Business commentator coming to town
High-profile business journalist Rod Oram is coming to Ōtaki to talk about the place the town has in the worldwide energy revolution.
Council is a proud supporter of the event and Energise Ōtaki, the community initiative to make the Greater Ōtaki area a net exporter of clean energy.
Rod Oram is a respected business commentator who for many years has been advocating for the kind of changes Energise Ōtaki seeks to bring about. He has won numerous media and journalism awards, has been editor of the business section of the NZ Herald and is currently a columnist and commentator for the Sunday Star-Times and Radio New Zealand.
Rod will conduct a free public meeting on 27 October at Ōtaki College and then address a business breakfast the next day at Ōtaki RSA. He will address issues such as the benefits of moving to a low-energy economy; how doing so saves money, supports the town and helps the environment. He will also address what we can do as individuals, businesses and the wider community to bring about meaningful change.
