M2 readers connect with M2, but they also want to connect with each other.

So Friday 22 February 2019 will be our first M2 SUCCESS LIVE Event, to connect with like minded people, looking to grow themselves and their businesses in 2019.

By attending M2 SUCCESS LIVE you will become part of a community of professionals inspired by fellow New Zealand leaders and visionaries, celebrating success, sharing business insights and building key relationships.

For the first time, M2 readers can be in the room when our Editor Andre Rowell, talks to our most inspiring New Zealanders doing exciting things on a local and global scale. Not only will you be in the room, you get to ask questions yourself, which could form part of an M2 Magazine feature, the videos we will be creating and sharing socially and via M2magazine.co.nz, and on special Podcast episodes we will be creating and distributing.

You will come away with actionable advice and ideas on how to grow your business and inspire your clients, while meeting new valuable business contacts and growing your network. Plus, all attendees will also receive a complimentary 12 month M2 Magazine Subscription worth over $130 which will feature the summaries of discussions from the speakers and picture pages of the event as a souvenir.

This is the Ultimate Business Retention & Development Opportunity for 2019.

Our Guests
Sir George Fistonich
Founder Villa Maria Wines

Sir George Fistonich founded Villa Maria Estate in Auckland in 1961 at a time when New Zealand really didn’t have a wine industry. With vision and determination he has not only built a company that has become New Zealand’s leading wine award winner but he has helped build an industry from the ground up that has become one of New Zealand’s largest export earners. A focus on innovation and big vision has been a factor in his success but equally important is his focus on sales, distribution networks and the customer which has allowed Villa Maria to remain privately owned throughout multiple economic downturns. His lessons apply to any industry at any stage of growth.

Michael Anderson
CEO, Mediaworks

Anderson joined MediaWorks in August 2016 from Australia, where he was Chairman of Oztam and oOH! Media and a non-Executive Director of Fairfax Australia. Prior to his tenure on Boards, Michael spent seven years as CEO of one of Australia’s largest commercial radio groups Austereo (now Southern Cross Austereo) and before that as their Group Director, Sales.  Under Michael’s leadership, Austereo’s EBITDA performance grew by improvements in increasing revenue and audience share, and at the same time making a successful transition into market leadership in digital.

Max Arshavsky
Co- Founder & CEO Zenno

ZENNO Astronautics is a spaceflight systems company solving key challenges in the burgeoning commercial space market, while working towards the optimisation of the nanosatellite bus.

Andre Rowell
M2 Editor

Having been the editor of M2 Magazine since 2006, Andre has been in the room with some of the biggest names in business from New Zealand and around the world, so he’s no stranger to tackling heavyweights head on with the hard hitting questions.
