ABOUT

We have been in the event creation business for over 20 years. Although new to the Bay of Islands in New Zealand, we have previously been Maverick Solutions in England.

As such, we have encountered a wide variety of opportunities, helping clients create solutions that (more than) meet their aims and objectives for their events - big or small, corporate or community.

We aim to exceed expecations.

LESLEY LUCAS

My passion is to create, organise and deliver fun events and experiences to bring people together to connect and inspire them to take time to freely enjoy being ‘in the moment’

I am an experienced business owner. I have bought, developed, operated and sold several businesses, as well as volunteering in business associations and local communities. I co-founded Maverick Solutions UK in 2000, a venue finding and event management company where we created and delivered events and conferences for a diverse range of clients. Set-up as a successful business model of remote home workers; which included 5 years running it from New Zealand; we sold in 2017. In 2012 purchased Bay of Islands Holiday Apartments and Campervan Park in Paihia New Zealand, subsequently also purchasing an existing local gym in 2016.
After selling both businesses successfully in 2018 my husband and I took time out to travel and discover amazing places around the world. 21 countries in 13 months.
