Olympian next Business Breakfast speaker

Rob Waddell has long been a role model for many New Zealanders and now Hawke’s Bay has a chance to hear from the man himself.

He is our final Napier Business Breakfast speaker for 2016, on Friday 9 December.

Rob burst onto the rowing scene in 1995 as a young sculler and was New Zealand’s only gold medallist at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. More recently, he played a key part in the Emirates Team New Zealand sailing crew. Earlier this year he was Chef de Mission of the Rio 2016 New Zealand Olympic team, helping lead us to our most successful Olympics ever.

Rob has travelled the often difficult road to personal, sporting and business achievement and he knows very well the techniques we can all use to enjoy greater success in our chosen pursuits. During his talk he will discuss the deep lows and massive highs he has experienced, the importance of goal-setting, what sport teaches us about perseverance, preparation, planning and management, as well as the roles determination, motivation, and self-talk play in pursuing a dream.

A role model, family-man and entrepreneur who is in constant pursuit of excellence, Rob is thrilled to take part in our Business Breakfast series here in Napier.

When: Friday 9 December 2016
Time: Arrive 7am for a light breakfast, Rob Waddell will begin speaking at 7.30am
Venue: MTG Century Theatre, Herschell Street, Napier
Cost: $20 per person

Bookings are essential. Register by Tuesday 6 December. Please click on the Business Breakfast page to register and pay by credit card.
