‘Never forget the lessons you learn from the people you admire’ was a key piece of advice from our HR panellists earlier in the year.

Maeve Neilson, HR Services Manager at the Civil Aviation Authority, Richard Westney, Independent HR contractor (and Summer of Biz co-founder!), Danni Williams, Senior Consultant at PWC and Kate Fogarty HR Advisor at Land Information New Zealand came together in the new PWC collaboration space overlooking the Wellington waterfront to share their lessons and knowledge from careers in Human Resources with our Summer of Biz students. Here are some of the ups, downs and topsy turns of their careers and lessons they’ve learnt along the way the panel members shared on the night:


Thank you very much to Danni, Richard, Kate and Maeve for taking the time to share their thoughts and wisdom with us all. Also a special thank you to PWC for hosting us and Alyson Garrido for chairing the panel.
