Join Paul Rangiwahia and Josh Hickford at Do Box for an interactive chat about their respective health journeys, experiences and how they are harnessing technology and digital tools to connect with the community and promote better health and emotional wellbeing.
They will be discussing the role that technology can play in helping address social issues, and how do we ensure it is used for good without leaving people or communities behind as tech advancements speed up? What have they learnt to date and what tips would they give someone today?
This is an open talk and audience engagement throughout is more than welcome. There will also be a Q&A session at the end.
Places are limited so registration is essential.
*If you can't be there, you don't have to miss out: we will be live streaming this event on the Venture Taranaki Facebook page so you can join us virtually!
You should be present for the whole duration of this event.
