Ata Mārie Wellington: Building social license on a shoestring budget

The Marketing Association is launching a new informal morning get-together at The Arborist on Willis Street. You can stop by on your way to work for a coffee, a muffin, and a 30-minute presentation. We’re keeping it short with a sharp focus on practical work done by your Wellington peers.

For our initial Ata Mārie event on 28 February, we have invited David Lewis from the Predator Free NZ Trust to discuss how they are building advocacy and facilitating the message to inspire communities into action – all on a small budget.

Find out how they are empowering their team and providing the tools they need, how they are utilising social media and creating their own content as a charitable organisation in a constrained environment.

  • Time: 7.45am - 8.30am
