love & labour – THE TRIBE

Love & Labour – THE TRIBE is a group of local King Country women who combine passion & hard graft to do amazing things both personally and professionally.

We recognised the importance of strengthening our local community long before the global COVID-19 pandemic, and we’ve been passionately supporting one another for many many months now.

We believe we’re better together.

We thrive when we’re well-supported, encouraged and inspired to be the very best version of ourselves every day, and the Tribe provides the forum for exactly that.

Since September 2018 the Tribe has been providing local women with the skills, confidence and opportunities to achieve great things for the benefit of themselves, their families and our wider community through ongoing personal and professional development.  Our sessions are interactive workshops, discussions and shared learnings, as well as an opportunity to hear from guest speakers who have an amazing story to tell.

We meet monthly on the second Thursday of each month from 12:30pm – 1:30pm at our offices, 10 Te Kanawa St, Otorohanga.  All sessions are recorded and accessible via the closed facebook group, where there is also a whole heap of other inspiring and informative content.  We also have an evening (5:30pm) catch up once a quarter, purely for networking to expand our connections and widen our circle.

Most of all, it’s a chance to focus on YOU.

It’s free to join!
