GNZCC Members Lunch with His Worship the Mayor of Wellington Justin Lester
The German-New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in association with AJ Park invites you to an exclusive lunch on Wednesday 17th October, with guest speaker the Mayor of Wellington Justin Lester. His Worship will share his own personal journey, from his overseas experience (with time spent in Germany) and the perspective this has given him on returning to New Zealand.
Mayor of Wellington - Justin Lester
Justin Lester was elected Mayor in 2016. He joined Wellington City Council as a Northern Ward Councillor in 2010 and then served as Deputy Mayor from 2013 until 2016. Justin’s priorities as Mayor include kick-starting the economy, making housing affordable, improving Wellington’s transport, replacing outdated bylaws and prioritising arts funding. Justin grew up in Invercargill with his mother and two brothers. He has an LLB and a BA (German) from the University of Otago and a Masters of Laws (LLM) from the University of Heidelberg in Germany. In his mid-twenties he co-founded Kapai a Wellington food enterprise.
Please note the Celebration of German Reunification, hosted by the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany at the Boatshed, will also take place on this day from 6-8pm, so a double reason to be in Wellington for the afternoon/evening!
