Dick Smith and Sam Johnson at important Queenstown event
Dick Smith has been quite outspoken about his views on energy and population, so this event could be an opportunity to have some open honest discussion, on important topics. If you know people in the Queenstown area, please let them know about this.
An Afternoon with Dick Smith & Sam Johnson
hosted by Rod Oram
September 14th, 2012
Don’t miss out on an amazing afternoon hearing Dick Smith talk in Queenstown. Dick Smith is one of Australasia’s most progressive business leaders having founded Dick Smith Electronics, Australian Geographic Magazine, and Dick Smith Foods. Come along to hear him talk about what drives him as a leading entrepreneur and what he sees as the challenges and opportunities for the future.
He will be joined by Sam Johnson, an inspiring and action-orientated young New Zealander who is best known for initiating the Student Volunteer Army in the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquakes. One of their current projects is The Concert: A Concerted Effort where youth are asked to volunteer 4 hours of their time in return for a free ticket to the best concert the South Island has seen!
This event will be hosted by award winning financial journalist, business commentator and author, Rod Oram. Rod has more than 30 years’ experience as an international business journalist and in 2010, was winner of the individual category in the Vero Excellence in Business Support Awards.
Proceeds from this event will go towards Shaping Our Future – a community engagement initiative in the Queenstown Lakes District.
