  • General Admission: $30.68

Join us for an intimate evening of great networking, inspiration and support with guest speaker Ken Forrest, Managing Director, Marlborough Lines.

Just like any other business, managing one of NZ’s most successful power companies has its challenges. Ken will share what has made Marlborough Lines successful and outline how we can apply some of those same strategies and learnings to the journey of our own businesses.

An extensive Q&A session means you can dive deeper into Ken's experience, and gain more takeaways for your own business journey. It's not often that we are able to meet the leader of a company of the caliber of Marlborough Lines in an intimate and inspirational space.

A "network with purpose" session means you will form lasting connections with other like-mined individuals, sharing opportunities and needs. Who knows what amazing things that could lead to.

About Marlborough Lines:
Marlborough Lines does more than just deliver electricity to electricity consumers of Marlborough.

It does so in a sustainable way and has long held the internationally recognised environmental certification ISO 14001, says Ken.

To this end, seven years ago the company planted a Eucalypt forest for sustainable cross-arm timber supply and to support a Eucalypt breeding programme with the aim of switching from Malaysian timber imports to sustainably produced hardwood timbers raised locally.

Marlborough Lines measures its carbon footprint and undertakes voluntary greenhouse gas assessments.

Marlborough Lines doesn’t just own and operate the Marlborough electricity network, it owns 50% of the network which supplies Nelson and three years ago acquired a major shareholding in Yealands Wine Group which has been judged the world’s ‘most sustainable winery’, and certified ‘carbon zero’.

Entrepreneur Social is a monthly networking event for business owners, managers and entrepreneurs to engage and connect with purpose driven individuals who value collaboration and problem solving.
