Description

The Secret to Growth Through investing in Yourself and Your Business

Nope this is not a sales event - it is a networking event where we have four amazing CEO's who are giving their time to share their knowledge

After our sold-out events in October and Feb, we have been asked for more so we have upped our game and have an incredible lineup of speakers willing to lift the lid on their success and the success they have seen around them.

We pay for the Beers, Wines and Pizza - you Pay What You Want (PWYW) to hear the great speakers and learn.

We are bringing 4 more business leaders together to share their wisdom and strategies to achieve success.

Andy Hamilton - CEO of The Icehouse

Andy’s specialties include business growth, private equity and venture capital, internationalisation of technology ventures, research and development, and economic development. As CEO of the Icehouse and its journey, he is heavily involved in all these sectors including being on the board of ICE Angels, the Angel Network, on the investment committee for the Icehouse Startup Fund, is chair of the Angel Association New Zealand and is deputy chair of the Metro Project Innovation Group for Auckland.

Prior to joining the Icehouse, Andy was CEO and director of Inventure, Fletcher Building’s venture capital arm that he established in 1998. He was also a member of the Advisory Board of Unitec’s Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and chair of the Unitec Accelerator from 1999 to 2001.

Miriana Lowrie - CEO of One Centre

Highly motivated and driven, Miriana founded 1Centre as a result of supporting other businesses with setting up systems and processes in her spare time. She says: “I couldn’t quite figure out why opening accounts was so laboriously manual, repetitive and time consuming!” So she set out on a journey spanning more than two years to interview as many suppliers and business consumers as she could, about what their experiences were like with opening trade accounts. As a result, 1Centre came to life.

With over 20 years’ banking experience, a passion for making life easier for business (herself included), and a BBS in Management and Sales, she has all the right ingredients to roll her sleeves up and drive 1Centre forward.
