Date: Friday 7 June

Time: 8.30am – 1pm

Venue: Forum North


The EventBusiness Mix 2019 offers a half day of unique insights and forward-thinking ideas from some of the most inspiring leaders in business.  We want our attendees to leave with their own ‘lightbulb moments’ that can be applied back to their own business in order to innovate, grow and become more successful.


The day will start with coffee on arrival and halfway through a sumptuous morning tea will be served.  The day will end with a panel discussion with our speakers and questions from the audience.

Last year’s Business Mix was a huge success and shows the appetite for this type of event, which covers a strategic mix of topics that are important to ensure future success and growth.


We have secured three inspiring speakers for this year’s event including Rod Oram, Journalist and Media Commentator, Peter Carr Director of Market Development – EROAD, Greg Pasco Head of HR Westpac.

She has a wealth of experience in both public and private sectors and has worked extensively with regional stakeholders, Māori, local and central government to build resilient and strong communities through projects traversing infrastructure, digital, skills and capability, land and water, tourism and high-value manufacturing.

Peter Carr –

Director, Regulatory Market Development Australia New Zealand, EROAD Ltd

Road transport is one of the Norths most divisive topics, but whether or not you are a rail supporter or road, it is hard to imagine positive gains for the North without significant improvements to the road transportation sector. Peter Carr’s insights into the many elements affecting this key infrastructure is a must ‘listen’.
