While we continued to offer our services throughout COVID, we have felt the onward effects as organisations and learning institutes grapple with events and how to run them safely and within the restriction guidelines. However, since the move to the orange traffic light level, we are slowly seeing a return to business as usual and an increase in face-to-face speaker bookings once more – we look forward to seeing more PSB engagements in the second half of 2022.

In the last couple of months, we have seen many commemorations. We hope that you have all enjoyed a well-deserved Easter and Anzac break and wishing a Ramadan Kareem to all our Muslim members. Coming closer to home we have our sights on the up-and-coming Matariki celebrations

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and Anzac break.  For our household this meant the arrival of two new members to the family, Hazel on the left and Bristle on the right. I am talking about the cats, not my grandsons. They are very cute and have kept us entertained with their playful antics.
