About this event

Join us at our next Asia After Five at the Asia New Zealand Foundation Te Whītau Tūhono's Wellington office.

We will hear from a panel featuring two former business interns, Sophia Faure and Daryn Govender.

Sophia, a member of the Foundation’s Leadership Network, completed an internship with the WHO in Manila and now works as a private secretary to the Associate Minister of Health, Dr Ayesha Verrall.  Daryn interned under the Foundation’s business internship programme at KPMG in Vietnam and now works for Reserve Bank New Zealand in Wellington.

We'll be reflecting on what impacts these internships have had, how they've added to their careers, and advice they have for others thinking of embarking on a similar path.

Join us for drinks and nibbles from 5:30pm. It is a free event, but please RSVP for catering purposes.
