Kia ora koutou katoa
My thoughts are with all of you in difficulty as a result of the cyclone and storms.
Welcome to the first Impact email of the year – to kick start the year we have created a short survey as we thought it might yield some nice perspectives – was talking to MBIE on some of these questions and they are curious what you all will say! You can access it here and we would like responses by Friday 24th March: https://forms.office.com/r/icNn4kyGuw Also, could you tell others you know about it or put in any newsletters you know of?
Also, this year am on a mission to make the law more accessible so will be doing an “ask me anything” on legal questions soon – am open to questions on anything and so far have had some on the FMA and capital raising, Confidentiality Agreements and overseas charitable work – real variety! Send your difficult questions by hitting reply. More info and a video is at this LinkedIn post or you can register for the zoom session on 31 March here.
This year will hold the Impact Calls on a more ad hoc basis – when an issue comes up or someone to talk to – so be watching out for them too!
Our law firm now with 80 staff just moved back into central city Christchurch and was profiled in this stuff article, may interest you as talks a lot about the earthquakes as well and what it has been like returning.
By the way I had a great break over Christmas travelling in Europe, and feel ready for the new year! How was your break – does it feel like a long time ago?
