FARMING Women Tairawhiti kick off their year with the annual Mix and Mingle event at The Vines, Bushmere Estate, on March 7 and the guest speaker will be Allison Mooney, author of the bestselling book, Pressing the Right Buttons.

“We are beyond excited to announce we have secured Allison as our speaker,” executive committee member Kristin Kirkpatrick said.

“Allison sports many professional speaking accolades, including New Zealand Speakers Association Speaker of the Year on three occasions, and a tremendous number of positive testimonials.”

Ms Mooney has worked with more than 300 companies covering 70 industries in more than 20 countries.

“She has earned the title ‘The People Interpreter’ through her work in transforming relationships and dealing with people, regardless of what organisation they are in,” Mrs Kirkpatrick said.

“She enables people to gain a better understanding of those around them through respect and by celebrating differences, and she does it while drilling down into understanding individuals and what motivates them and how to communicate.

“As a committee we felt securing a speaker like Allison would be a great follow on from our previous two big focus days, Soil to Soul, and Passion to Profit.

“Both days had a lot of positive personal impact for many members and we want to continue to foster confidence and provide opportunities for growth.”

She said Farming Women Tairawhiti was currently revisiting its strategic planning.

“We have found there has been so much progress for us as a charitable organisation since we began four years ago.

“Over that time our vision has evolved and is now to enable rural women to connect and thrive. Allison Mooney sure does fit that perfectly.

“Her message will not only resonate with our members but also the wider community, so we thought it would be great to extend an invitation to all women in our region to attend.

“So please join us for what will be a highly inspirational and entertaining evening.”

The event gets under way at 6pm on March 7.

Tickets can be purchased until March 1 from www.eventfinda.co.nz
