Networking is one of the many reasons our members value the Chamber, and this event offers you the opportunity to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere with other members, suppliers and potentially even some customers.

Connect over your eagle putt that just lipped out, or take consolation in the fact that it’s just a game and what matters is the taking part.

The Annual Golf Tournament is a semi-competitive event, with great prizes to be won. Sure, the competition can get intense, but Ambrose rules mean that it is suitable for everyone from Lydia Ko (still waiting to hear back if she can make it this year) to John in Accounts.

Asantha Wijeyeratne’s entrepreneurial journey began as a 22-year-old migrant with 500 US dollars in his pocket; now he is the CEO and major shareholder of a NZX listed company.

Join in for the second Connect session, Pivot! We will hear from Asantha, a 2021 finalist for Entrepreneur of the Year – and how his obsession with customer care over everything else was the pillar of the successful businesses he has helped build. How he went from semi retiring in 2014, to starting a tech company that is now a market leader. And finally, what the last 18 months have taught him about entrepreneurial vision.

In partnership with BNZ and St John’s Bar & Eatery these sessions offer a prime opportunity to escape the cold weather, enjoy connecting with other like-minded professionals and hear from an inspiring speaker.
