IdealogLive returns, with Amy from Dry & Tea as star speaker

Mark Tuesday 28th July in your calendars and come join us for a great evening filled with fun, fabulous drinks and a nerve-wrecking pitching circle - at least for the entrepreneurs!

The fifth instalment of our IdealogLive event series of 2015 is happening, July 28!

There will be great whiskey, delectable finger food and the inspirational story of Amy Sznicer – owner of the Award Winning blow dry bar/tea house salon chain Dry & Tea. Amy is a passionate and dynamic speaker, with lots to say about leadership, high-performance and the retail business.

The evening caps off with a round of Dragon Den-style voting as entrepreneurs vie for your affections to win real money, and to be featured in IdealogMagazine.

The event will be held at The Sapphire Room, Ponsonby Central, 4 Brown Street, Ponsonby, Auckland. Arrive at 6pm and mingle for a bit; kick off is at 6.30pm.
