GridAKL Lysaght Building



We are turning 3 and we want to celebrate with you!

Join us for a special edition dedicated to ‘The Kindness Impact’.

It’s not news that a simple act of kindness can make someone else’s day. It’s also known that kindness in the workplace creates a haven, not only for your team but for your customers as well. Come along to celebrate 7 inspiring change-makers creating kindness and compassion in Auckland, and to hang out with awesome people!

During this edition, we are supporting Mandy Reeve for International Kindness Day NZ with her challenge: Inundate Auckland with over 5000 random acts of kindness. More info about it at

What is MUV Talks?

Is a non-profit series focused on building capability and relationships within communities. What makes it special is that it is driven by the purpose of celebrating and empowering everyday people who are doing incredible things. We focus on sharing stories that may otherwise not be heard.
Each event consists of seven talks for seven minutes, from a diverse set of people with different experiences and points of view, talking about one common theme. Our unique approach to networking helps to create an energetic and friendly environment that guarantees an exceptional experience for our attendees.
We held the first New Zealand event in November 2016, themed ‘Epic Women with Epic Stories’. You can check out the talks on our Youtube channel:

Meet Mandy Reeve

Mandy is a Transformational Coach. She is passionate about helping people reach their potential and live a life that they are passionate about and feel is successful on their terms.
After the atrocity in Christchurch earlier this year, she got thinking why do we only come together in a crisis? What could she do to keep the generosity, kindness, looking after each other going every day?
Mandy is now on a mission to inspire a generation of Kiwis to be kinder every day. She is starting with inspiring Aucklanders to do over 5000 random acts of kindness in the lead up to Global Kindness Day.
