Four Times Tables

Sport New Zealand in association with Women on Boards presents Four Times Tables “a speed learning opportunity”:

Four topics, four experts, four conversations
A great chance to canvas key governance issues with four experienced practitioners. In a variation of the “speed dating” concept, groups move every 20 minutes to engage in all four conversations. The evening finishes with some food and drink and a great chance to mingle.
