Ms Cooney will presenting “Living in the Vortex” - We need to be able to “hover above” the current uncertainty to avoid being caught up in the sea of emotion and fear that can accompany it.

We have been lucky enough to secure the Anchorage Conference Room at the Whakatane Sport Fishing Club as our venue for this round of Women In Business. Just a stones throw from The Stand and right on the waters edge over looking the Whakatane River what a great location to bring in the summer. We can’t wait to see you there!

Lunch menu will be sent out for pre order prior to the event.
