A Business Summit being held in Hamilton in early February will help business leaders set the scene for the year ahead, according to its organisers.
The Waikato Business Summit 2018, on February 8, is a joint collaboration between ANZ, BDO Waikato, Chartered Accountants NZ, and Xero. The summit will be located in the Pacific Crystal Palace on the Governor’s Lawn in the Hamilton Gardens.
The event will see key industry figures speak about changing times in central government, local government, the economy and business practices.
BDO Waikato managing director Bernard Lamusse said it was important for businesspeople to hear outstanding speakers and to spend time networking with each other to rejuvenate their businesses.
“This is an excellent opportunity for business people to get together at the beginning of the year, hear some exciting new ideas and trends to enable them to plan for the year ahead” Mr Lamusse said.
“We have an outstanding line-up of speakers who will offer valuable insight into our local and global economies and will contribute to discussions about key issues facing our region in terms of business growth,” he said.
Key speakers include a representative from the global business Amazon, who will speak about changes made within its business and how it will have an impact on your business.
Hamilton City Council’s general manager city growth Kelvyn Eglinton will talk about changes to local government and give us an insight into what is happening in Hamilton and the impact on local business.
ANZ Economist Phil Borkin will address changes in the economy and discuss what to expect for the coming year.
Various other speakers will also discuss the impact of new central government policies on businesses.
