Press Release from Print NZ – October 2008
Ink in Our Veins Conference
Top Speakers Return To Emphasise Business Messages
Two top speakers with a track record of winning over print industry audiences with their advice on business development
are set to return to the floor in New Zealand print industry’s conference – Ink In Our Veins – hosted by PrintNZ at
Wairakei near Taupo next week from October 13-15.
Financial guru Peter Sewell and presentation skills expert David Nottage have been brought back as a result of the high
ratings they got from delegates who attended their presentations at previous PrintNZ conferences.
Peter Sewell will address the conference on “Setting Business Strategies” next Tuesday from 1.00pm-1.50pm. He has a
passion for assisting small and medium enterprises in becoming more profitable. Operating under the title of “Business
Financial Architect”, Peter has developed a strategy that allows company owners and directors to identify and achieve
the success factors required to make their businesses more profitable.
Previously, he was Chief Manager, Business Banking of a major New Zealand bank and Chairman of the New Zealand Institute
of Chartered Accountants, Auckland Branch.
David Nottage will speak on “Presentation Skills” on Wednesday from 1.35pm-3.40pm. The Director of TORQUE Ltd, a New
Zealand-based company that provides training in effective and powerful business presentations, David operates under the
motto “Presentations that work for life”.
He offers a wide variety of formats to match the criteria of his clients, which have included the University of
Auckland, the Royal New Zealand Navy, Air New Zealand and many others. He has won a number of awards for public
speaking, including the prestigious World Championship for Toastmasters International.
Ink In Our Veins will feature four streams of focused sessions in the areas of Business, Environment, Sales and
Technology, plus four keynote speakers.
Last-minute bookings are still being taken for the conference sessions and for the golf and fishing trips planned for
Monday, but people are urged to make their bookings as quickly as possible to avoid disappointment.
Delegates from all around New Zealand are expected to attend the Ink In Our Veins conference, representing all sectors
of the New Zealand print industry.
