About this Event

ACT Leader David Seymour will address the Wellington Chamber of Commerce about ACT’s vision for New Zealand ahead of the Government’s May budget and as we navigate our way through a COVID world.

ACT has a bold vision for a freer, more prosperous New Zealand. A New Zealand in which: businesses and workers are free to earn a greater share of the rewards from their efforts; the next generation is free to build houses like our grandparents did; we take a 21st century approach to funding and operating infrastructure; our primary industries have the confidence to responsibly take advantage of our natural resources; and businesses and innovators are not held back by crippling regulation.

About the speaker:

David grew up in Whangarei with two younger brothers, where his parents were a pharmacist and a draughtsman. As a teenager, he moved to Auckland for high school before graduating from the University of Auckland in electrical engineering and philosophy.

After starting work as an engineer, the phone rang and David moved to Canada where he worked as a policy analyst for a think tank. During this time he appeared on almost every Canadian media outlet on topics from taxes to taxi regulations.

After returning to New Zealand in 2011, David advised John Banks on the initial policy development for Partnership (charter) Schools, before the phone rang again for another job in Canada with Reform Party founder Preston Manning.

Today, David lives in central Auckland and, when he is not promoting ACT, tinkers with the sports car he built, plays guitar (when nobody else is in earshot), enjoys a craft beer and keeps up with friends and family.
