Seed Waikato Dreamshop: Unleashing your potential.jpg

Our Dreamshop is back, giving you an opportunity to learn practical skills from inspiring leaders in a facilitated workshop!

You, yes you, have potential worth pursuing. Worth unleashing. Worth sharing with the world. To celebrate TechWeek and Youth Week, this workshop is focused on unleashing your potential. Recognising it. Believing in it. Acting on it. And celebrating it.

Our three workshops are:

  1. Unleashing the dynamo within - Holly Bennett

  2. Igniting intentions to empower bold action - Amy McLean

  3. Tools for GROWING - Raewyn Kirkman

This is your opportunity to invest in yourself, meet new people, and consider how to grab the powerful possibilities that lie ahead for you.

If you're a tradie, creative, entrepreneur, professional, student, parent, volunteer, freelancer or anything in between, our events are a place for you to connect with new people, find inspiration, and learn something new.

Holly Bennett | HSB Government Relations | Government Relations Dynamo

Holly Suzanne Bennett (Te Arawa, Ngāti Whakaue, Ngāti Pikiao) is the founder of Waikato-based government relations firm  HSB Government Relations , a non-partisan firm with one goal: make political engagement simple.  In a nutshell her firm works to match businesses with all levels of New Zealand’s political ecosystem: Members of Parliament, Ministers, advisors, officials, regulators and everyone in between.  Since setting up, Holly has worked with a variety of award winning New Zealand businesses - some of the firm's early adopters going on to win national awards and feature on network news.  Prior to becoming a self-proclaimed government relations dynamo, Holly trained as a lawyer: she was admitted to the bar in 2013 and holds a current practising certificate.  A proud millennial, Holly continues to look for ways to innovate and disrupt government relations in New Zealand. Her vision is the expert industry will ultimately be something everyone can access.

Raewyn Kirkman is a baby boomer (but only just) and has over 30 years of working in HR, learning and development, management and governance roles across a range of sectors and organisations large and small. She is a fanatical volunteer, and for the most part this has played out in  Rotary , where she has had international leadership, mentoring and training roles.  Her personal brand –  ‘be generous – give to others, grow yourself and generate potential’  – aptly sums up her approach to life. She is constantly connecting people together, sharing her nuggets of knowledge with anyone who will listen and looking for the lessons of everyday living.
