Well they apparently do work as marketing tools.

The Little sis of BB - the pod princess known as Lambcut organised a wee soiree for the Rural Women of NZ -with guest speaker Fran O'Sullivan and her take on blogs.

It was expected to be a small function - its grown a bit - so much so the venue has now changed - to one of our favourite bars - D4...

The power of new media - its seems.

You are invited to the next breakfast meeting of the RWNZ Wellington Network Group, to be held on Tuesday 29 September. Please feel free to pass this message onto your staff and colleagues.

RWNZ is delighted to have special guest Fran O’Sullivan - a columnist for the New Zealand Herald - speaking at this month’s breakfast meeting on the rise of political blogging.

Just to clarify things (because there seems to be some confusion amongst the town guys), RWNZ Wellington Breakfast Meetings are not held primarily for rural women. RWNZ is an inclusive organisation. It has male members. None of its meetings are ever exclusive on a gender basis. The Breakfast Meetings are usually fairly small networking opportunities hosted by RWNZ for various industry group representatives and government officials to get together and discuss common concerns. The September 29 Breakfast Meeting is a special event designed to attract a wider audience. Everyone is welcome!
