Join us for our 2024 post-budget lunch, with Finance Minister Hon Nicola Willis.

Join us on 3 July 2024 for a post-budget briefing from Minister of Finance, Hon Nicola Willis. As one of the first public appearances for the Minister following the delivery of the 2024 Budget, you will hear first-hand how the Government's fiscal decisions will impact family businesses leaders and the New Zealand economy.

This event is a great opportunity to gain an insider perspective on the headline outcomes of Budget 2024 for business, and with plenty of time allowed for Q&A and networking over lunch, this event is also a great opportunity to host your team or clients.

Light standing lunch will be provided.
