This may not be a fair depiction of the sterling ADI Team in Wanaka with the most usual suspects being Charlie James and Wayne Hudson. Their sessions run every first Monday of the month. This month they were fully booked. Awesome guys!
Usually, the Far North team is busier with younger founders and more female mentors. But not so this month! Just before the Tuesday session, their only booking was pushed out to August. So the mentors are off to the beach where most likely all the founders can be found.
Thank you, Auriole Ruka, Linda Reid and Martin Knoche.

Tim has indicated that he wants to step down from the FKA Board after three years of super service. That leaves Charlie, Josh and Rudi looking for some new blood. Angel or not, please talk to either of the four to find out what is involved and how you can help to keep the tempo at FKA. Rewards are high, remuneration is nil.
Little known fact: Tim was a drummer in his not too distant youth. Add in NZVIFler and crooner Chris, also Datagate's rockstar Mark and we'd have a trio of ajamminband.
In April Heath attended the ACA Summit in Boston. He brought back an interesting table, that contrasts the return multiples metric that is so popular in angelic circles with the more general IRR metric.
There is never a free lunch but BNZ provides a free breakfast plus an opportunity to meet Kate Daly, an ace comms professional and also well respected in rugby circles.
