Over 100 guests enjoyed a night of entertainment and awards at the annual NZACS Peter Jowett scholarship and awards evening at the Stamford Plaza in Auckland recently.


Our entertainment delivered a night of surprises, singing, comedy and general mischief-making.

The Peter Jowett speech competition was keenly contested by our five finalists. A 10-minute presentation was delivered by each contestant focusing on their identified opportunities in our industry. The two winners received a trip and accommodation to the NACS show in Las Vegas in October.
