Governance Professionals 21 and 22 January 2021

Steve and Vern are fantastic facilitators with great knowledge and experience. The workshop was just the right amount of formal and informal discussion. The range of experience in the room from other governance professionals was the icing on the cake. Rebecca Williams, Central Otago District Council

A great opportunity for all in local government governance roles – from newbies to those of long service. Everyone has something to learn. Don’t reinvent wheels – ask someone they are always willing to help.  Janie Storey, Whakatane District Council

The experience of Steve and Vern within the sector is invaluable. The representation from all councils varying in size. Karla Brotherston, Gore District Council
