Peter Townsend, the Chief Executive of the Canterbury Employers Chamber of Commerce (CECC), came to dinner with the House and spoke about "Christchurch, city of opportunities."

Peter emphasised that Christchurch is going to need collaboration from all those involved in its future, with many career opportunities available for University of Canterbury graduates in the rebuild. He believes that it is in times of adversity that communities pull together the best, and that Christchurch is a hotspot for innovative young men and women to fulfil their potential. A very inspiring speaker; we look forward to Peter's next visit.
