NELSON GROUP 25TH ANNIVERSARY
The Nelson Group of the NZ Society of Executive Secretaries was officially formed on the 31st of August 1991 with 30 members. Membership has risen and fallen over the years and we now have 35 active members. This milestone was recently celebrated at the Gala Dinner of the AAPNZ National Conference held in Nelson in August 2016.

BULLYING IN THE WORKPLACE, with Julia O'Connor
Bullying in the workplace happens all the time, even in the Nelson Tasman area!
Bullies generally pick their victims because they’re in some way different from them. This difference may pose a threat to them or make them uncomfortable. The differences could be anything including culture, religion, gender, age, disability, intelligence, etc. Bullying can create all sorts of problems for the victim including low self-esteem, depression and anxiety.
Our guest speaker, Julia O’Connor, has many years experience working in a variety of areas including Family Law and Employment Law. In addition she has worked as a Disputes Tribunal Referee, and at present working at Nelson Bays Community Law Service as both a solicitor and legal educator.
Julia will educate us further on this topic and tell us how we can cope with bullies if we find ourselves in this situation.
