Renée Hollis is from Nelson and is an author, photographer and organiser of collaborative projects for creative artists. She is currently the New Zealand marketing manager and publicist for Exisle Publishing, a non-fiction international publishing house based in Dunedin. Renée would like to share her experiences of interviewing 120 centenarians throughout New Zealand - what she learnt on her travels and what wisdom was shared. Renée will also talk about her time with the oldest person in New Zealand (at the time), Madeline Anderson was 111.
