Hey neighbours,

Restaurant Month is back for another year, set to bolster the Auckland culinary scene by offering discounted dishes and unique events for the entire month of August.

Gastronomes can expect 31 days of specially curated menus at the value-for-money price points of $25, $40 or $55+.

Restaurants included span those from the waterfront to the CBD, and from stalwarts such as Euro, Botswana Butchery and Odettes​ Eatery, to the newcomers and the underdogs.

Viv Beck, Heart of the City chief executive, said this year’s lineup is “more world-class than ever” thanks to the “inspiring lineup of chefs”, some of whom have recently returned to Auckland from stints overseas.

Come November 27, teams of brave inventors will hurl themselves off an Auckland pier and into the waters below, all in the name of Flugtag.

It’s a welcome return to New Zealand for the Red Bull Flugtag competition, which last graced our shores in 2004 when it was hosted in Wellington.

The competition will see amateur aviators design, build and then fly contraptions in a bid to be crowned winner.

The thousands of people set to descend upon Wynyard Quarter to see the event are likely to keep business booming for local hospitality hotspots.

Presenter: Carol Scholes
Day & Date: Tuesday, 3 August
Time: 9:00am
Venue: Studio 4, Te Tuhi, 13 Reeves Road, Pakuranga, Auckland.

Session 1 will explore the new expectations of boards of not for profits including the important strategic leadership role. Part A will cover an easy way to understand the role of the board compared to management including the legal responsibilities of board members. In Part B of the session, we will discuss the role of the board in strategy and how to ensure the organisation has a plan that gives clarity and can respond to the changing environment.

Session 2 (OPTIONAL) follows lunch, and is a time where Carol can give more personalised/group assistance and input as you and your group work on or consider your own Plans and Strategy and consider your group's Governance needs and requirements. A great time to follow up the first session with some practical application and an opportunity to ask Carol some questions.
