An event dedicated to the entrepreneurs and those obsessed with self development.

Six times a year we invite and assemble a panel of industry innovators that take the time to explain what it takes to become a master in specific fields in a live Q&A environment. They share their experiences and war stories and spare no detail in order to paint the perfect picture of what it takes to really achieve goals.

"Whatever your're thinking think bigger"


We are what we repeatedly do, which then means - Excellence is not an act but a habit.

Habit 7 is a work shop series and forum where we discuss trends in business that business owners and leaders need to be aware of and educated on. We invite industry experts to present on each topic and provide practical advice and takeaways to help our community develop meaningful habits that in turn will lead to business excellence.


The Villager is our new, new member night where we welcome our newest chamber members to the Village. It is a social evening that focuses on making new connections in a facilitated environment - business owners and leaders who may fear the awkwardness of networking usually find the Villager the easiest event to begin new relationships.

We invite new member and current members as well as those seeking to find out more about what the chamber does to the Villager events. We run facilitated networking activities to ensure people have genuine reasons to talk and connect. We work to create the perfect format for getting to know who's who in the zoo.


Business After Five (BA5) events are hosted by Waikato companies and organisations. Generally hosted at the members venue these are fantastic networking events coordinated by the Chamber. They provide valuable opportunities to educate the market on your business and meet with other professionals. These are extremely successful and popular so if you're interested don't delay.


The Waikato Chamber of Commerce holds regular Business Briefings throughout the calendar year. Members of the Waikato business community are invited to attend this hour-long session providing a business focused update with a Q&A component. The topics cover a variety of issues or developments that affect businesses in the Waikato region and New Zealand in general. These briefings are entertaining, informative and excellent networking opportunities.
