All about The Auckland Executive Club Inc.
- To provide a forum for women, which will allow for personal and professional growth.
- To encourage networking and business promotion.
- To enjoy motivational and topical speakers.
- To provide support to our chosen charities.
The Auckland Executive Club was formed by a group of business women who felt that there was a lack of facilities for women in business, apart from service organisations.
In a lot of cases, many women go into the market place and get involved in all manner of careers, not knowing 'who else is out there' and what support or information may be available.
The Auckland Executive Club membership is aimed at women in senior management, the professions, business owners and people with specialist skills. We place emphasis on encouragement, sharing good news, hearing positive and dynamic speakers, and enthusiastically supporting all members who are making a dynamic difference in the business community. Extending friendship and support is what we are all about.
The Club was formalised in 1987 and has a constant membership of about 80. We welcome new faces at every meeting, and look forward to welcoming many more.
We restrict membership within business sectors to ensure a balance; however, if you would like to join, we would be delighted to talk to you.
These are usually held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month, are informal and take place over dinner. Speakers are a feature of most evenings, and the starting time is 6pm (details are always given in the monthly e-zine / newsletter). If you are thinking of joining AEC, we always suggest you attend as a guest for at least one meeting before applying for Membership to ensure the Club has a fit for you and your business.
The structured part of the evening is usually over by 9pm - 9.30pm, although anyone wishing to stay on and get to know more people will always have company.
Make sure you come with an ample supply of business cards - you will have plenty of opportunities to use them.
Joining Fee: $75.00
Annual Subscription: $140.00
Subscriptions due October.
Wanita Zoghby-Fourie was the guest speaker at the July dinner. Speaking on using social media to promote your business, she gave relevant insights into the shift to social media for customers wishing to purchase goods and services. This move has been rapid and Wanita was ahead of most of us with how we could and should be using Facebook, hashtags, personnas, Instagram and Twitter to grow our businesses.
It was a night full of rich insights into how to keep up with and possibly even ahead of the competition.
