Women in Business Lunch 2022

Thank you for joining us at this year’s Women in Business Luncheon – with guest speaker Mary Haddock-Staniland and MC Elise Niu. What an inspirational and uplifting time to share together.
“Our WIB luncheon attendees were moved by Mary’s story and her passionate advocacy for building a more diverse and inclusive world. When it comes to diversity and inclusion…sharing stories of lived experience is a very powerful thing. It gives a rare, personal insight into what life is like for someone else. And from that, shared understanding is born…along with a zest to do better, be better.” – Monique Leith, Kāpiti Chamber co-chair.
Thank you to Joanna Piatek, Captured by Friday, for the wonderful moments she captured of the event.

The time spent together was a delight, made even better with the incredible mouth-watering luncheon catered by PartyPerfect Catering. It really is hard to beat great company and great food – and we managed to tick both boxes thanks to the over 100 people who attended the luncheon this year.
The success of an event of this size is down to a great team and fabulous sponsors. A huge thanks therefore to each of the Women in Business Committee members who helped put this event together, and our incredible sponsors;

Kāpiti Women in Business would like to invite you to their Coffee Connections

These are going to be held the last Friday of every month. They are very casual events, pop in for a quick chat or stay the whole time. Bring friends, work colleagues, your business cards/brochures, and take this opportunity to make new connections.

Due to the current Covid restrictions and the Cafe needing to control the number of attendees we are asking people to pre-register. You can do this via the events page on the website.
