We know by the middle of the week we all need a bit of sweetness! Well, we have an evening of TIP TOP Ice Cream + Desserts from one of our local Cafe's to help you get that sweet sugar buzz you need midway through the week, slogging it out with all that study & exam pressure!
Adding to that Sweetness, we are so excited to have Cat Levine join us for this years Coast Stress Less Initiative!
She will be bringing an encouragement on how you can get the best out of yourself with her message;
"Study Hacks for Exam Success"
- How to reduce exam anxiety & prepare like a Pro!

Two of her favorite things! Cat Loves Dessert & Teenagers!
While honing her speaking craft, Cat Levine has spent the last 20 years studying human behaviour and emotional intelligence. The combination has led to career success and lasting social impact.
2016 and 2018 saw her involved with her father's Great NZ Tractor Trek, where 15 tractors drove from Bluff to Cape Reinga while raising funds and awareness for hospice. In March 2020, she was on the road again, this time partnered with Mr Mike King - a national icon for Kiwi mental health and hope - for another Tractor Trek.
Cat spoke about mental health at numerous schools along the trek route until Covid cut the trek short.
As well as raising money and bringing emotional intelligence and humanity to the business world, Cat has also devoted herself to helping underprivileged minorities raise themselves out of poverty.
She has spoken to over 100,000 people around the world, including Cambodia, Pakistan, Thailand, Samoa and Vanuatu,
and she is particularly passionate about empowering exploited women and children by teaching self- worth and providing education and work skills.
In 2017 and 2018, Cat travelled to Pakistan to speak at schools, brick kilns, women's and leadership conferences. She is passionate about returning on a regular basis and doing what she can to encourage and up-skill the people she speaks to.
In 2020 she volunteered in Ohlen Mataso, Vanuatu, providing vocational training for the women in the village who make jewellery out of recycled materials.
Cat is married to Steve and a proud mum of three teenagers, 2 dogs and a cat. Her favourite things in life include a great cup of coffee with friends and volunteering where ever and when ever she can.
