2020 Women and Business Events 

Women and Business provides a welcoming, positive environment for Business Women and Professionals to connect on a monthly basis. Events are held monthly on a Tuesday evening. 
The format for each event includes informal networking over drinks and nibbles, a 30 minute seated presentation followed by an additional 30 minutes of informal networking.
The topics of our presentations and discussion change monthly, some include guest speakers while other events include presentations, inspiration and motivation.
Members are encouraged to bring along an opportunity for the Women and Business Opportunity Table. This is where you can place a special offer, discount or goodies on the provided Opportunity Table for other members to take away and benefit from.

Inspirational Leadership – Balancing the Books

When the going gets tough – the tough get going!

Whilst most of us were in lockdown due to the Covid-19 crisis, working from home and juggling our lives Bobbie O’Fee was starting up another business!

Bobbie is a partner at ONLA (O’Fee Next Level Accounting, a multi-disciplinary all female practice in the Centre of Palmerston North.  She is a member of the Institute of Directors, on the Board of the Central Economic Development Agency (the regions EDA), sits on various board of both profit and non-profit organisations and has recently taken over the Drovers Motor Inn.

A high performer Bobbie is a proven case that women make great leaders because they are able to balance professional and personal leadership skills and challenge assumptions. 

Women in business need role models and we are delighted to welcome Bobbie to share with us some insights into what drives her and how she balances her roles especially during these challenging times.  We are reliably informed that Bobbie relaxes by ‘making cheese’ and enjoys gin and wine!
