Exclusive to Chamber members, BNZ Biz Bites is held the first Wednesday of every month (excluding December/January).
Hosted by BNZ and the Chamber, this event offers an informal environment where you are invited to bring your lunch and listen to a topical speaker.
These sessions are an ideal way to network and stay up to date on a multitude of valuable topics such as tax and employee changes, marketing, team building, business technology and central government legislative changes.
Biz Bites is free to attend, but with the popularity of these sessions you do need to register.

This was the topic presented to our members yesterday at our monthly Biz Bites session.
Phil Townsend, Interest Rate Risk Manager from BNZ is part of a National team that provide interpretations on upcoming economic releases, both domestically and international. Phil presented information on how the OCR is calculated. Phil believes our economy is doing reasonably well and that it is very unlikely we would see 0% interest. However, he believes we may see this go down to as low as .5%.
Phil had a great sense of humour, whilst presenting a topic that is very topical in our financial sector.
