There are some things in life we take for granted; that we don't realise are important until they're gone.

This webinar was run as part of our It Starts With Action campaign, and was all about considering what matters to you, and how you can ensure it's protected.

Watch the replay:



Hannah Ockelford (facilitator)

Hannah is an independent contractor, facilitating events for corporates and organisations in the not-for-profit sector, much of which has recently been virtual. Hannah is also the driving force behind the public events hosted by Professionelle and ASB Bank. She curates and hosts these popular and entertaining events with some of the country’s most senior professional women.

Hannah spent the first 12 years of her career as a broadcast journalist, for the most part at TVNZ. While completing a post-graduate qualification in business, she transitioned into the corporate world, spending more than five years working in marketing and communications for a global professional services firm. Her work here required her to work alongside a variety of senior stakeholders in the Australia/New Zealand region and beyond.
