Tuesday 28 July. Arrive at 6pm and mingle for a bit; kick off is at 6.30pm.
