MUV Talks: Reinvention

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

This time at MUV Talks we’ll be sharing stories about ‘Reinvention’.

COVID-19 has affected all of us in different ways. Join us to hear and to be inspired by four brave and persevering entrepreneurs who have adapted and re-invented their approach from one day to another.

This will be our first online event! You can grab a free ticket or choose to make a donation to I Got Your Back Pack, a NZ registered charity (#CC53632) who support survivors of domestic violence by donating backpacks filled with practical and essential items, to women’s refuges around the country, to help the women and children who often have to leave their homes with nothing but the clothes on their back.


What is MUV Talks?

Is a non-profit series focused on building capability and relationships within communities. What makes it special is that it is driven by the purpose of celebrating and empowering everyday people who are doing incredible things. We focus on sharing stories that may otherwise not be heard. 

Each event consists of seven talks for seven minutes, from a diverse set of people with different experiences and points of view, talking about one common theme. Our unique approach to networking helps to create an energetic and friendly environment that guarantees an exceptional experience for our attendees.

Since November 2016 we have had been inspired by more than 100 speakers. You can check out the talks on our Youtube channel:
