SkyCity Diversity & Inclusion Leadership Conferenc

After experiencing Ali Mau as an MC for the Rainbow Excellence Awards, we knew she’d be perfect for our first Diversity & Inclusion Leadership Conference! And she was.

Ali was such as pleasure to work with throughout. She was warm, approachable and agile in the lead up to the conference, showing a genuine interest in the topic as well as ensuring she understood our business and the people who bought it to life. On the day, she did a marvellous job of keeping the event moving seamlessly, whilst also giving it the gravitas, professionalism and energy required to ensure it was a stand-out conference.
