2021 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.

 Our next event  is Tuesday 22nd June 2021 at 5.30pm. More information to follow.

June’s Guest Speaker is:

Shiloh Dobie from Shiloh Dobie Design

“Maker of all things weird and wacky!”

As a Designer, Props Maker and Garment Technician, Shiloh has produced a wide range of objects for Film, Television, Theatre and Events throughout New Zealand.

 From contracts on World of WearableArts, to the Avatar Sequels and everything in between, join us to listen in on Shiloh’s design process, the creative projects that keep her going and some of her released work.

 Not only this, but as an enlisted Reservist and an overt advocate for Reserve service, Shiloh also directs her attention to all things creative for the New Zealand Defence Force, including video production, special effects, graphic design and content creation to top it all off!

Drinks and nibbles provided and we, at Women and Business extend a  big thank you to our catering partner The Coffee Club.


The Coffee Club – New Zealand’s Most Loved and Relevant Café Chain

From the very beginning, The Coffee Club was founded on family, friends and customer need. The founding idea was to create a place that was more than just somewhere for people to meet for coffee; it would be more casual, comfortable yet sophisticated, stylish yet affordable.

As part of our commitment to continually evolve The Coffee Club brand, in March 2020, The Coffee Club unveiled a new look and feel for the brand that would also be reflected through a refresh of our store design with a contemporary new style. To commemorate this change, The Coffee Club launched a new logo which has now been in the New Zealand marketplace for a year, on TV, in magazines, and in all in-store promotional material.
