Guest Speaker: Maj (Rtd) Greg Moyle ED, JP
Topic:  The NZ War Memorial Museum and Visitor Centre at Le Quesnoy, France - The Greatest Story Never Told
The New Zealand division in WWI was one of the most formidable fighting divisions of the British Expeditionary Force. When they found themselves staring up at the towering walls of Le Quesnoy, they knew something remarkable would have to be done to liberate this quiet French town from German occupation. Join Greg as he unravels the heroism that led to a century long friendship between the people of Le Quesnoy, France and New Zealand. A story that would go on to shape the beginnings of what the New Zealand Memorial Museum is today.
After graduating as an Accountant in 1975, Greg was employed in a number of accountancy-related roles before joining the NZ Police in 1980. Whilst there, he studied law at University. He left the Police in 1984 to teach accounting at the University of Auckland and to complete his law degree. In 1986, Greg joined the Department of Justice as a senior investigating accountant in the corporate fraud unit. Since 1987 he has been involved in the financial planning industry, now the Principal of Financial Planning NZ Ltd, also known as One Plan for Retirement.
Greg is a founding Trustee and past Chair of the NZ Memorial Museum Trust - Le Quesnoy and, as a current Trustee, is actively involved in the establishment of the Museum and Visitor Centre.
