Mentor & Muffin Series
Fri 28 April 2017, 7:30 AM – 8:30 AM NZST
Introducing the Mentor & Muffin Series!
Early morning inspiration and useful tips from successful entrepreneurs
Come and join us on the last Friday of every month for three months, starting April, for a motivational shot in the arm (and we’re not just talking the caffeine) with the new Mentor & Muffin Series.
Each Friday morning a successful business person shares their story and their biggest lesson. Followed by a Q&A session, where you get to interrogate them and ask about the things you really want to know.
Each session promises to leave you with something valuable you can apply to your own business right away.
Good coffee, a good muffin (gluten free options of course!), good company and a good story to learn from. What better way to start your day!
