Mon 5th August – 9.00-9.45am
We are excited and thrilled to have Annah Stretton as the keynote speaker for the opening event of the inaugural Rotorua Innovation Festival Taiopenga Auaha 2019.
Annah is a perfect fit for #Innovate2019; a four-day festival of free events to share ideas, knowledge and connections to inspire social good and business success.
Founder and CEO of Stretton Fashion, Annah is recognised as one of New Zealand’s leading entrepreneurs with her successful fashion label. She is also a successful author, blogger, publisher and public speaker.
But perhaps her more most significant and enduring legacy is the work undertaken as part of the Stretton Foundation and RAW (Reclaim Another Woman). This partnership is enabling truly ground-breaking work for socially disadvantaged women in New Zealand.
Her achievements in business and social enterprise have been widely recognised with many accolades and awards including New Zealand Order of Merit for Services to Fashion/Business/Community, the Verve Clicquot Business Woman of the Year, the EY 2015 Social Entrepreneur of the Year, the 2017 Westpac Waikato Not for Profit Business of the Year and most recently the 2018 and 2019 semi finalist in Kiwibank New Zealander of the year.
Come listen to Annah share her amazing story and the insights to her success.
