Jesse Mulligan to host Waikato Business Awards

Jesse Mulligan will host the Westpac Waikato Business Awards on Friday 7 November at Claudelands Event Centre in Hamilton. His cohost will be TV3 journalist and presenter Samantha Hayes.

Jesse will return to his hometown for the event, which celebrates the most successful businesses in the Waikato region over the past 12 months. He’ll also perform a comedy routine to add some entertainment to what promises to be an excellent and celebratory night out for local business people.

Mayor Julie Hardaker is expected to attend the event, along with Auckland Chamber of Commerce head Michael Bassett. It’ll be the second big event Jesse has MCed in Hamilton recently: he hosted a retail roadshow for Spark on Monday, welcoming frontline staff to the Christmas retail season.
