Inspirational Kiwi businessman to speak at Get Into It Christchurch

The Get Into It Cocktail Event for Business is the final part of the Get Into It Christchurch campaign, which has been running for the last five weeks. The event is being held tomorrow (Wednesday 4 April) from 5.00pm to 7.00pm at the Westpac Business and Community Hub, and is free for any Christchurch business to attend.

Steve Lange purchased Tony’s Tyre Services when he was 23 years old, using a loan from his accountant at 28% interest.  He grew the business from a single Palmerston North tyre shop to a recognised national brand, overcoming enormous challenges along the way – including nearly going broke twice. A high school dropout who went on to become one of New Zealand’s leading entrepreneurial businessmen, Steve is coming to Christchurch to share his story of triumphing over adversity, at a free business event.

“Christchurch business people have been through the wringer over the last 18 months and I’m hoping that through sharing the highs and lows of my business career I can provide a bit of encouragement and inspiration – and maybe a few laughs,” says Steve. 

More than 100 Canterbury businesses have taken part in the Get Into It Christchurch campaign, and they are all in the running for thousands of dollars’ worth of prizes which will be up for grabs at the Get Into It Cocktail Event for Business.

Any Canterbury business can attend the free event, which is proudly sponsored by Vodafone.  To register email registrations@cecc.org.nz or for more information go to www.facebook.com/GetIntoItChristchurch or call Recover Canterbury on 0800 50 50 96.
