Achieving impossible dreams for Wellington; first speakers named for Forum

News from Rotary Forum
Wellington will keep cruising along as is unless we put more cells on the solar panel, have more connection in our communities and more action in our voices. Want to see what fired up and passionate people talking about their impossible dream for Wellington looks like? What it feels like?

The Rotary Forum will be an afternoon event with twelve top speakers. It will be a space for great minds to collide, share knowledge and discuss impossible dreams for the future of Wellington.

At this event you will be challenged, inspired and connected with people vital to the future success of our city and region. This is your chance to join other leaders of positive social change.

Tell us what you think. Network. But most importantly, make a difference.

The more connected we are, the more knowledgeable we become; the better chance we stand of achieving the impossible for Wellington.

The future of Wellington is in our hands. What does it look like?
