Speak­ing on ad­ven­ture

Waihi Leader - - News -

Kiwi ad­ven­turer Kevin Big­gar will speak at the Hau­raki-Coro­man­del Busi­ness Awards Gala later this month.

Big­gar has won the gru­elling Trans-At­lantic row­ing race, com­pleted the first un­sup­ported trek by Ki­wis to the South Pole, and hosted NZ in­trepid jour­ney re­al­ity TV show First Cross­ings.

He knows the ins and outs of hard work as part of his pro­fes­sional experience.

The ad­ven­turer is also a mo­ti­va­tional speaker at in­dus­try con­fer­ences and cor­po­rate events through­out New Zealand and Aus­tralia.

“I talk about how to take on large chal­lenges, im­prove team­work, men­tal tough­ness and about how to get the most out of your­self and your team,

“There’s no jar­gon, no sug­ary self-help dou­ble-speak — just real frame­works and prac­ti­cal tech­niques that leave you energised and more ef­fec­tive in your work and life,” he says.

Awards spokesper­son Mark Milmine says the team is excited to have se­cured Kevin to share his ex­pe­ri­ences and in­sights with the lo­cal busi­ness com­mu­nity.

“To do the things Kevin’s done takes ded­i­ca­tion, stamina, lead­er­ship and a whole lot of sheer grit, which are all traits ap­pli­ca­ble to the chal­lenges faced in busi­ness,” he says.

En­tries in all cat­e­gories of the 2018 Hau­raki-Coro­man­del Busi­ness Awards are now closed. Fi­nal­ists will be an­nounced next week and the win­ners will be an­nounced at the Awards Gala Evening on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 27 at Grand Mer­cure Puka Park Re­sort Pauanui. ■ Tick­ets for the Gala Event are now on sale and are avail­able on the Hau­raki-Coro­man­del Busi­ness Awards web­site www.hau­ra­ki­coro­man­del­busi­ness awards.co.nz/awards-gala
