Coming soon to a place near you...

 

 

Below you'll find my schedule for public parenting talks for 2015. Hopefully there is one near you.  Many of the events will have incomplete details. Further details on exactly where the event is located and how you can purchase tickets will be posted on this page once these details are finalised. This information is usually available 2-3 months out from the event. So keep an eye on this page or sign up for our newsletter so we can let you know all details for events in your area as dates approach. In the meantime, keep these dates free if you are in the area for one of these talks!

If you are wanting to contact us on behalf of a school/early childhood/organisation to arrange a parenting or fundraising evening, we are sorry to advise, we are unable to accept any new requests for 2015 as the schedule has been put together from the requests received over the past year or two and the schedule has been finalised as below  - sorry if I wasn't able to make it to your place! 

If you are considering Nigel for a fundraising event for your school/preschool/club/organisation, hopefully we can do something for your school or group in 2016. Please contact us  and I will put you on our list of requests and we will get back to you around September 2015 to advise if we are able to proceed with this in 2016. If this is possible, fees/further details will be advised at that time for your approval . Thank you so much for your enquiry - we really do appreciate your patience.

Auckland (Pukekohe) - parenting: The Politically Incorrect Guide to Raising Boys and Raising Girls

 

We’re constantly being bombarded with people telling us that boys are in crisis, or girls are, or both. We hear an awful lot about the lack of male role models on boys, and the impact of pop culture on girls. We also hear a lot about Mars and Venus and all the latest ‘brain science’ which at first glance seems to be saying that boys and girls are so radically different we apparently come from completely different planets. What’s really going on with our boys, and what’s really up with our girls? In this entertaining, thought provoking, and informative show Nigel will give you the answers to all this stuff as he takes the audience on a ride through the business of getting boys and girls all the way through childhood, adolescence, and beyond, in a complicated world.

 

When: Monday 16th March 7.30pm

Where: Pukekohe High School Hall (Food and drink will not be available to purchase) Door raffle.

Ohoka, Canterbury - parenting: The Modern Family Survival Guide

 

Many of us are trying to understand how to raise children in a completely new family landscape.
More and more of us are living in blended families... and we’re also all facing new issues like technologically dependent teenagers, a tidal wave of alcohol and drugs, and a whole pile of other issues our parents’ generation didn’t have to even consider.
In answer to all these complex issues Nigel presents an evening of evidence-based opinion and simplifying common sense. Just because the issues are complicated, doesn’t mean that the solutions have to be.

 

When: Thursday 7th May 7.30pm

Where: Ohoka School Community Hall, Jacksons Road, Ohoka, Canterbury

Gore - professional seminar: Dust Homeopathy and the 24 Hour News Cycle.

 

Note: this seminar has a health focus and will predominantly appeal to health professionals, academics and leaders in healthcare innovation

Why does it always seem to be that science knows the answer, but no one seems to be listening? How is it possible that anyone can actually believe that water has a memory, that vaccinations are bad, and that fluoride will turn you into a pumpkin? In this address Nigel will give his take on why public health professionals have such a hard time convincing the world that science has figured most of this stuff out. It turns out that the 24 hour news cycle has an awful lot to answer for. If you believe in the healing powers of crystals this will probably be a somewhat challenging session, but everyone else should find it fairly interesting. 

 

When: Monday 11th May
