Literacy & Communication Skills - Workplace education

Member Event Post

Are low language, literacy and numeracy abilities in your workforce impacting on your business?

Low employee literacy and communication skills (including low levels of English language) undermine efforts to improve performance and productivity, and will be impacting your bottom line.

To counteract this, the government provides the Workplace Literacy Fund to provide training in speaking and listening skills as well as reading, writing and maths at your workplace. This is free of charge for eligible learners. Come to our seminar and hear how it all works – illustrated with a case study from an organisation that has run a number of literacy programmes in their workplace. Find out about the programme and the results.

Training Provider: Edvance Workplace Education
Edvance currently enjoys the highest rating of Category 1 from NZQA, and are committed to providing quality programmes delivered in the workplace. The team from Edvance
will be able to explain the government funding available and to answer any questions you may have around supporting your staff for this training.

Date: Friday 26 July 2019 Venue: Business North Harbour, 12 Parkway Drive, Rosedale
Time: 10.30am – 12.30pm
Cost: Free, but registration is necessary for catering purposes.

Communicate with Confidence

It is with great pleasure we announce a return of one of our favourite speakers - Laurie Sharp. He is joining us to talk about communication. Following is a little more about Laurie and what this Business Capability workshop will cover:

Starting in banking 40 years ago, my current role is Head of Coaching and Development at ASB.

My prime focus is on people development, leadership and professional (emotional/soft) skills. These range but are not limited to coaching and leadership, presentation and communication, negotiating, networking, changing business trends and business development.

I conduct seminars and workshops, 70% of which are to external clients, prospects or professionals as part of a programme of deepening relationships and increasing business development opportunities. The other part of my role is focussed on the development of our own people at ASB.

My wife Kathie and I have been married, for 41 years, and are kept busy with three adult children and six grandchildren.

Communicate with confidence…and be memorable

Will your audience remember what you said in a meeting or presentation? How many people take the action you were hoping for? We all communicate, but often our message doesn’t hit the mark. In this session we share six simple keys to effective communication that will give you confidence, and help you deliver a memorable message.

› Preparation is critical (presenting well is a differentiator in today’s business world)
› How to structure your presentation
› The power of body language and using your voice
› Visual impact (keeping audience interest)

Sustainability in Business

Business Lunches

It is with great pleasure we announce a Luncheon with Green Party co-leader James Shaw. He is joining us to talk about Sustainability in Business.

Green Party Co-leader James Shaw strongly believes that New Zealand can lead the world in transitioning to a high-value, clean-tech, post-carbon economy that works for everyone.

He knows it’s a hugely ambitious, probably decades-long task, but it’s the reason he’s committed to a life in politics and one of the many reasons joined the Green Party in 1990. James was appointed Green Party Co-leader on May 30, 2015, after being elected to Parliament as a list MP in 2014.

Prior to becoming an MP, James had a successful career in management consulting, primarily in London, where he lived from 1998 to 2010. While there, he worked with large, multinational companies across Europe and around the world, developing their sustainable business practices. It was while James was in the UK, studying for a Master’s degree in sustainable development and business leadership, that he realised that the private sector alone wasn’t able to affect change at the speed and scale necessary to meet the great challenges of our time.

With that realisation also came a call to action, and James moved back to Wellington, the city where he was born and raised, with the aim of being elected to Parliament.

James believes that, with vision and purpose, politicians can bring the large-scale, transformational change that is needed to build a truly inclusive economy, and a healthier planet. His diverse business experience and expertise, from working for multinational corporates through to local start-ups and community organisations, will enable him to lead the Green Party and New Zealanders towards a high-tech post-carbon economy and society.

It might be the biggest challenge of a generation, but James also sees it as the greatest opportunity: he wants New Zealand to lead the way and show the world how it’s done.

Big Issues in Business
Member Event Post
Massey Business School experts take the latest research and examine how it can help you solve the big issues your business faces. Our experts and guest speakers share their experience and knowledge in an series of free events where you can join the discussion around the topical issues we’re confronted with in business today.

The Government is committed to putting people’s wellbeing at the heart of its policies, including reporting against a wider set of wellbeing indicators. The broader set of indicators aim to show a more rounded measure of success, recognising that a country’s prosperity needs to be shared in order to allow for growth and social mobility, but also to maximise the innovative potential of the economy. Currently we don’t have a measure for shared prosperity, or a consensus on what this actually means. Hear the latest research from Massey Business School on a Shared Prosperity Index – identifying the dimensions that form the basis of how a society fairly shares its prosperity, and how reducing barriers to opportunity can be a key factor in enhancing economic growth.

There will be a 30-minute networking opportunity with light refreshments at the beginning of each event.

Hady Wenham - Women in Business
Women in Business
We are delighted that Hady Wenham is our speaker for the first Women in Business event of 2019.

Hady Wenham is the founder of Forme Spa & Wellbeing. She has built the business from a single location 17 years ago, into New Zealand’s largest day spa group with 10 spas in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch. During this time she’s learned how to scale a business, the importance of procedures, living by the numbers, and has grown it into a successful business that looks after tens of thousands of customers each year.

In addition to Forme Spa & Wellbeing, sister company Spa Solutions imports the prestigious brands of Bioelements and Deborah Lippmann from America, Babor from Germany, Synergie from Australia.

Hady has a background in marketing and advertising prior to commencing the business, so the power of branding has been a key part of the success story and as a result, Forme Spa is a highly recognised and trusted brand in the industry.

Hady has also juggled setting up her business with raising two kids, one who was only 2 years old at the start of the business and the other was born a year later, both teenagers now. Never one to sit quietly, there are many new developments on the horizon and planned for the future for Hady and her business.
