Alumni are warmly invited to this Breakfast with the Experts alumni event on the economic impact of COVID-19 and our recovery.

Come along to hear from fellow graduate, senior economist, and media commentator Brad Olsen and data maestro Ngapera Riley, in conversation with Stephen Cummings, Professor of Strategy and Innovation, and Jesse Pirini, Co-Director of The Atom/Te Kahu o Te Ao Innovation Space.

A senior economist at Infometrics, Brad has his finger on the pulse of business in New Zealand and is currently fully-focused on the economic effects of COVID-19 and the reimagination of our economy. Ngapera Riley is CEO of Figure NZ, a charitable trust making data accessible for better decision making by and for all New Zealanders. She works closely with Māori businesses across the country.

Freshly baked treats and hot beverages will be available, and there’ll be time for questions, wider discussion, and networking with your fellow alumni too.

There is no charge for this event, but places are limited. Please RSVP by Friday 14 August.

This event will also be recorded and shared.
