About the speaker
This month’s speaker, creative powerhouse Bridget Taylor, is using her CRAFT to lead the way in the call to make the advertising industry in our country more diverse.

When home, she was one of the twenty New Zealand women selected to complete the 2011 global leadership course, Global Women.
When Bridget’s not creating marketing, she likes talking about it. She has just completed the fourth series of the hit ABC show The Gruen Transfer, where she demystifies advertising, or at least tries to….

It’s tempting to get caught up in the latest and greatest, but we try to remember who we are doing this for and what it is we do best: roasting delicious coffee and creating meaningful coffee experiences for folks who simply love coffee. We roast coffee for our amazing customers; be they café owners or enthusiastic home brewers - coffee drinkers! And luckily, we still get to drink it too. At the heart of Supreme is people, and the way coffee connects us. Perhaps our core product is not, in fact, coffee, but instead, what happens over a coffee shared - generous hospitality.
At antipodes we believe the heroes of the table should be the food and fine wine so we chose a water source that has a mineral fingerprint subtle enough to refresh but not alter the palate. Antipodes is very proud to support CreativeMornings Auckland because everything we do in life requires a creative mind.
At Almighty, we strive to be socially innovative with the way we do business (juicy business), and creativity has always been at the heart of social innovation, exploring new ways of finding solutions to world problems that are more just, more efficient, more sustainable and, sometimes, just more effective. We choose to support the CreativeMornings breakfast lectures to not only encourage others to take part, but to engage in this discourse ourselves, to learn, and to take part in some small way.
Bread & Butter Bakery specialises in organic, long fermented sourdough breads and handmade pastries, cakes and savouries. Bread made in this way does not need any additives or baking aids, instead the traditional slow fermentation creates all the flavour and texture and simultaneously makes the bread more easily digestible. Pastries are made with real ingredients, no out of the bag powders or ready to use fillings. Bread & Butter believes in supporting and giving back to the local community that support us. We therefore work with various charities, schools, and creative people and hope to contribute to a vibrant and viable Auckland city.
We love that we make every jar of Fix & Fogg from start to finish in our factory in Wellington. From designing our labels to our carefully blended peanut butter, we’re completely hands-on throughout the entire process. We think our award-winning butters are so popular because people can taste the difference in a product that’s handmade by humans who care about quality.
