We hold events for our alumni, friends, and the general public for people to connect with the important conversations in leadership.
Subject matter experts and prominent New Zealand leaders share their knowledge and engage with the audience, sparking new ideas and innovation as minds from different backgrounds converge and focus their energy on a salient issue or theme.
Our sixth retreat beckons us to a familiar gathering, one of friendship, of learning, of challenge, of the inevitable chance/choice to self-grow, self-explore and self-love.Read More
When we first got together as a group in February, I was struck by what an impressive, confident and high-achieving group of people it is. What I didn’t fully appreciate then, but do now, is the extent to which the 2018 cohort reflects the diverse society we live in.Read More

We are half way through 2018 – how are you doing in your part of the leadership ecosystem?Read More
We have now reached the point in our Leadership NZ journey, that when the group meet, it’s like connecting with old friends. The 2018 cohort met enthusiastically at the idyllic Caccia Birch House in Palmerston North in anticipation of what lay ahead. Although a little chilly, the sun was to shine on us physically and mentally throughout the next two days.Read More
We arrive into a shared space. Sit in front of invisible pou, bright morning sunlight memorializing silhouetted edges of a fale. Lounge furniture is backed up against the walls of a rectangle living room. Ula-draped photos of family, sports teams, choirs, da Vinci’s The Last Supper, white net curtains blowing across open windows. Every place we have ever sat in this way, is also here. Va tagata.Read More

Thursday 24th May dawned. The start of Session Four - crisp, but not too cold. Entered the NZTE Majestic Centre Building, pushed level 15 in the lift.

This year we have chosen the theme – “Awakened Leadership, in the future of work”.
We live in a world fraught with complexity, volatility and rapid change, and as leaders, it can be a huge challenge to keep up with innovation and technology developments and predict what is required moving into an unknown future. In particular, we are curious about how we prepare ourselves, our people, and our organisations to adapt and respond, or indeed drive the change.
So, Awakened Leadership... what does that mean?Read More
Leadership is not an easy thing to define. So you would expect that would be the place to start for a leadership programme that runs as eight retreats over the course of a year. Find out if Eoghan Walsh got his watertight definition of leadership from our first session.Read More
