Entrepreneurs of all stripes are invited along to Q Theatre next month for Inspire Auckland, a day of presentations from successful entrepreneurs delivered by World Class New Zealand and AUT University for the local business and creative communities.
Speakers include Annabel Langbein, high-profile ex Air New Zealand CEO Rob Fyfe, Booktrack founder Paul Cameron, Kiwi Landing Pad director Catherine Robinson, and LanzaTech cofounder Sean Simpson,.
The sessions, including plenty of opportunity for feedback, will be moderated by writer and commentator David Slack.
World Class New Zealand director Stephen Dee says Inspire Auckland
has a unique line-up of Kiwi talent that will definitively prove
location is no barrier to enormous success on the global stage.
“Auckland has its share of hugely successful businesses, and is where most of the seed and growth capital is located – but we need a better marriage of the two,” he says. “We hope our speakers will spur discussion and debate on business and entrepreneurship – providing the spark that will propel our best and brightest to make their mark in the world.”
Two more Inspire events will happen in Christchurch and Wellington as well.
Get your tickets here (earlybird prices available until the end of April).
When: May 22
Where: Q Theatre, Queen St
