For those of you who missed the Credit Professional Awards night, please put it on your agenda for next year. It is such an affirmation of the industry we work in and so enjoyable to get to know and mix with good people. It was a pleasure to celebrate our winners and indeed all our finalists who were of the highest standard. Visit www.nzcfi.org to view images from the evening.
Our guest speaker, the elusive Mr John Key, whose status as speaker was 'on again, off again' leading up to the event, did honour us with his presence and proved very popular, circulating and meeting with as many people as possible.
The thought did strike me that as we are in Election Year, it would be an opportune time to hear from the finance spokespeople of other political parties. So as we live in a democracy, I'm inviting you all to email me your suggestions (Beehive@nzcfi.org) of the one question you would most like to put to these political pundits that relates to our world of credit. I will then endeavour to forward the question of most popular demand, to the Beehive and await a swarm of responses to be published in a pre-election issue of our newsletter.
