The Opposition Challenges the State of the Economy

Electra Business Breakfast – B2B networking – Sponsored by Electra

Nau mai haere mai Electra Business Breakfast is pleased to be welcoming Nicola Willis, Deputy Leader of the Opposition and Finance Spokesperson for the National Party.  Since delivery of Budget 2023, Nicola has been outspoken about its workability saying, middle New Zealanders have missed out with the Government continuing to spend with wide abandonment.

She believes restraint is needed at a time when people are worried about being able to pay their mortgages without any tax relief in-sight.  Is she right?  Come along to hear Nicola’s ‘State of the Economy’ address where she will cover the cost-of-living crisis and the plan to tackle it.

Nicola is an engaging speaker and will be well prepared so start thinking about your questions now as she will take questions at the end of her address.  This Breakfast will be held in the Southward Theatre as it is likely to draw a large crowd.

    See you there! Book early to avoid disappointment.


    If circumstances were to change and Covid prevented us from operating, we will reschedule first and then transfer or refund tickets as needed.  We encourage being fully boosted for you, your whānau, your community, and please don’t attend if you are feeling unwell.  We look forward to seeing you all soon.
