Our second BA5 for 2022 was hosted by the fantastic team at Hartley & Associates. While the weather turned wild outside, guests enjoyed a glass of wine provided by Hawkes Ridge Wine Estate in the warmth and comfort of the prestigious Hawke’s Bay Club. This beautiful venue set the scene for a fabulous night. Delicious canapés were served by owner and chef Andrew Poppelwell from Design Cuisine while guests mixed and mingled.

The evening kicked off with a short welcome from Phoebe Clark on behalf of Hawke’s Bay Chamber of Commerce, then handed over to the host, Tom and the team from Hartley & Associates.

Dr Tom Hartley had the crowd engaged and entertained while presenting Hartley & Associates and Secure Right's services and the importance of Cyber Security. Tom’s presentation was interactive and even had Damon Harvey from ‘The Profit’ taking home a Nimalist wallet and Apple tag as a reward for sharing a great story.

The rest of the evening was full of incredible giveaways provided by Hartley & Associates, The Hawke’s Bay Club, Design Cuisine, Hawkes Ridge Wine Estate and Noel Leeming Hastings.

Our lucky prize winners were:

  • Maxine Hilliker- Mitchell from Air Napier - $100 voucher for the Hawke’s Bay Club

The atmosphere and vibe in the Hawkes Bay Club was buzzing. It was great to see so many members in the room as well as so many fresh new faces. It was a wonderful chance to network with our business community.
