At each of our events we capture our speakers and the connections that happen through video and photography. Below you can view each of our guest speakers from each Seed Waikato event - this way if you weren’t able to make it you can still hear those gold nuggets.

In the last central government election, 30% of young people that could vote, didn't. Why do we believe voting is a choice, rather than a responsibility as a citizen of Aotearoa? Our October event, Political Punch, gave you the opportunity to get to know the attitudes, beliefs and behaviour of our political parties.

September 2018 marked our 1-year anniversary (woohooo), and we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than bringing the incredibly inspirational speaker and global change-maker, Daniel Flynn, to our mighty region to share a story of disruptive innovation. We all desire to be remarkable. And the thing is, with innovation and dedication, we can be.
