A Big Thank You

Every week I think things will slow down on the work front but no we continue to do more, work harder and strive for big things.  I want to say a huge THANK YOU to the Chamber team for their hard work.  I super appreciate their effort and I’m very grateful to have each one on this journey with me.  When I do my mindful grateful thing, my wonderful colleagues are up there, and when I feel like I haven’t been as productive as I want, I remind myself of my team.  Working remotely takes self-discipline and also requires...

Wow – Changing Times…

I know that we've all had our challenges during the last five weeks, some more than others. I've thought long about what my biggest challenge has been, as there have been a couple, but what stands out the most for me has not been able to hug my 85-year-old mum!  Mum & I are big huggers, so dropping her groceries off, seeing her, but maintaining a distance was heart-wrenching.

Meet Jeriel – The Newest Member of our Team

Kia Ora! My name is Jeriel Sajan & I have been a part of the Chamber team for just over a month now. What an amazing month it has been!

However, the transition into the chamber team was one of the easiest I have ever experienced.  The team’s visions & work practices...

YES Kickstart – Tick

The Hawke’s Bay Chamber team is still fizzing after Friday’s Young Enterprise Kickstart event! 220 year 12 & 13 students from across a number of secondary schools in Hawke's Bay attended Kickstart along with their teachers at Te Uranga Waka, EIT. A big shout out to the 40 or so business coaches from the Hawke’s Bay business community, who gave up a couple of hours of their day to come with a handful of teams and discuss the team's business idea. The role of a business coach is to help guide teams in the right direction at the beginning stages of their...

Art Deco

The people of Hawke’s Bay all know come mid-February our region will be transformed into the Art Deco era; however it is really Napier that is at the heart of this step back in time. Thousands of people descend on HB and the city of Napier buzzes with an influx of energy and a little bit of class. There are events for everyone of all ages. Some events are invite-only, others have a ticket price and some are free. I went to the opening Soiree on the beachfront in a marquee in front of the Napier War Memorial building. It was...
