This month’s speaker is economic and business commentator Rod Oram.
Rod’s in-depth examinations of the global economic crisis have been both eye-opening and incisive. His weekly column in the Sunday Star-Times, plus radio, TV and public appearances deliver in-depth analysis on New Zealand’s position in the world and future economic prospects. Rod has won praise for challenging business leaders to come to terms with their environmental impact, highlighting opportunities for dealing with climate change, the importance of up skilling, R&D and corporate responsibility, amongst many other topics.
More information on Rod’s background can be found here
Join us for a drink and a discussion on the causes of the current global economic crisis and its consequences for the New Zealand economy. Rod will be talking about how changes in the global economic order will be felt in our country and examine options for our future. There will be time for questions from the floor and the bar.

lprent: On the general subject of notices, there are some interesting documentaries at the DocNZ documentary film festival. I’m going put a trailer of one documentary that I think will be fun to watch.
