This conference is an excellent use of Professional Coaching and Support for the
Principal Leadership role funding ($6k) i.e. building professional networks and wellbeing.

The younger sister, Naumi Hotel Wellington, has her own distinct personality of Gatsby proportions. Statement stripes and bold elements greet you as you travel to your room. Situated on elevated levels, every room has a view either of Cuba Street, the city or across to the Wellington hills. The hotel boasts 62 generously proportioned rooms, more like a studio apartment than a hotel room, ensuring the most comfortable stay.

A special room rate is available for delegates by clicking on the link. The Hotel has a block of rooms allocated for a period of time.  Book early through the link below to ensure you do not miss out.
