Wendy Thompson’s first years in business were full of senior marketers and CEOs telling her that “social media is just a fad”. She persevered.
Now, the firm she founded – Socialites – is the largest specialist social media organisation in New Zealand. And like the growth of social media she shows no signs of slowing down, recently featuring in the 2015 Deloitte Fast 50 and Tech Asia Pacific.
The event – in association with Institute of Management New Zealand and Idealog – is an opportunity for young professionals to engage in a roundtable discussion with Wendy, learn and discuss how she dealt with the challenges of creating a business that didn’t have any other companies to emulate, and glean some true leadership insights that will help young professionals thrive in the ever-changing business environment. For start-up entrepreneurs, Wendy will venture in to how you can use social media to validate your business ideas.
Drinks & nibbles will start from 5.30pm, with the workshop starting from 6pm.
When: Thu, May. 12, 2016 5:30pm
Venue: Institute of Management New Zealand, Level 4, DLA Piper Fox Tower, 205 Queen Street, Auckland
