Enormous thanks to Kevin Hester for hosting, organizing, and funding my recent speaking tour in New Zealand. I appreciate Kevin’s willingness to take the proverbial slings and arrows in stride as we worked together to create a hugely successful tour.
The tour would not have been possible without contributions from numerous hosts, drivers, cooks, organizers, and all-around wonderful people. These included the following, with our apologies for those we missed: Sid Aksoy, Jessica Rowe, Catherine Ikenn, Jef Ikenn, Roger Gale, Gill Minogue, Nancy Peterson, John Clarke, Tim Lynch, Grant Farrow, Paul Judge, Annie Hester, Olsen Ziggidy, Juanita McKenzie, Brent McKenzie, the McKenzie family, Pam Crisp, Robin Westenra, Rachel Hart, Greg Hart, David Pate, Mandy Cresswell, Chris Creswell, Penny Wilkinson, Pete Wilkinson, Bronwyn Minto, John Minto, Nigel Hopkins, Pala Molisa, Shane Herman, Leanne Watkins, Gen de Spa, Fergus Wheeler, Nicky Walker, Dido Dunlop, and Karl Pearce.
I appreciate Pauline Schneider’s myriad contributions on the tour, including a forthcoming documentary film. A trailer is embedded below, and the film will appear in this space within a few months.
