Waikato busi­ness­women con­nect

Waikato News - - NEWS -

A panel of suc­cess­ful Waikato busi­ness­women will speak at an up­com­ing event that aims to in­spire oth­ers through tales of tri­umphs and chal­lenges in busi­ness.

PR com­pany Dy­namic Me­dia is col­lab­o­rat­ing with law firm Tomp­kins Wake to bring the first Women of Waikato event to the re­gion on May 17, at the scenic Wood­lands Es­tate.

The all-day event aims to help cre­ate and foster long-term re­la­tion­ships be­tween women in busi­ness, and to cel­e­brate in­spi­ra­tional Waikato women whose stories will act as a cat­a­lyst to en­cour­age and mo­ti­vate oth­ers.

“I know only too well what it’s like to spend a lot of time work­ing in the busi­ness as op­posed to on the busi­ness. Throw into the mix fam­ily com­mit­ments and well, it’s easy to feel over­whelmed by all the de­mands on our time,” di­rec­tor of Dy­namic Me­dia Dani Simp­son said.

“That’s why I think tak­ing a day out for our­selves now and then is im­por­tant. The event is an op­por­tu­nity to re­flect, re­group, to chal­lenge your think­ing, be in­spired to dream big and grow, as well as meet new peo­ple.”

The five speak­ers are Raglan Co­conut Yo­ghurt co-founder Late­sha Ran­dall, plain lan­guage writ­ing trainer Shelly Davies, yoga teacher, pho­tog­ra­pher and leather cre­ations ar­ti­san Kay Buchanan, REALiv­ing coach and men­tor Tracey Han­cock and long­time co­me­dian Jan-Ma­ree Fran­ice­vic whose re­silience and busi­ness brain will wow the au­di­ence.

“I be­lieve in build­ing your tribe — sur­round­ing your­self with sup­port­ers who are like­minded and de­ter­mined peo­ple that you gel with, and peo­ple you can col­lab­o­rate with,” Simp­son said.

“Here at Dy­namic Me­dia, we know first-hand how im­por­tant it has been to build our tribe and I credit many women for help­ing build our busi­ness and grow the con­fi­dence and be­lief in our­selves that we have what it takes to suc­ceed.”

Ms Simp­son said she looks for­ward to see­ing the new re­la­tion­ships and col­lab­o­ra­tions that are sure to come from this event.

Premier event spon­sor Tomp­kins Wake also be­lieves in the power of col­lab­o­ra­tion and that ex­cep­tional out­comes can be cre­ated through team­ing up with oth­ers.

“Tomp­kins Wake is de­lighted to sup­port this fan­tas­tic event recog­nis­ing the strength and suc­cess of women in the Waikato. Our cul­ture is fu­elled by the di­ver­sity of our team and our peo­ple’s back­grounds, cul­tures, ex­pe­ri­ences and skills fuel fresh think­ing, new ideas and unique perspectives,” Tomp­kins Wake chief ex­ec­u­tive Jon Calder said.

“Women of Waikato will be a great way for ev­ery­one in­volved to con­nect, share and cel­e­brate the suc­cess of women in our re­gion.”
