Taupo Chamber of Commerce & Industry is stoked to announce the second ‘Elevate’ event. This event series brings NZs best and brightest business people to Taupo to talk about business experiences, the challenges and successes of running a business, and the key factors that help in business success.

We are privileged and proud to bring two amazing, high calibre speakers to Taupō. You'll leave with some incredible insights into the current and future business landscape. Be inspired to take action and implement key take-home messages to help our members and other businesses in the district grow and improve.

Jo Cribb - Consultant
Some of us think that technology is the stuff of silicon valley and start-ups but the potential impact on our businesses and careers from advances in automation and artificial intelligence could be marked and coming quicker than we think. Just how prepared are we for the future of work as we enter the fourth industrial revolution? In a practical session about technology and its impact on work, Jo will outline how we can get ahead and thrive in the coming decades.

Jo was the previous Chief Executive of the Ministry for Women and the Deputy Children's Commissioner. One of the youngest Chief Executives ever appointed in the New Zealand Public Service, she has invested her time and energy in advancing the cause of the vulnerable in society, spearheading some of the most difficult issues of our time, including child abuse, child poverty, family violence and vulnerable women.

Andy Hamilton - CEO, The Icehouse
What Makes Entrepreneurs Wise? Andy will focus on business owners and how to help them grow a desire for wisdom around them, as they grow their businesses.

Founded in 2001 in recognition of the importance of the SME sector to the New Zealand economy, the Icehouse is committed to creating a high performing economy where ideas and businesses thrive and companies develop to be successful internationally.
