The Leaders Lounge:
ECE Managers and Owners Network Event

🗓️ Mark Your Calendar for Friday 22nd March 2023 1.00-5.00pm

📍 Location: Sorrento in the Park, One Tree Hill Domain, Royal Oak, Auckland

You are invited to our inaugural networking event created specifically for ECE Center owners and managers. 

Leading and managing in ECE can sometimes be a lonesome place, and staying on top of regulatory requirements, MOE changes, staffing etc etc can make your head spin. We are so often taking care of everyone else, that we forget about ourselves. 

Join us for an opportunity to network with others in the same position as you. Hear from our engaging guest speakers and connect with fellow ECE leaders in a relaxed atmosphere. Engage in open, honest discussions about the joys and struggles of running an ECE center. No pressure, just a space to learn from each other and relax a little on a Friday afternoon.
