Come and hear John Cowan, well known speaker from The Parenting Place, at the first ever Parenting Week Dinner. He will be speaking on The tricky bits of parenting: Parenting styles that help build resilience in difficult times.

You may have heard John present Newstalk ZB's 'Real Life' programme on Sunday evenings, or you may have seen him on 'Good Morning' or caught other news interviews with him recently as he has become the 'go to' person on parenting issues.

John joined The Parenting Place in late 1995 as a seminar presenter and author. He writes much of The Parenting Place's material, including Hot Tips Events and Toolbox manuals, Attitude material and resources, and articles for Parenting magazine. As well as presenting parenting and relationship seminars, John has developed a life skills programme base for secondary school students, a puberty programme for intermediate schools and has been integral in developing and presenting the No Sweat Parenting programme.

A father of three young adults, John has a varied background - scientist, youth worker, minister, media producer and social worker in mental health. His relaxed style of communication, combined with a highly developed sense of humour and empathy for people, means he is in high demand as a speaker. John is a gifted and entertaining speaker, who will inspire any audience to take action to make those small changes that have a big impact, both in families and business environments.
