News & Views – July 2019

Exciting news on the training front…very pleased to announce that we have received a grant from the Hospitality Training Trust to conduct some additional leadership trainings around the regions later in 2019…entitled “Roaming the Regions” there will be two workshops coming to a town near you….Creating a Wealth of Health in your Hospitality Business (presented by Belinda Donaldson) and Tips and Tricks for Engaging and Motivating your Team (presented by Marg Main)…

At this stage the schedule is still to be confirmed but some areas that we are looking to visit include Kaikoura, Blenheim, Nelson, Taranaki, Rotorua, Tauranga Gisborne, Wairarapa, Northland, Dunedin, Gore, Queenstown and Wanaka

Also just a quick reminder of some of the workshops that are available should you be looking to do some leadership training in house…all of these can be adapted to suit your requirements if necessary and are generally around 3.5 hours in length:
