Men of Ōtautahi. Hard-ly Speaking is back!
As always, we're bringing you a curated selection of 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.
Once again, we’re proud to join forces with PlaceMakers Canterbury. These legends have been building communities for over 35 years, and in a male-dominated industry, they know the value of creating a space for men to share their stories.
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 announce at Hard-ly Speaking. Real change starts in our own backyard, so let’s rally together for Ōtautahi Christchurch.
This round, we’ll be gathering at the Bayley's Knight Frank foyer in the Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū for an evening of food, drink and frank conversation. Coming at you for another thought provoking evening – it’s Hard-ly Speaking round four.
Special thanks to our Hard-ly Speaking supporters…
