We are very proud of our very own Kerri Dewe, Lowndes Principal, who has returned from Hawaii where she competed in the Kona Ironman World Championship.
Against the backdrop of an uncertain election outcome, it was inevitable that Workshop 4 would be dominated by concerns and speculation about the makeup of the next government. That said, each speaker was also clear about what business needs, regardless of who ends up in power, and they were more or less unanimous about the major issues.
It was again with pleasure that Lowndes hosted two students for the AUT Business and Law School’s Shadow a Leader Day, Lauren Gamble from AUT and Justin Havea from St Peters College. Lauren and Justin had a unique experience that they highly recommend to other students. As Lauren says, “It is a really good way to build connections and help you discover what you are interested in for your future”.
