On the very last Friday that August blessed us with, we were lucky enough to have Sarah Longbottom take over our CreativeMornings/Auckland to discuss the sometimes very-frightening concept of “failure.” Rejecting the word “failure,” Sarah encouraged everyone to view their past and present mishaps as grounds for transformation and growth. She walked and talked the audience through her inspirational mentoring initiative Nga Rangatahi Toa, which seeks to embrace and empower the marginalised youth who have not had their needs and potential realised in the mainstream education system in New Zealand.
Since Sarah was a recipient of The Vodafone World of Difference programme, we got to be hosted by the cool characters at Vodafone! The event was proudly delivered to you by Curative, Coffee Supreme, Antipodes Water Company, Little Lot, AUT and our awesome troupe of volunteers.
If you were there or not, take a virtual wander through our morning and get enthused for this month’s speaker (more on her soon…) Big thanks to Kaan Hiini and Jemma Field for manning the cameras!
