Congratulations to Sir Gordon Tietjens on being appointed coach of the Samoa Sevens Rugby Team. We all know their exciting style of play and look forward to seeing their progress under their new coach! Sir Gordon takes up this post in January 2017 and good news that he's still available for speaking engagements!
Emma Gee will be in Auckland and Hamilton in March 2017 - she is available for other speaking engagements while she is here so be sure to take advantage of not having to pay Tasman airfares!
Be sure to check out Graeme Kendall and his recent book To the Ice & Beyond - www.iceandbeyond.com - an enthralling story of sailing the Northwest Passage solo and unassisted!
We pay special tribute to Sir Gordon Tietjens and thank him for his tireless work in NZ Rugby Sevens and developing the game to reach the International status it has today! Apart from being a wonderful NZ ambassador, his contribution to making a difference to the lives of many fine young NZ men is simply huge, providing them with an opportunity to achieve to their full potential … there’s no greater reward than this for a coach / leader. We wish Gordon well for whatever lies ahead!
What a fantastic display of New Zealand sporting talent over the recent Olympic and Paralympic Games - huge thanks to these amazing athletes who train so hard to live their dream, to represent their country and to make New Zealand proud - they surely achieved all of that and more in Rio!
Our Olympic rowing Champions have done it again! ... congratulations to Hamish Bond and Eric Murray winning gold at the Rio Olympics - they maintain their unbeaten record and once again make NZ proud!
Congratulations to Glen Osborne graduating from the NZ Police college. When he was growing up he always wanted to be in the black jersey, but ever since, he's wanted to join the police. It's been a big challenge and despite being a late starter, he finished in the top three in all the fitness tests.

If you seriously want to grow your business, take a look at Big Business Thinking Forums. These mornings are only held 4 times a year and if the one I attended this week is anything to go by, the standard of format, speakers and content was right up there with the best of any we've attended. Be sure to keep an eye on their website http://www.bigthinkingbusiness.com/ for programme updates.
