ANTONY CAMERON – OPERATIONS MANAGER
In 2007, Antony was the Senior Project Manager for A to Z Building Solutions where he had contractors, builders and labourers reporting to him for large renovation projects. Antony has a natural leadership style that is both engaging and effective. He brings a down-to-earth and relatable approach to INfuzed meetings. Antony has a highly creative side to his ‘toolbox’ of expertise and is the energy behind new ideas such as ‘OUT OF THE BOX’ networking events and ‘TRADIES BEERS & BBQ’s’.
Antony was inspired to create the concept of INfuzed four years ago when he recognised there was a need for an authentic networking group that did things differently. Over the past four years we’ve identified that most small business owners need encouragement, support and a safe place where they can be honest about what’s really going on in their business.
“We are proud to have created a Business Community where honesty, integrity and professionalism are always present. Our INfuzed groups will also encourage deeper business relationships within our membership that others can trust and rely on.”

Chris Turner –
MA11 PAPAMOA FACILITATOR
Chris found coaching after two careers and 30 years of successful self-employment but with no sense of purpose. Reading and attending workshops had created some shifts, yet something was still missing. In 2007, Chris admitted he was desperately unhappy. Chris found clarity, direction and purpose by working with a Master Life Coach. “It was like hitting the jackpot!”, he says. Chris coaches because he knows first-hand that when we create a new way of being it impacts all areas of our lives: Relationships, Health, Finances and Career.
“I joined Infuzed because being self-employed or a leader in business is also a personal journey. In growing a business, you will inevitably be challenged in many areas including your beliefs and perceived limitations. Infuzed meetings provide a safe, supportive environment to air personal concerns and tap into members’ knowledge and experience to progress the business forward.”
Chris’ Offer: Complimentary private 1 hour consultation, plus an evaluation of all areas of your life today including monetary beliefs.
Caleb Hall –
MA9 THE LAKES FACILITATOR
Caleb had an interesting introduction into the business world. In 2016 while in the professional rugby scene Caleb received a season-ending head injury which forced he and his wife to reassess their life path. They made a decision to stop trading their time for money and embarked on what has been a remarkable entrepreneurial journey. Currently Caleb is involved in four separate businesses stretching across diverse industries including Happy NappyZ, where they are seeking to become NZ’s preferred subscription service for baby goods and beyond.
“I chose to partner with INfuzed because after 9 months of battling away myself, I realised I work best when I am rubbing shoulders with like minded people and that I also have a lot to offer others if given the chance. INfuzed is a great opportunity for both theses things to take place.”
Caleb’s offer for anyone connected to INfuzed: 50% discount on your first Happy NappyZ subscription pack to try the service for yourself.
