Brad Olsen – BA5 speaker

Brad Olsen is the speaker for the Electra BA5

Join us for drinks, nibbles and the very latest economic date for the Horowhenua at the last November Electra Business After Five.

This month’s event will look a little different with it being hosted at Thermosash Commercial Limited on Enterprise drive (at the end of Roe Street). Thermosash is a recent business to the district that relocated to Levin from Wellington in 2020 in order to have more connectivity to the central the North Island. This move has brought an array of job opportunities for local talent driven by their ethos of prioritising hiring local people. We appreciate them opening their shiny new doors for us all for the Business After Five event. 

This month’s event will be one not to be missed. You will be one of the first to hear the economic updates for New Zealand as well as how Horowhenua is faring compared to the national picture. Brad will give us relevant forecasts about the trending topics of housing, borders, employment and what may be in-store for our local businesses in the new year. This is a great opportunity to ask questions and soak up important data that will help you and your business prepare for 2022.
