The evening will be focused on celebrating rural women, acknowledging those who work the land or those in the background who help support their business and our industry with their sound knowledge. Networking is vital in rural areas for providing both support and inspiration and allows new connections to be made with other like-minded women from across the region.
This will be a classy evening event featuring two inspirational women, local to rural Northland, who will share their story with you as well as special guest Allison Mooney – the people interpreter who is proudly sponsored by FMG Insurance.
The evening will be packed full of inspiration and fun with plenty of opportunities for women to network over a two-course meal prepared by Platinum Beef + Lamb New Zealand Chef, Brenton Low.
Please note: This is an alcohol free event.
