MUV Talks: Shaping Lives

August 29 @ 5:45 pm - 8:30 pm

We are super excited to be teaming up with Brothers in Arms for a MUV Talks Benefit Event.

Come share a special evening with friends and to be inspired by seven humans making a meaningful difference in young people’s lives.
This time, MUV Talks will be donating all money raised in tickets to Brothers In Arms to help them in their inspiring mission.

What is Brothers In Arms?

Brothers in Arms has been supporting mentoring relationships with children and young people for over 13 years. We promote fun and play because it’s awesome for youth development. So every day, across Auckland, volunteer mentors and young people are laughing, kicking a ball around, telling jokes, having fun, hanging out and building trusting relationships. Thanks for supporting this MUV event, with your help, we can support more mentoring relationships and make a difference for more for kids in our city.

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:
