Our Spring lunch featured a great mix of listed members and new faces…we were treated to not only lovely daffodils from our Chair, Marnie, but heard of the wonderful skills and services of Ally Mccullagh from Mccullagh Consulting.

Ally explained about her upcoming series of events, “The Physical Leadership” program and gave away generous business card draw prizes.

“The Physical Leadership training program is about the impact of your physicality in leadership and how your physical presence impacts those around you.  So it is a course about body language but it is also much more than that. This course will open up your mind to a whole new way of thinking and learning and transform your ability to lead and engage others.”

This new feature of our monthly lunches allows one listed member to showcase their business, in addition to the networking time at the start of the lunch and the introductions from those in attendance, it’s another way for us to get to know each other and to highlight the great work we do.

Look out for your invitation to the October lunch!


This month featured Helen Griffiths from The Rumpus Room.

One the most amazing things about our members is that many of them have experience, education and skills from other parts of their career that they then put into practice in their current businesses and roles.  Helen is no exception.  She channelled her previous experience and education in speech and communication to help us learn to blow our own horns, and understand the role of the messenger, the receiver and the message.  We all learned practical ways we can begin putting these ideas into practice in our our businesses.


Those in attendance were inspired by our fabulous panelists.  These local leaders have created careers and businesses that contribute to Taranaki in amazing ways.  Well done to all involved!
