Men of Otautahi. Hard-ly Speaking is back!

As always, we're bringing you six diverse speakers, sharing their hard-won life lessons for four minutes each. It's fast, furious, and guaranteed to get you thinking differently. Chase it all down with bevvies and bites from legendary local businesses, and you’ve got yourself Hard-ly Speaking; a grassroots movement that knows how to have a good time. 

This time around, we’re proud to announce a new partnership – one that will strengthen our impact and allow us to make tangible change in our city. Introducing: PlaceMakers Canterbury. These legends have been building communities for over 35 years, and in a male-dominated industry, they get the importance of fronting up to the tough stuff. Of emotionally showing up.

Support The PlaceMakers Foundation 

Launched in April 2019, The PlaceMakers Foundation has a vision to support local communities. From extending a helping hand to local groups to bringing major projects to fruition through their Working Bee Grant – The PlaceMakers Foundation stands for collectively building a better New Zealand. By donating now, you’ll be supporting a specific community project that we’ll choose together at Hard-ly Speaking. Real change starts in our own backyard, so let’s rally together for Ōtautahi Christchurch.


Once again, we'll be gathering at the epic Christchurch BMW Showrooms for an evening of food, drink and frank conversation. Coming at you for another fast, furious and thought provoking evening – it’s Hard-ly Speaking round three. Get on board! 


Special thanks to our Hard-ly Speaking supporters…
