Thursday 8 November, 2018
We closed 2018 with our Auckland Directors’ Breakfast event on the topic of Disruption.
Bold, young business leaders are dynamic, digitally-driven and socially conscious. Our exceptional panel had a conversation on how they are disrupting and thriving from opportunities in a connected world. Check out the below video.

Robett has founded multiple businesses in the media industry, a shared workspace business called ColabNZ and most recently acquired the New Zealand Innovation Council & the New Zealand Innovation Awards - launching a $50m initiative to help more kiwis win in business.
Lillian Grace is the Founder and CEO of Figure.NZ, the first organisation in the world to make data usable for everyone. Lillian, winner of the Most Inspiring Award at the NZ Hi-tech Awards 2018, brings a new perspective on data, one where data is a language in which everyone can be fluent.
Alex McCall is the Co-Founder of Choice – a Kiwi start-up that is revolutionising payments using NEM blockchain. He is a disruptor and one not to settle for the status quo.
