Are you sitting on a valuable investment in your own backyard?

First Speakers (20-30 minutes): Jennifer Myers,a senior architect at Fat Parrot Architecture and Claudine Osborne, a resource planner and environmental engineer from R20 Consultants Ltd are skilled in communication with the council in relation to any property with potential sub-division options under the recently changed unitary plan.They can then organize the Consents required and communicate with Council during their processing.

Together they offer a one stop shop package to evaluate a site, prepare a plan showing what is likely to be given Consent and to then prepare the necessary Consent applications on behalf of property owners.

Details: Their topics will include site checks/zone issues etc.

  1. When considering if you can subdivide your property, or if you can build a second dwelling on it, you need to consider both the physical nature of the site and the planning regulations governing your use of it. Jennifer and Claudine will make property owners broadly aware of some of the aspects they need to consider when thinking of subdividing their property or putting another dwelling onto their site.
  2. They will provide a brief commentary on some of the main things that need to be considered when evaluation your site, both in relation to the physical aspects of the site (e.g. flood plains, public drainage, contours etc) and the planning rules that apply to the site (e.g. density rules, building height etc).

Speaker two (10-15 minutes): Michael McCook from AccountabilityNet. Michael founded AccountabilityNet in 1996. The practice has grown tremendously over the years, yet retains the personal, approachable character which is the cornerstone of the business. Entrepreneurially minded, Michael understands the joys and frustrations of property ownership well and is a staunch advocate for small business in New Zealand.

Details: Michael will discuss tax structures etc. as they relate to property investment.

  • Best positioning, airway management, environment such as warmth
  • Managing a conscious patient,
  • (who is feeling faint, having difficulty breathing, etc)

Basic Life Support Workshop
St John

This event has now closed as we've reached capacity. Please email admin@businessh.org.nz should you wish to attend an upcoming workshop. 

Spaces are limited to only 20 people. The course will be repeated if demand exceeds available places.

This course teaches you essential life-saving skills.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a life-saving technique that is used when someone's heart has stopped. Some medical conditions, such as a severe heart attack, can cause the heart to stop. Other causes include drowning, electric shock, poisoning, overdose and serious injury. For CPR to be successful, it needs to be started as soon as possible after a person's heart stops.

This course is ideal for anyone who wants to learn CPR; it also covers management of choking, bleeding and shock and helps your workplace to meet health and safety standards. This course includes assessment and leads to an NZQA unit standard.

This 4¼ hour course is a mixture of theory and practice. On completion, you will:

  • Know when and how to apply CPR for an adult, child and baby
  • know what to do if someone is choking
  • Manage serious bleeding until medical help arrives
  • Gain NZQA unit standard 6402 (or by special arrangement 26551). The NZQA unit 6402 can earn you a certificate towards Health and Safety.

Content covered in the workshop:

  • Scene safety
  • Calling an ambulance
  • CPR
  • Choking
  • Bleeding

Her story is one of a life turned upside down and the earth literally shaking under her feet. For a 5 year period, she went through more than most people do in a lifetime.
It all started with a small lump in 2011- from disbelief through catastrophe and death, Steph has rebuilt her life.

Boost your business with the Westpac Auckland Business Awards North 2016

Business North Harbour is excited to announce that we are supporting these awards through sponsorship of the Excellence in Strategy and Planning category. 

We are encouraging business owners to leverage value for their organisation through the additional profile and practical consultancy available throughout the entry and judging process.

Make the most of the chance to work on your business – and not just in it.  The entry process also provides support and peer review of your business – at no charge – so that you can continue to build on your business success.

The Strategy and Planning category resonates well with Business North Harbour – both as a sponsor and organisation.

Effective strategic planning puts a framework in place for business owners to control and measure their outputs, attract funding and secure new client relationships.  We know there are many examples of Excellence in Strategy and Planning north of the bridge and we want to encourage these businesses to enter.

However if you would rather celebrate success in other areas of your business, such as innovation, marketing, emerging business, international trade, customer service delivery, or employer of the year, then these categories are available also.
